And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Gen 1:16
For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone Psa 86:10
I watched with fascination a show on NBC about gigantic radio telescopes on an Andes mountain top in Chile. The Atacama Large Millimeter/Sub Millimeter Array built by a multi-national pool of contributions host the worlds largest telescopes> Sixty-six in all- when the project is completed. All of them working in concert aimed at the heavens and broadcasting a wealth of information back already.
A guest Professor of Astronomy explained that within a photo brimming with stars one particular speck of light near the center was actually a galaxy quite like our Milky Way. Imagine that?
Hard to wrap your mind around. I think about God creating the universe and perhaps it began with a huge bang, why not? I think about our God being so magnificent, that perhaps He resides beyond the universe He created.
Now that is something to ponder. God. Spiritual Being in a place outside of the universe He created…..yet able to meet us in our little self-absorbed world. In the very corners of our mind, dabbing our tears, dusting off our hurts, mending our hearts. You and me, the guy around the block with the monster truck, a nobleman of a foreign land, a child hiding in a closet in Bengal, an aged grandmother in Iceland, countless millions of us. Like the stars in the heavens, more than we can comprehend.
I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people. Psa 35:18
And He loves each and everyone of us. How glorious our God is!
Each day we take for granted here in your kingdom on earth, let us at least acknowledge your grand creation, your infinite wisdom, your love for us, and the sacrifice of your Son Jesus for our sins.
Help us Lord to love you first and ourselves last.
