“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens … When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” ~ Psalm 8:1, 3-4 NIV

“By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.” ~ Hebrews 11:3 NIV

Can you count the stars? Our solar system, including the sun and the planets that revolve around it, is just one of 200 billion (yes, billion) or more stars making up the Milky Way galaxy. Our galaxy is just one of 125 billion galaxies. Scientists estimate there are 300 sextillion (that’s 3 with 23 zeros behind it) or more stars in the universe … and all those gazillion plus stars collectively are just one of God’s creations!

Ancient people looked up into night sky and somehow knew there had to be something or someone bigger than themselves. So, they imagined that stars outlined gods looking down on earth and named the constellations. But there is a God immensely bigger and more powerful than anything we could imagine or dream up. He created the stars.

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible attributes–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” ~ Romans 1:20 NIV

Creation declares that His glory is set high above the heavens. I serve a BIG God.
