He made the Stars also…

I am one of those people who believes God created the world in six, 24-hour days (Moses described each day, “the morning and the evening were the first day” Gen. 1:5). On the fourth day God created the sun and moon and almost as an afterthought it seems, “He made the stars also.” (Gen. 1:16) Scientists say the light from the galaxy of Andromeda would take 2.5 million years to reach us. However, when God created those stars their light was already visible on earth. One conclusion, God created the stars purely for our enjoyment.

Some read the starts to determine their future. Every time I look up at the night sky I’m reminded of how God took the time to reveal His love to me. I am reminded of how magnificent His power is. I am humbled that such a God, who is so powerful, would love someone like me. To some, those distant stars may just be made of hydrogen and helium and various gases, but quite literally, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalms 19:1

  1. Scientists also tell us each star has its own frequency, or multiple frequencies. Could not this be a “vocal” declaration to the glory of God in His ears? In a way that only He can hear?? Our own sun is a continual burning of explosions, and, yet, it is never consumed! (A larger “burning bush” demonstration?) What a powerful outcry to the glory of our God! But despite all this, I stand in awe of the majesty, magnificence and grace of our Father when I gaze into the fullness of the night sky. And it seems to be brought much more close when the hand of my precious bride is held in mine.
