Have you ever taken time to think beyond your neighborhood, town or city? Have you sat and looked out at the ocean waves on the beach and really thought about how the horizon is SO far away? Have you ever gone up in an airplane and been impressed by the amount of land you can see?
Now take it a step further. Have you been to a planetarium (our favorite planetarium is at the Creation Museum) and watched the presentation about our solar system, Milky Way and the universe? It is just breathtaking! And to think about the fact that it is all there, in perfect order, made by God on the fourth day of creation.
And have you ever wondered why? Why did God make put all those galaxies, stars, moons, planets, comets, asteroids, black holes, supernovas and much more out there? I heard someone suggest that it is all there to show us, men and women, just how awesome God is.
It worked. I agree. God is awesome!
Take a minute to meditate on this scripture:
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:15-17
Our God really is an awesome God!
