Consider His Creation

CONSIDER HIS CREATION

Consider this little fact – – God’s creation is AWESOME and is so VAST – – planet
When you think and comprehend that God’s love for us has no end — “How high?  How low? The depths….?”
And to recognize the fact that He loves me. I am so reverently honored.

Think about this:

The sun is our nearest star. It is 93 million miles from earth. Do you know how far away our next-nearest star-neighbor is? Suppose we attempted to draw a crude map of the universe on a blackboard. Let us place a dot in the center of the board. This will represent the earth. One inch away, we will place another dot. This will represent the sun. Our map scale will be: 1 inch = 93 million miles. If we wanted to place yet another dot, identifying our next-nearest star, the blackboard would need to be four and one-half miles long! Remember, each inch of that distance would represent 93 million miles. If we desired to extend our map just to the center of our own “little” star-community, the Milky Way galaxy, the blackboard would need to be 25 thousand miles long, each inch of the way being the equivalent of 93 million miles. It is an understatement to suggest that the universe is “vast.”

PSALM 19
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.

3 There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.

4 Their voice  goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,

5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is hidden from its heat.

7 The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.

8 The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.

9 The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever.
The ordinances of the LORD are sure
and altogether righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.

11 By them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.

12 Who can discern his errors?
Forgive my hidden faults.

13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then will I be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.

14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

I HOPE YOU FEEL LOVED TODAY – – Be encouraged…………  His Universe is a grand picture of God and His heart for His people.
