The LORD created the heavens by his command,
the sun, moon, and stars by his spoken word.
(Psalm 33:6 GNT)
With just a word, the Creator of the world spoke our universe into existence. Today we know that there are billions of galaxies; our galaxy is just one of the billions. We are a tiny speck compared to the rest of the Universe.
Yet, the Lord chose to give us life on this planet we call Earth. Everything has been completely balanced in order for us to have just the right air and temperature and everything else that we need to live as He created us.
For God to consider us and to have made us in His image, we can only stand in awe of His love. The next chance you get, look up into the skies on a clear night and take in the vastness of the Universe. While doing this, know that the Creator of the Universe is holding you in the palm of His hand.
"Consider the beauty and fragrance of the flowers, the exquisite nature of the butterfly, the stateliness of the horse, the cuddliness of the little puppy. Look up at the stars in their courses and at the sun sending forth its life-giving rays. In all the works of nature let your mind dwell upon the glorious wisdom of God."
