When I consider Your heavens. Psalm 8:3
NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite has made some remarkable discoveries recently; including a planet that’s as dense as pure water, a lava world that sizzles at more than a thousand degrees Fahrenheit, and a comet that belches out tons of ice, dust, and gas.
God’s power is displayed throughout the world and across the heavens. When we look upward at the stars or downward at the intricate blades of grass at our feet, we see the workmanship of a great Engineer, the artistry of a great Designer, and the glory of a great Creator.
Isaac Watts wrote, “I sing the mighty power of God that made the mountains rise, that spread the flowing seas abroad and built the lofty skies.”
God’s power is available to strengthen His children through Jesus. It’s available to you. The Bible speaks of “the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe” (Ephesians 1:19). If you feel weak today, remember God doesn’t. Consider His heavens, and be strengthened by His Spirit.
Who can study the science of astronomy and contemplate the star-lit heavens with a knowledge of the dimensions of the celestial bodies, their movements, and their enormous distances, without bowing his head in reverence to the power that brought this universe into being and safely guides its individual members?
