He hangs the earth on nothing. Job 26:7
In his book, Taking Back Astronomy, Dr. Jason Lisle wrote, “This verse expresses (in a poetic way) the fact that the earth is unsupported by any other object—something quite unnatural for the ancient writers to imagine. Indeed, the earth does float in space. We now have pictures of the earth taken from space that show it floating in the cosmic void. The earth literally hangs on nothing, just as the Bible teaches.”
Creation reveals God’s majesty to us. We can see His handiwork in the tiniest creatures He has made, but it’s the vastness of the universe that truly boggles our mind. The Bible says, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made” (Romans 1:20).
The Lord has surrounded us with His majesty—the blades of grass beneath our feet, the twinkling stars above our head. We’re surrounded by His beauty and grace, which should always remind us of His power and glory.
How majestic is His Name!
As in all things, the Bible is absolutely correct when it teaches about the universe.
