The heavens are telling...
... the glory of God.

Yesterday evening I was reviewing Isaiah 40 and looking at the stars. I was just so amazed when I realized that the space between two stars I was looking at, that looked about 4 inches apart was really billions of miles. I was seeing billions of miles of space from my square foot of ground and its just all there. When I looked at the stars a long time, looking into them, I could
see the depth of spheres floating in space instead of just a "jeweled dome" It was awesome: "Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
"Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel - "My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God.' ? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not grow tired or weary and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

Who can look at the stars and not put their hope in the God who made them?

Just browsing! Your picture looks like my screen saver. Also I will be singing Haydn's Creation in a couple of weeks with the college choir I'm in, so I know that verse. I'm currently reading Isaiah with my Pastor's bible study group. Have fun!
