The LORD created the heavens by his command,
the sun, moon, and stars by his spoken word.
(Psalm 33:6 GNT)
With HIs word, the Creator of the Universe spoke everything into existence. Today we know that there are billions of galaxies; our galaxy, the Milky Way, is just one of the billions. We are just a speck compared to the rest of the Universe.
Yet, the Lord chose to give us life on this planet. Everything has been completely balanced for us to have the proper air, 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 for us. So, when you get a chance, look up into the skies on a clear dark night and take in the vastness of the Universe. While doing this, rest assured 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."
