Psalm 8 (KJV)
8 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
CREATION is no accident! It did not come about with a HUGE, BIG BANG! Like a ‘Kaboom!’ with the wave of the wand of a magician.
Our Omnipotent God ‘planned’ Creation. He is Almighty God of Order, as in the Genesis account of Creation. He saw that at the end of each day of His Creation ‘it was good‘. The heavenly bodies all move in their own unique order within the vast Universe which God maintains with absolute mathematical precision. The moons and planets, stars and planets orbit each other without colliding, each with their own rate of rotation and revolution.
Also, there are over 100 billion galaxies, and Earth exists in one of them which is called the Milky Way. According to astronomers, it is an ‘average size’ galaxy 120,000 light years across and contains 400 billion stars of various sizes and brightness.
While 8 major planets are known and studied in our galaxy, it is estimated to be as many as 2 billion planets in the our solar system. Earth is the largest of 4 terrestrials with Mercury, Venus, and Mars all which can be seen with the naked eye. The other 4 are the gas giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Jupiter, the largest planet, can be seen shining brightly in the night sky.
WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE HAVE!
