Just One Of God’s Thoughts?

February 3, 2018 Leave a comment

SpaceI love looking at NASA’s Hubble image of the day, and I subscribe to several daily news feeds which send me announcements about the latest space and astronomy happenings.

I’m drawn to the heavens because I’m able to see the incredible beauty of God’s handiwork there. “The heavens declare the glory of God and the sky above declares his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1.

Scientists tell us when we look at the heavens above our heads, even with the most powerful of telescopes, we’re only able to see a minuscule portion of the universe. Human beings can never fully grasp the vastness of the world our Creator has made all in order to display His glory.

I believe God intended it to be that way.

God created an incomprehensible universe because He is incomprehensible. The immense heavens reflect an immense God, giving us, at best, only the barest pinhole glimpses of a God of unlimited power.

Someone has suggested perhaps the Universe is just ONE of God’s thoughts. How mind-blowing is that?

Trying to comprehend the power behind a Being who can create the Universe is impossible for a finite human creature. It’s just as impossible to understand the grace of God in making provision through His Son for human beings to live with Him in His Universe forever and to enjoy a personal relationship with him.

Psalm 8:3-4 “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?”

What to know more about the possibility of a personal relationship with God? Watch the video below.

Bits And Pieces 8/13

Here are a few random, but interesting (at least to me) items I’ve run across lately.  They don’t really fit together, so they are just bits and pieces.

An Interview With Paul In Jail:  Here’s a fictional account of one of the Apostle Paul’s old friends coming to see him while he’s locked up in a Roman prison.  He asks his friend, “Has Jesus Been Worth It, Saul?”

A Starry Sky From Joshua Tree:  Here’s a time lapse video of a meteor shower and the galactic core of the Milky Way as seen from Joshua Tree National Park.  See the heavens declare the glory of God through The Milky Way.

Evolution Refuted: Here’s an animated video from the website, Answers In Genesis, which offers insights and answers to the evolution debate.  It only lasts about two minutes and it’s simply called Evolution.
