Daily Devotional – August 6
Step outside on a clear, dark night when there is no moon and see a sweeping band of white across the night sky; it’s the Milky Way galaxy. It looks like someone spilled a bottle of milk as the hazy white area glows, but in reality, it is the light from a vast number of stars.
The night sky is filled with hundreds of billions of galaxies, each with millions to trillions of stars with each star varying in color, size, temperature and brightness; we also find neutron stars, pulsars, and novas (star explosions) along with nebulae in all their splendor. The more we study the universe, the more we are amazed by its immensity, complexity, and beauty.
In the same way, the more we study the Creator God, the more amazing He becomes to us. His power and divine nature are displayed through the things He has made (Romans 1:20). And the things we can observe are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! (Job 26:14).
We should not be surprised at all the incredible things we find in the universe!
By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens….
~ Job 26:13a
