The Light of the Lord goes on through the ages. It penetrates the darkness as God so wills. Thank You, Lord, for penetrating my once dark heart!
“Let all that I am praise the Lord. O Lord, my God, how great You are! You are dressed in a robe of light. You stretch out the starry curtains of the heavens.” Psalm 104:1-2
While watching one of the Nova programs on PBS this past week, pictures from the Hubble telescope dazzled my brain. As humans discover more and more of the cosmos, they wonder even more. How? Why? When? Where is it going as it rushes in a seemingly ever-expanding rush to—??? Infinity? What is infinity?
The brilliance of the stars, the galaxies, and the puzzling question of dark matter astound the astronomers as they search for answers. Was a Creator mentioned on this program? No.
There is no word to adequately describe the “mind” of God. As my eyes drank in those astounding pictures, those swirls of cosmic beauty, I wondered how any astronomer, much less any of humanity, could deny a Creator’s existence when presented with such evidence.
Oh, you brilliant astronomers–and you are brilliant–as you carefully name the new galaxies you find, remember that God named them and each star, first.
“He counts the stars and calls them all by name.” Psalm 147:4
Jesus is referred to as “the Morning Star shining in our hearts.” 2 Peter 1:19
“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line? What supports its foundations, and who laid its cornerstone as the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?” Job 38:4-7
God hears the stars sing out and he hears our prayers. The great designer, dressed in His robe of light, will not fail us. His Holy Spirit, sent to us through the “Morning Star shining in our hearts,” hears us, teaches us, consoles us and guides us. Thank You Father, Son and Holy Spirit, mighty Creator of the universe. Amen.
