When I Consider Your Heavens
Very few people have ever experienced the wonder of space in person. Most of us have only been able to see the Moon and the stars through a small telescope or look up at the sky at night. I’m always in awe when I watch a star twinkle or locate the Big Dipper. The sky is mostly black, but it is dotted with lots of tiny bright lights.
NASA has a new telescope called the James Webb Space Telescope. This new telescope has even better images than the Hubble. Looking at the latest images of space, you almost start to wonder why it is called space. There doesn’t seem to be much “space”; instead, it is filled with stars, planets, and galaxies we’ve never seen.
1 Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.
David could only see a few bright stars, planets, and the Moon when he wrote this. He had no idea that the heavens had more than he could see with his eyes. But, he knew who created the heavens.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the Moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
Look back up at the photo from the JWST. One of those tiny insignificant dots is Earth. We are a small, insignificant dot on Earth, yet, the Universe’s Creator knows us personally. He knows our innermost thoughts and dreams and walks with us daily. WHY??? Why would God care about something so tiny and imperfect when He has the Universe to look after?
We don’t deserve God’s love; He gives it without us deserving it. He gives it to those who don’t even believe in Him or try to live a Godly life. If I didn’t know that I was also undeserving, it would make me angry that God loves everyone equally, no matter what.
I understand what David was feeling when he looked up at the heavens. The Moon smiled at me a couple of nights ago, and I smiled back and said, “Thank you, Lord, for caring for me.” Yesterday afternoon, I walked outside, looked up at the clouds, and was again reminded of the Lord’s majesty.
Attention all webheads: I have some good news from the world—or should I say worlds—of Spider-Man. The insane images…
