Drawing of the Observable Universe

I have made several posts of photos taken by the Hubble Telescope, but this is a drawing of the whole universe that we have observed up until this point and its distance from earth. It is absolutely amazing to me what a BIG God we have. The world He created is so vast that we have not been able to see it all, even with high-powered telescopes.

Everything works perfectly and in order day after day. If He is capable of creating such astounding things, how can you ever doubt that He desires to meet your every need.

Give Him all the praise and glory and start this moment to give Him your problems.

Who but God could have Invented these Awesome Things!

I serve  an awesome God who created the earth and the whole solar system with all the planets. Even after hundreds of years, we are still finding galaxies and planets we never knew existed. What man could have ever thought to invent such marvelous things as those in the photos below?

These photos are from NASA/ESA and The Hubble Heritage Team. They were made by the Hubble Telescope.

nasa_starcluster

This is a star cluster with stars of three age groups. There are approximately 10,000 stars here and this cluster is 13,300 light years away from earth.

nasa-bodes-galaxy

This is Bodes Galaxy. It is 11.6 million light years away from earth, and it is 70,000 light years across its whole galaxy.

nasa-saturn

We all know that Saturn is the closest to earth of the three photos. It is 67 light minutes away, and is 9.5 times wider than earth.

I feel overwhelmed as I look at these photos. God is much deeper and more sovereign than we could ever imagine. The whole universe is delicately balanced in his hands.

So if  He has “the whole world in His hands” as the children song says, can’t you trust Him to handle your problems?

Think about His Majesty and Awesomeness the next time you look up at the night sky!

Photo of the Awesomeness of God!

The picture below is an old photo that was released from NASA. It was taken from Lunar Orbiter 1 on August 23, 1966. This is what the astronauts saw as they sat on the moon and looked toward the earth 240,000 miles away.

As I look at this magnificent picture, I think of an awesome God that none of us can really comprehend. He set all the planets in perfect alignment to rotate around the sun. Everything works flawlessly in the delicate balance that God ordained.

The solar system is so vast that we are just now discovering new galaxies and stars that we never knew existed before. How can we look at the magnificent sky at night and not believe in the God who is so powerful to make all this? His awesomeness is beyond our comprehension.

Ask God to reveal Himself to you and show you who He is. He can change your life forever.

What a magnificent God we have!

Make Sure You Aim For The Right Target!

neptune

The planet Neptune was finally discovered on September 23, 1846. Galileo saw it, but thought it was just a star that happened to be next to Jupiter, so he blew it off. Over the course of 200 more years many other astronomers saw it too, but they weren’t paying attention either and didn’t figure out it was a planet.

Finally Johann Galle got it right, but only with the help of a good math friend named Urbain. Johann got a letter telling him that according to Urbain’s calculations, there should be a planet at the exact coordinates of Neptune. He told him to check it out and see if he was correct.

Johann looked through his telescope and WHAMO! there was Neptune right where his friend had predicted.

The moral? Henry David Thoreau said it best: “In the long run, men only hit what they aim at.”

If you look at things with only human eyes, you won’t know how to aim at anything other than what you can see. Only God can see the whole picture and knows what the future holds. Don’t be afraid to walk in places you have never been as long as He is your tour guide leading the way.

Make sure you hit the target that God has set forth for you and don’t aim for anything less.

A Story – Man Challenges God

Doesn’t this story say a lot about the way we live today? It is easy to think we can get organized and efficient enough to be in total control; and it is only when something happens beyond our control that many times we realize we are not nearly as powerful as we thought.

God is the creator of the world and everything in it, so surely he can handle any problem that springs up in your life. Start today and ask Him to show you who He really is. You will find Him to be greater than you ever imagined.

Man Challenges God

(Another Mikey’s Funnies story)

One day a group of scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way and no longer needed God. So they picked one scientist to go and tell Him that they were done with Him.

The scientist walked up to God and said, “God, we’ve decided that we no longer need you. We’re to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why don’t you just go on and get lost.”

God listened very patiently and kindly to the man. After the scientist was done talking, God said, “Very well, how about this? Let’s say we have a man-making contest.”

To which the scientist replied, “Okay, great!”

But God added, “Now, we’re going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam.”

The scientist said, “Sure, no problem” and bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.

God looked at him and said, “No, no, no. You go get your own dirt!”

God made our magnificent sun (photos)!

These pictures came from the NASA site. As I looked at them, I became overwhelmed at the awesome power of God to create such a powerful Sun that could burn so hot for years on end without ever burning out. This is only one small part of God’s magnificent creation that works perfect in every way.

His ability to bring everything together is totally supernatural and beyond anything man can even imagine; plus he only had to speak the word and it all existed. Our God is truly an awesome God!
