An Astronomical Grace

So, in the beginning, God spoke, and creation came into existence. Most of us know this foundational truth. God spoke and there was water and air, daytime and night time. God just opened his mouth, and things just came to be.

Did you know that light moves at a velocity of about 300,000 kilometers each second, so in one year, it travels about 9,500,000,000,000 kilometers. Did you also know that there is a new star created every second. The sun is approximately 93,026,734 miles away from earth, and burns at the core at a temperature of 22.5 million degrees Fahrenheit. Our universe was not an accident.

The point of all of this is that we are really, really small. In the scheme of things, earth is teeny tiny! We can go on in life, thinking that we are the point of creation, or that our problems are bigger than most things. Although God does care so much about the smallest things in our lives, and most certainly the bigger issues too, we serve a God that is to be feared and loved. When God spoke, the sun came into existence! The sun is 22.5 million degrees Fahrenheit! That is something that we cannot comprehend.

So do not place God in a box with yourself as the leader of all things. God is in charge, and desires to lead us, and lead us with love and wisdom. The God that we serve is the God who created everything. Even the very cross that his son died on. At this reality, we bow down, and worship our loving Creator.
