Standing in the driveway looking up at the full moon recently, I had difficulty seeing any stars because of the brightness of that larger light. Psalm 8 came to mind. “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have set in place. What is man that you are mindful of him and human beings that you care for them.”
And I recalled a time many years ago when we stood on a beach in Palm Coast. It was midnight and we were anticipating a shuttle launch from Cape Kennedy. On that moonless night the sky seemed very black and the myriad stars very bright. And we gazed in awe. Suddenly to the south a faint light began to glow and then gradually become bright and we knew that we were watching the shuttle zoom northward. It seemed to speed towards us and then make a quick bend heavenward. Soon it disappeared from our view. It was a night I’ll never forget. We witnessed the glory and grandeur of God and man’s ingenuity as we watched the sky that night.
The heavens declare the glory of God and the skies proclaim the work of His hands. ~Psalm 19
All around us we see evidence of our Creator. He created the universe, the earth and the heavens, and He declared it was very good. He made us in His image and He tells us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. How great is our God!
