With God, nothing is impossible

Day 2

And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the

lesser light to rule the night—and the stars.

Genesis 1:16


Isn’t it amazing that God created everything? From the beyond-comprehension big, to the microscopically small. In Genesis, we read that God create the sun, the moon and the stars. The phrase ‘and the stars’ seems such a small clause for such a huge thing:


There are about 10 billion galaxies in the observable universe! The number of stars in a galaxy varies, but assuming an average of 100 billion stars per galaxy means that there are about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (that's 1 billion trillion) stars in the observable universe!


God is capable of big things – like creating all those stars! Maybe what is more wonderful is that He knows and cares about each of us.


This evening should be a clear night for star gazing. Tonight, go in your garden or open a window and look our into the night sky. As an added bonus, look in a South-West direction at 6:49pm – you’ll see the International Space Station moving quickly across the sky! It should be visible for about 6 minutes.


Spend a couple of minutes thinking about how big God is.
