Psalm 33:6- The heavens were made by the word of the Lord, and all the stars, by the breath of His mouth.
On September 27th many of us witnessed a Super Moon Lunar Eclipse. I sat outside in a comfy little lawn chair at my pastor’s house with him and his wife and a few of our friends from church. I watched as our beautiful moon slowly transformed into what seemed to me a huge beach ball in the sky. It looked as if it was suspended in the air just waiting for permission to fall. I thought for a minute that I could reach my hand out and I would be able to touch it.
It was absolutely amazing. As I looked at this spectacular display of God’s majesty I wondered how I ever could have denied His goodness. The beauty that is in His creation is so often ignored. We live in a fast pace world and most of us barely look away from our phones or computers enough to enjoy the gift’s that God has given us.
The problem we face if we don’t take the time to pay attention to what God has created for us is this: We do not thank Him for it. If the chief end of man is to glorify Him and enjoy Him forever it should start now. We should glorify Him by thanking Him for the beauty of earth and space therefore giving recognition to Him as creator God. We enjoy Him on earth now and forever.This is one of our duties as christians and it is our example to those who do not believe.
God spoke our moon into existence. He has created and named all of the stars. When you look into the night sky and see lights that are so many you can not count them, and you realize that you are small and God is big, thank Him.
Loving you and all of God’s creation,
