Week 1, Day 2: John 1:1-3; Psalm 8, 104
This morning I read this from Psalm 8…
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens … When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? -Psalm 8:1, 3-4
And then today I click on a link and see this updated Hubble Telescope picture of what has come to be known as the “Pillars of Creation.”
The article I read (that you can access here), then included an infrared version, which removes the gas and dust and reveals an enormous field of stars!
Wow. The heavens truly do declare the glory of their Creator! How can one not look at such majestic beauty and not respond with the Psalmist…
Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent. -Psalm 104:1-2
