Psalm 8:3-4, “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?”
Just looking at the majesty, glory, and splendor of the stars in the sky as a kid, I just couldn’t see how anyone would ever say that God does not exist. When NASA put the Hubble telescope in orbit around the Earth back in 1990, it produced the most stunning pictures of stars, planets, nebulae, and more. These are all just part- a small part!- of the glory of God. The Shekinah Glory of God – the visible presence of God that hovered above Israel in the wilderness as a pillar of fire, and above the Ark of the Covenant in the Tabernacle, is only a mere sliver of the glory of God, and it was an incredible sight to behold.
So, the next time you look to the skies at night, especially if you are in a place where you can really see the stars, remember you are beholding some of the glory of God. It will be surpassed by the glory of God that we will see when we meet Jesus face to face; however, if you want to see even greater glory than this, discover God within the pages of the Holy Scripture!
