 sun moon stars

Dear Creator,

Today I thank you for the sun, moon, and stars to light our world, and guide our way. Thank you for the beauty and wonderment in these objects. Help us begin to understand Your greatness as we stand in awe of Your handiwork.

Job 9:9-10

Who made the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the chambers of the south; who does great things beyond searching out, and marvelous things beyond number.

 Amos 5:8

He who made the Pleiades and Orion, and turns deep darkness into the morning and darkens the day into night, who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out on the surface of the earth, the Lord is his name.

 psalm 14 4

Psalm 8:3-4

When I look at 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 the son of man that you care for him?

Several years ago, my son got a telescope for Christmas. I think his Dad and I enjoy using it more than he does. When the nights are warm it’s more comfortable to stay up to take a look at the grandeur of the night sky and observe the planets, their moons, constellations and other astronomical phenomena.

Do you ever wonder if our Creator is communicating with us through His creation? Are you listening? Consider taking a few minutes to go look at the night sky. Don’t speak, just experience the sights. Let God give you a tour of His glorious creation. Spend several minutes just taking it all in. Allow yourself to be amazed, inspired and down-right overwhelmed with the power and creativity of God. (If it’s day-time when you are reading this you can go to

God defined the science that made the universe and how our world functions. He had quite a plan in mind when He set creation in motion. God isn’t just big, He is infinite. God uses His creation as just one of many ways to express Himself and to show us who He is. He spoke and water separated from land, and a variety of plants and animals appeared. He created a world full of diverse landscapes, colors and textures. He created man from dust to become an amazingly complex and intelligent being, capable of having a relationship with his Creator. If our great God made all this, surely He has an amazing plan for you!

Walk in His Light,
