“He (the LORD) counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name” (Psalm 147:4)
“Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; not one is missing” (Isaiah 40:26)
Not too long ago my very good friend from North Carolina sent me the following email, which I would like to share with you:
Astronomers estimate that there are as many galaxies outside the Milky Way as there are stars in it. The Hubble Ultra Deep Field, taken in 2004, imaged 10,000 galaxies in a cone of space so slim you could cover it with a grain of sand held at arm’s length. Integrated over the entire sky, that would mean there are more than 100 billion galaxies in the visible universe, many with more than 100 billion stars each.Quoted from the Institute for Creation Research
In 1960, singer Ray Price recorded the hymn, “How Big is God?”
Psalm 121:1, 2 aptly concludes, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills – – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth!” If (and since) He could create, He certainly could also care!
