Guest Post by John Freeman: Job 38:31-32 and The Milky Way from Raven’s Nest, Acadia National Park, Maine.
“Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs?” Job 38:31-32 NKJV
Vast Galaxies made by an Immense God
I love night photography. Anytime I get a chance to spend time out on a clear, dark night under the stars I feel closer to my Creator.
Scientists believe our home galaxy, the Milky Way, contains somewhere between 100 to 300 billion stars. They have also discovered thousands of other galaxies and believe each one contains millions of stars. When I think about that, I believe we should stand in reverent fear of a God so immense He calls the stars the work of his fingers!
When I gaze upon the wondrous night sky and contemplate that God knows the number of the stars and calls them each by name, I’m reminded of the Lord’s words above from Job 38.
