God is amazing!
In 2011, NASA in the USA celebrated 30 years of the Space Shuttle programme. The first Shuttle, Columbia, was launched in 1981, and I re- member it as being a very exciting event at the time. Over 350 people went into space on the Shuttles, and some of them helped to build the International Space Station.
NASA has now retired the Space Shuttles and it is now focusing on deep space exploration. Since the 1950s people in the US, Russia and other countries have invested huge amounts of time and money in trying to study, understand and explore the immensity of the universe. Many astronauts lost their lives, including two Shuttle crews.
But God is so much bigger than this, and His majesty stretches so much further than what we can possibly measure. In Isaiah Chapter 40 it says that He knows each star by name. And in Psalm 8 David is awed by God's sheer size and brilliance. 'Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the Earth!' Yet He has crowned us with glory and honour. We can share in His majesty. Wonderful!
When you look up at the stars in the night sky, you can ponder and be overwhelmed by God's majesty and by how amazing He is. He wants us to seek Him; He hears our prayers and praises and He meets us just where we're at. He wraps His arms around us and says 'I love you'. Because of Jesus we have access to heaven and because of the Holy Spirit we can be filled with His grace, love and power.
So may you find wonderful rest in God's presence this week, may you be aware of His majesty, and may you truly know how amazing He is and how much He loves you and wants you to live for Him and do His will.
