Check out the incredible lights of God's universe - they're out of this world

Go with me today, to a place out of this world. That's right, the heavens.

When is the last time you really looked at the stars? No, not those in Hollywood, I'm talking about real stars, the incredible lights of the universe. The word "infinite" never seemed more appropriately applied than when describing the number of stars and the size of the heavens. Especially when you're speaking in terms like "hundreds of millions of light years," or "trillions of stars in millions of galaxies." Wow. I don't know about you, but my brain's capacity to visualize those figures hit a ceiling way back in the thousands. The heavens are incredible.

What I find interesting is that man takes such seemingly unproportioned pride in being able to just identify them, count them and even see them. It's a great accomplishment for man to do so, to put the Hubble into space, examine fragments from passing meteors, and even chart those millions of spiral galaxies. To do all that has required the finest minds with the highest degree of technology. But really, we're only just figuring out what's already there. You know what I mean?

Can I tell you something I'm personally sort of proud of? I know who made them. I know who made every one of those trillions of stars, who spoke each and every star into their place. I know who creatively designed every galaxy, and who stretched them across the universe. I know the creator. No, I mean, I really know Him. He is the Lord Jesus Christ. The creator of the heavens and the earth. Listen to what the Bible says in addressing God the creator.

Isaiah 42:5: "God, the Lord, created the heavens and stretched them out. He created the earth and everything in it. He gives breath and life to everyone in all the world."

Psalm 89:11: "The heavens are yours, and the earth is yours; everything in the world is yours - you created it all."

The heavens are incredible, glorious and unbelievably beautiful. They give us a window into understanding God himself. They show us God's creative glory and power. They also speak of God's love for you and me. This verse says that God's love for you, that's right, you, is as great as the universe He created.

Psalm 36:5: "Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens."

Now that's out of this world.
