A Higher Perspective

line

When we think of the creation story,

it`s easy to the focus primarily on the Earth and occasionally on her sister planets.

Such a narrow perspective does not give an accurate depiction

of the awesomeness of God and His creation.

Pictures can say a thousand words,

so let’s visually explore our universe, starting with the planets in our solar system.

These planets revolve around our massive Sun

yet our Sun is pretty small when compared to Arcturus,

one of the brightest stars to be seen from the Earth.

This enormous star, Arcturus, is pretty small when compared to Antares

… which is some 700 times our Sun’s diameter.

Most of us have probably heard of the Milky Way

– the galaxy that contains our solar system.

It is believed there are 200 to 400 Billion stars and at least 100 Billion planets in the Milky Way.

Can you find planet Earth?

Can you find you?

This huge and awesome Milky Way,

is ONLY one of 100 Billion galaxies in the ‘known’ Universe.


Check out this amazing video of the universe and our place in it.

spoiler alert: we are not the centre of the universe!

 

Did all this happen by chance … or by design?

Is this the result of an uncontrolled explosion (Big Bang)

or

rather the work of someone lovingly creating a masterpiece?

 

It`s a decision we all have to make individually.

 

What does all of this say about our God?

He is the creator of the known and yet unknown Universe.

His creation shows how great and awesome He is.

And you know what?

These galaxies are nothing compared to His best creation

… YOU!

You were created in His image and you are the apple of His eye.

He has awesome plans for you.

Plans to prosper  you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.

 

DO YOU KNOW HIM?

 

He sent His son, Jesus, to help you find the way back to Him.

What’s your perspective of Him?

Do you acknowledge His presence and His majesty?

Whatever it is and whatever you believe,

just remember that ….

God is awesome and has got this whole Universe ‘thang’ in His hands.

Be Blessed.
