planets 2


Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Last weekend my husband, son and I went to the Vanderbilt Planetarium. The show was amazing and it opened my eyes to just how insignificant plant earth is in contrast to the whole universe. There is no oxygen in the universe so how our planet is so full of life and so stable has to be a God thing. When you read Genesis 1:1 after going to the planetarium you say to yourself…oh yeah….this planet is a result of the power of God. We on earth think our lives and this huge planet is all that and a bag of chips. You go to the planetarium and you say….we are a grain of sand on all the beaches in the world compared to the entire universe.


Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

The announcer at the planetarium said this planet was made from a big bang. Yeah God said…” BAM!” and a beautiful planet with oceans animals and people appeared. Who does that? GOD! It’s just too incredible to believe anything else.planets 1

There are an estimated 100 billion galaxies (solar systems) out there. So looking at earth in light of 99 billion other galaxies we are really nothing except the God who created the galaxies is our creator and Father. I’m in awe!!!!

If the being who created the entire galaxy is so powerful…How can I not believe that He can take care of me!!! I may have to go through some things in my life time and God has promised to help me through this. God has and is helping me. I need to not dwell on what I’m going through but I need to look at the big picture!

I look up at the sky differently now since I’ve been to the planetarium. I see the sky. I know that there is a cold black universe past the sky. And I know that beyond the black universe there is heaven.

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12:1-4 12 I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. 2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. 3 And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— 4 was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. The third heaven is where God resides.

We are in good hands everybody. Just trust in God!!!

(P.S. You must go to the planetarium and get the big picture. It was a faith booster for me!)
