Did you know that every star you see in the night sky is bigger and brighter than the Sun? The Sun is a dwarf star, but it’s much closer to us than the stars we see at night. In fact, the bright star Deneb, which is prominent in the evening skies of Fall and Winter, is 19 quadrillion miles away.¹
If we will take the time to contemplate God’s creation – watch it and think about it, His majesty and power will astound us.
You will see things you never noticed before. And that, will bring you closer to the heart of God. So let’s all slow down and take a closer look at what God has made. It’s pretty amazing.
God spoke: “Lights! Come out!
Shine in Heaven’s sky!”²

“Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens…
3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?” Psalm 8:1,3,4 NIV
