Star Light - Star Bright

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers -- the moon and the stars you set in place -- what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human being that you should care for them.  (Psalm 8:3-4 NLT)

   Lying on the grass and gazing at the Milky Way Galaxy, I wondered how Abraham must have felt when God said, "Look up into the heavens and count the stars if you can.  Your descendants will be like that -- too many to count."  (Genesis 15:5 NLT)

Wow!  Count the stars?  You must be kidding.  God, how can I ever begin to count them?  Do you mean my descendants will be that innumerable?  I'm sure he must have marveled at God's promise.  It would take a strong faith to believe in such a promise.  Abraham exhibited that kind of faith throughout his lifetime.

Are you a star gazer?  When you look up to the heavens, what do you see?  Do you see the creative power of a supernatural God?  Does the wonder of the heavenly hosts cause you to bow in worship, adoration, and praise?  If not, it surely should.  Take time tonight to worship God by starlight.
