Tuesday Inspiration 1.20.15

From Job 9 MSG: God’s wisdom is so deep, God’s power so immense, who could take him on and come out in one piece? He moves mountains before they know what’s happened, flips them on their heads on a whim. He gives the earth a good shaking up, rocks it down to its very foundations. He tells the sun, ‘Don’t shine,’ and it doesn’t; he pulls the blinds on the stars. All by himself he stretches out the heavens and strides on the waves of the sea. He designed the Big Dipper and Orion, the Pleiades and Alpha Centauri. We’ll never comprehend all the great things he does; his miracle-surprises can’t be counted.

Psalm 36 MSG:

5-6 God’s love is meteoric,
    his loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic,
    his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
    nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse,
    slips through the cracks.

When I saw this video last night I was blown away. I watched it again a moment ago and it gives me chills. This is just a portion of the total image of Andromeda. According to Space Telescope: “This is a cropped version of the full image and has 1.5 billion pixels. You would need more than 600 HD television screens to display the whole image.”

As the video pans deeper and deeper you see tons and tons of stars. It reminds me that there are so many of us humans in the world, and God formed each one of us. Just as this galaxy is breath-taking, in God’s eye’s we too are breathtaking. He keeps track of all of us.

If God can make things in His image, I like to imagine that this enormous galaxy is reflective of Him. Just like it says in Psalm 36 His love, loyalty, purpose, verdicts are just as vast as this image. You would need much more than we can see to display the whole image of who He is.

Our God is amazing.
