Yet according to an astrophysicist from the Goddard Space Center, our own universe is only one of hundreds of billions of other galaxies—each being made up of billions or trillions of its own stars.
Micro-physicists, on the other hand, looking inward, instead of to the skies, describe a universe within atomic systems of micro-matter that is as unfathomable as the universe without.
Long before the day of astro or micro physics, King David wrote a song about the unspoken language of the day and night skies (Psalm 19:1-5) as a backdrop for what our Creator has said through spoken and written words (Psalm 19:6-14).
The last words of David’s song express his belief that what he was hearing from the skies, and from the Scriptures, wasn’t a one-sided conversation. He concludes with the thought that as he listens… he believes in a God of the heavens who is big and personal enough to be listening to the thoughts and intents of our hearts (Psa 19:14).
Back in 1952, an author by the name of J.B. Phillips wrote a book for skeptics and believers titled, “Your God is too Small”. He suggested that because many of us have not found a God big enough for our modern needs– we tend to think of God as a resident policeman, a grand old man, or a managing director.
Yet sometimes I wonder whether that book needs a sequel titled, “Your God is too Big” … i.e. to be concerned about us… or to have visited us in a body like our own (John 1:1-3) (John 1:14).
