Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Yesterday, scientists announced that there may be 3 times the number of stars thought to exist. In an article called “Starry Starry Starry Night: Star Count May Triple”, a new study says that there may be 300 sextillion of them. It notes “That is a 3 followed by 23 zeros. Or 3 trillion times 100 billion.”

That is a LOT of stars! What is even cooler is that Psalm 147:4 says this “He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.” That is a lot of stars to keep up with.

For me, this was a “shout out” to how great and awesome God is! Psalm 19 says:

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.

One of the scientist in the article says “is equal to all the cells in the humans on Earth — a kind of funny coincidence”. And the same God who knows the number of stars knows the number of hairs on our heads. Wow! He is worthy to be worshiped!

    He is most definitely deserved to be worshiped. We are faith based in our Christianity, but it is always cool to see what God reveals to us through His creation affirm our faith and encourage us. God’s memory bank is enormous, and isn’t cool he thought about us? And cared for us? And cared about even the hairs on our head? The heavens declare the glory of God!

    It is hard to believe that many of the same scientists who find these facts do not believe in God. Not only are the stars vast and more numerous than we can imagine, these stars are massive! If I were to put a picture of the biggest known star at this point on a wall 15ft. in diameter, I couldn’t take a pen and put a small enough dot to represent our sun. Our God created these massive stars in the sky and knows each of them by name.
    The knowledge of God is astounding and to think that we are made in His image, how much more does He know us? He knows how many hairs are on my head! He cares for the birds and what they will eat! How much more does He care for us? This is a god who is truly indescribable and He gives us the privilege to come before His throne and worship Him. We worship a personal God. We worship a compassionate and gracious God who has made himself known to us. We worship a great God!

    Wow this is really amazing! God’s creation is so vast and intricate, and yet as you and others have said, he knows it so intimately. It’s really humbling to think of the enormity of creation, coming to the understanding that we are so small and seemingly insignificant, and yet to be faced with the reality that the creator of all of this has individually created us and knows us down to the last cell. I love discoveries like this because I believe that science, rather than proving the absence of God, only proves the existence of God all the more, so the deeper our scientific discoveries and understanding go, the deeper our understanding of the God who created it all goes!

    Praise the Lord!

    Incredible! Just goes to show that it takes more faith not to believe in God than it does to believe in Him…it makes sense! Literally everything in creation points to a Creator. This article reminds me of Romans 1:20 – “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” It is so obvious that there is a greater Being behind this masterful creation!

    Wow, what an incredible finding! Psalm 33:6 says, “By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.” What an incredible image. To think that God just spoke things into existence is incredible. I agree with Chris when he wrote, “I believe that science, rather than proving the absence of God, only proves the existence of God all the more.” Who could believe that God does not exist?
