The Milky Way Galaxy, that we are a part of, has about 200 billion stars (200 thousand million!). The Milky Way is an average Galaxy. So, you can multiply number you got in last paragraph to get a fair estimate of number of stars that are close enough for us to see. Who knows how many are beyond our vision.
And yet Bible says that Heavens were made "By word of Lord". Imagine that!
When you speak a word do you get exhausted? Do you even think about expending any energy at all? Or is it effortless? To think that we serve a God who could speak entire universe into existence without even getting short of breath is impossible to comprehend.
Couple that power with gentle personal and sacrificial love that He gives each one of us and that should really blow your mind!
Until next time, May God Bless! Ron McCluskey http://www.trackinggod.com
