Psalm 136:5

who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever
(NIV)
With knowledge and understanding God made the heavens.

Look at the Sombrero galaxy and consider the understanding of God.



Now consider the sheer number of other galaxies that are in the heavens. This picture was taken when the Hubble space telescope pointed at a seeming empty part of the sky. It reminds me of when God told Abraham to look up at the stars of the sky and count them. Then He says, "if indeed you can..."

Consider the understanding of God.

And yet this universe is not as big as His love.

    This is the stuff I want to soak up into my marrow.

    Psalm 139:6-12 sums it up well....

    ....Such wonderful knowledge

    is far above me.

    7Where could I go to escape

    from your Spirit

    or from your sight?

    8If I were to climb up

    to the highest heavens,

    you would be there.

    If I were to dig down

    to the world of the dead

    you would also be there.

    9Suppose I had wings

    like the dawning day

    and flew across the ocean.

    10Even then your powerful arm

    would guide and protect me.

    Thanks again Matt.
    I hope you & your family have a great Sabbath this weekend.

    Shalom,

    JONO

  2. That is a great Psalm, and it does summarize it very well.

    Although You may have to tack it on to every post for the next few posts.
