Ok, I love star-gazing. I’m looking to the SW and see the red planet, Mars. To the right of Mars is the bright planet, Saturn. If you look below Saturn, the bright star is Antares. That star is so far away that the light you are seeing began its journey (traveling 186,000 miles per second) before Columbus sailed the ocean blue.
Genesis 1:16 “And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars.”
When you read Genesis 1:16, it’s almost as if the stars, in their incomprehensible immensity, were an afterthought. “Oh, by the way, He made the stars, too. No big deal.” Our God is awesome!
