God is love, and He talks to you. God doesn’t necessarily use audible words, but he does speak through creation through the Sun, the Moon, and the stars.
If you are a person who believes in God, you might talk to God, too. Not everyone feels comfortable with formal prayer.
But every time you think about God, it’s a form of prayer. Your thoughts send words up to the sky and when you look at the stars, you are experiencing a moment with the creator.
People often think of Heaven as some magical place sandwich in between the clouds and outer space.
We can see it’s boundaries but haven’t been allowed in yet.
But have you ever stopped to wonder why we have such a fixation on what’s up above?
The Bible is filled with quotes about the stars, the Moon, and the Sun. The creation story tells us about how everything on Earth was started.
“God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He also made the stars.” — Genesis 1:1
God’s will and love for us led Him to make us a planet full of beauty and abundance. In the first chapter of Genesis, we see the chronology of God’s plan.
After making the separation between Heaven and Earth, He invites light into the universe.
He knew the importance of these beings would be to mortal life. And now we get to celebrate it!
Be it night or day, God’s miracles provide us with inspiration and motivation via the world around us.
The Sun, the Moon, and the stars have been invaluable to humankind for centuries. Obviously, when God said, “Let there be light,” he really wasn’t kidding.
The Sun provides us with vitamins and great weather. It keeps us warm and alive as we orbit through the solar system.
The Moon is responsible for tidal patterns that over time allowed land-dwelling creatures to evolve and adapt to life on Earth.
It also has a gravitational pull on the Earth that slows our orbital path down just enough to keep us in the Sun’s beam for the perfect amount of time.
Without the Moon, we would move around the Sun too quickly to sustain life. The stars have provided wayfarers and explorers with directions for centuries.
Astrologers studies the positioning of the stars from our perspective and mapped out their placement. These stars have kept us safe and informed when on adventures.
We obviously know that the sky is helpful to our day-to-day activities. But how often do we stop, think about, and show appreciation for God’s work?
The Bible is a great tool for inspiration, guidance, and comfort. It is full of the teachings of God’s intentions and Jesus’s time on Earth.
But beyond the concrete advice, the Bible is also full of beautiful stories. What’s more beautiful than a cotton candy sky on a Sunday afternoon? Not much, that’s for sure.
We routinely look up to the sky when praying or think about sending our thoughts upward to reach God. This isn’t necessarily a coincidence.
