The Hubble Space Commentary – Psalm 19

In times like these when so many are downcast and depressed over current events,  it can be particularly refreshing to take a moment or two to simply look up.

Today we have the ability to “look up” on a scale ever realized before in human history.

The newly renovated Hubble Space Telescope is back on line, and the images it is producing are stunning.

In fact, the awesome sights it has recently captured provide a “picture is worth a thousand words” style commentary on one of my favorite passages in the Old Testament – Psalm 19.

Take a moment or two and enjoy the Word, illuminated by the amazing work of our Creator.

“The heavens are telling the glory of God..”

Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1300

“And the firmament shows forth His handiwork..”

A String of 'Cosmic Pearls' Surrounds an Exploding Star

“Day unto day pours forth speech and night unto night reveals knowledge..”

The Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared Light

“There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard..”

“Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world..”

Next time you feel burdened down by the cares of this world, remember the architect of the Universe, Whose mighty power we see in these images, cares for you.

“ To whom then will you liken Me,
Or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes on high,
And see who has created these things,
Who brings out their host by number;
He calls them all by name,
By the greatness of His might
And the strength of His power;
Not one is missing.” (Isaiah 40:25-26)
