No one knows how many stars exist in our universe. With our naked eyes, we can see only a few thousand on a clear night. Experts tell us there are at least a billion stars in our galaxy alone–the Milky Way. There are at least a billion galaxies in our universe. To get across the universe would take 10 billion years traveling at the speed of lightó186,000 miles per second! Any way you ponder it, our universe is huge. When we realize that God merely spoke and all these stars appeared, we marvel at God’s wisdom and power. The Bible helps us understand God’s nature, attributes, and plans. Here is a text from Isaiah chapter 45: “The LORD is God. He created the heavens and the earth and put everything in place. He made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos. ‘I am the LORD,’ he says, and there is no other. I publicly proclaim bold promises. I do not whisper obscurities in some dark corner. I the LORD, speak only what is true and declare only what is right. ‘Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other. I have sworn by my own name; I have spoken the truth, and will never go back on my word: Every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess allegiance to me.'” Of course, some people try to dismiss God and deny His presence in the world. But you and I know that God is real. We can never escape God’s presence.
