On the surface, this seems like a worn out subject.
Staggering amounts of space.
Staggering amounts of mass.
Everything in motion, all the time, with staggering precision.
We can figure out where a star or planet will be 127 years, 37 days and twenty-nine seconds from now.
Well, we can’t, but there are some computer-aided humans out there who can.
So what is there to say besides the big WOW that has already been extracted from us before?
Then I saw an awe piece.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.” Psalm 19:1-3 AV
While God’s glory is MANIFEST in sundry ways, such as through the design of animals, birds and fish (Job 12:7-8), He placed sound in the cosmos.
Sound is vibration. Vibration is time and space in a particular alignment.
The sound/speech/language/voice of heaven is embedded in the light (time/space) emanating from the cosmos.
Because nothing on this little lump we call the earth was anywhere near big enough to capture the immensity of God. It took an orchestra of 200 billion galaxies to even begin to do justice to the majesty of our God.
And it is a full-time job, as the celestial display is relentless, and it covers the entire surface of (space) the earth. Time/space without pause or blank.
Unparalleled worship, riding on the largest expression of space that we can conceive of, a space that is synchronized with a stunning precision of time.
What an orchestra!
