For Some Perspective, Look Up at the Stars

Tonight, go out and look at the stars.
Let a contrite and humble heart confirm:
God is much bigger than all of us.
Our God who created the stars created us;
We don’t worship stars but Him.
Tonight, go out and look at the stars.
Know who we are in Him.

“He also made the stars.” Genesis 1:16b 

“Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said, ‘Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’” Job 38:1-4
“Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth? Tell me, if you know all this.” Job 38:18
“Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades? Can you loose the cords of Orion? Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs? Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God’s dominion over the earth?” Job 38:31-33

“O LORD, our LORD, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8:1
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” Psalm 8:3-4

praise him, all you shining stars.” Psalm 148:3
