And God made the two great lights – the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night – and the stars.Genesis 1:6
We read about the creation of stars within the very first chapter of the Bible. When you think about what a star is composed of, it’s quite awesome: the Sun, for example, is 109 times the size of Earth and can reach temperatures of 15 million degrees Celsius. The sheer size and power of the Sun is incredible, and God made it!
When we look up at the night sky and see the amazing work of the Creator, how great it is to know that he has designed everything perfectly, and he holds the whole world in his hands. He controls the storms, the skies and the land – how great it is to know the power of God!
