His Hands Stretched Out the Heavens

The way I see it, NASA has incontrovertible evidence of God's existence. Simply examine the NASA photo gallery and the Astronomy Picture of the Day. You will sense deeply the hand of our Creator God. This is a very worthwhile government service!

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
(Psalm 19:1)

Lord Christ,
You are sovereign over all,
over the heavens, this planet, over me.
Shape and direct my life.

Almighty God,
Who made the earth…
Created mankind…
Whose hands stretched out the heavens…
(from Isiah 45:12)
Forgive my shopping list prayers,
half-hearted service and token offerings.
Transform my missteps into greater faith and obedience.

There is no rock like our God.
…the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s
Upon them he has set the world.
(from 1st Samuel 2)

Creator God,
As you set the stars and planets in place,
set my priorities, set aside my resistance,
and place your purposes first and foremost
in all areas of my life.
