In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Gen. 1:1)
“The heavens declare the Glory of God – the skies proclaim the work of His Hands!”
– Psalm 19:1
The tallest mountain is 29, 035 feet.
Oceans cover over 360 million miles of the earth’s surface.
The sun is 93,000,000 miles away from the earth.
The next nearest star is 270,000 times further away than the sun.
1 Light Year = 5,800,000,000
The Milky Way is 100,000 light years across – that’s 588 quadrillion miles.
The next closest galaxy is Andromeda, at 2.2 million light years away…and it is twice the diameter of the Milky Way!
Isaiah 40:12 tells us that “With the breadth of His hand, God has marked off the heavens.
That means as far as it is from one end of the universe to the other is the closest comparison we have to the size of one hand of our God!
When we consider the heavens, the works of your fingers, the moon and the stars which You have set in place,…O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth!
- Psalm 8:3,9
Our God is truly an awesome God!
