I have been meaning to write this post for a while after looking up at some fantastic clear winter skies at night.
Everytime I look up at a starry sky I am reminded of the Switchfoot song "Stars" in which the following lines appear:
"When I look at the stars I see someone else...when I look at the stars I feel like myself."
But more importantly Psalm 19v1:
"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork."
For me one of the great things in the creation that points towards an awesome Creator is the sight of a starry sky. Next time there is a clear sky on an evening, and particularly if you are out of the city with all its light pollution, look up and I believe you will join with me in being overwhelmed by the greatness and glory of God. It should keep us humble too, realising just how small we are in this universe, but also amazed at the grace and love of God in saving sinners like us. Let's praise Him when we look around at His beautiful creation.
