Astronomy, an Acrostic

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night.

Stars are sealed up by Him, and the sun riseth not at His command.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork.

Revelation speaks of a star called Wormwood.

O, Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

Numbering the stars, He calleth them all by their names.

Orion, Arcturus, and Pleiades were designed by Him who created wonders without number.

Moon; appointed by Him for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

Ye praise Him, sun and moon: praise Him, all ye stars of light!

    I stumbled upon this site while searching for starry night pictures to put on our song slides for our church worship on Friday nights. Just stopped to say thanks! Its encouraging to find someone who loves the Lord giving Him credit for His great works. He is indescribable uncontainable awepowerful…….. its sad that so many are blind to the work of His hand; especially when looking at the beauty of the night sky. I often think of the way people often seek a “sign” from Him or ask where He is in times of struggle when we are at all times utterly surrounded by His amazing works! Thank you Lord for the reminder of your greatness in the night sky, the heavens declare Your glory!
