Proverbs 30:2-4 Surely you know

Surely I am only a brute, not a man;
    I do not have human understanding.
I have not learned wisdom,
    nor have I attained to the knowledge of the Holy One.
Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
    Whose hands have gathered up the wind?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak?
    Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is the name of his son?
    Surely you know!

We so often find ourselves turning to favorite passages in the Word. Sometimes they are verses of comfort; sometimes they are verses that tell us of our redemption; sometimes they are passages that remind us of the privilege of having Christ as our confidant and friend. All of these are wonderful -- they are all a part of our Christian experience, and part of being born again.

At other times we come across verses like those for today. Like a whirlwind, they clear our minds and cause us to focus on who the Father truly is. They remind us of His awesome power and His strength and majesty.

He created the vastness and beauty that we take for granted in our world and in our galaxy.  He literally spoke it into existence!
Look around you and see how vast this universe is that God has made. God is truly all powerful. The power of God is amazing and it has always been a wonder for me. I often  look at the clouds and the sky and am just amazed by God’s power.  
Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways,
and how small a whisper do we hear of him!
But the thunder of his power who can understand?”  Job 26:14
It is he who made the earth by his power,
who established the world by his wisdom,
and by his understanding stretched out the heavens. Jeremiah 10:12
But our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases Psalm 115:3
“Ah Lord GOD! Behold, you made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for you!”  Jeremiah 32:17
Our world is a compelling testimony to the power and majesty of our God. Let's thank Him today, that He has loved us "from the beginning", and has provided a way for us to always be with Him!

Two things totally amaze me...
First, that God has so much power, that He created such a BEAUTIFUL world for us and just spoke it all into existence.
Second, that unbelievers think the world was created by a big boom. For Pete's sake, where do they think that big boom originated?!! You don't get nothing from nothing.
