What’s even more incredible is that each star shines a light no matter how many thousand light years away it is. And together with all the other stars in the universe, what we see is awe inspiring and an absolutely beautiful constellation of twinkling light.
Just like the stars of heaven, we all have a light to shine, we have significance and a much greater purpose that we cannot fathom until we are in line with what our creator sees.
Genesis 1:14-18 (NIV)
And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.’ And it was so. God made two great lights – the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.
Psalm 147:4 (NIV)
He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
