It Keeps Going...and Going...and Going

IN 1977, THE UNITED STATES launched a rocket into space. On board was a small craft called Voyager I, a probe that was jettisoned into space to explore the planets. After Voyager finished sending back photos and data from the planet Jupiter and its neighbors, it didn't stop working. It just kept going.

Today, 30 years later, that tiny vehicle is still going - traveling at a speed of over 38,000 miles per hour. And it is nearly 9 billion miles from the sun! Brilliant scientists sent a ship to the edge of our solar system. It's astounding. It's amazing. Mind-boggling!

But it's absolutely puny when compared to what God has done, It would be like hearing someone brag to the architect of the Empire State Building that he had traveled to the second floor. We have barely begun to explore the vastness of God's creation. Every small step by mankind should continue to put us in absolute -awe of God's power and creativity. While we have left the realm of one star with a spaceship, the Creator of the stars "calleth them all by name" (Isaiah 40:26). After all, He made them. Exploring the universe is amazing. But exploring the God who made it all - that's beyond amazing.
