That sounds simple enough. One short statement about God making the stars. Have you ever gazed at the heavens during a clear night? Or seen the wonders that are set up in the vault of the sky?
I have always been interested in astronomy. I think I did a model of the planets for a science project once in grade school. My sister used to lay on the ground with me at night and tell me the funny sounding names of constellations, such as: Casseopia, Big and Little Dipper, Orion, Taurus, or Leo. And showed me where to find stars and planets, like: Rigel, Canis Major, Venus, Mars, or the North Star. As a youngster, I had no idea what these wonders were or how massive they were compared to our sun. I just knew that it was amazing. And I have learned more amazing things about these things we call stars.
We knew there was much to find but had no idea. God knew. Man has been star gazing and naming stars for centuries. God has every star named and knows the place where to find each one in space. Many of the stars were named after Greek and Arabic names. It will be interesting to learn what God's names of the stars are!
We all know that people used to believe that the earth was flat and was the center of everything. That all the objects in the sky rotated around earth. In the 1700's, a suggestion of anything contrary to this was considered heresy and the suggestor was pegged as a pagan. Sky-gazers were trouble makers and had much to fear from the powerful theologians and government who were closely tied with them. The beliefs were eventually overhauled as astronomers invented bigger and better telescopes and continued to gather knowledge about what deep space revealed. What they saw agreed with the Word. Isaiah 40:22 speaks of how "He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth..." and "...Look around you: Everything you see is God's—the heavens above and beyond..." Deuteronomy 10:14. Space was full of discoveries.
I was watching a show about astronomy the other day. It was mentioned that they are beginning to realize that the galaxies have orbits. They were not speaking of the orbits of the celestial bodies within the galaxies, but rather that the entire galaxies are all orbiting around something. Dare I say that "something" is the Creator? Orbits within orbits. This reminds me of Ezekiel chapter 10 where it reads, "And then I saw four wheels beside the cherubim, one beside each cherub. The wheels radiating were sparkling like diamonds. All four wheels looked alike, each like a wheel within a wheel...The wheels likewise were full of eyes. I heard the wheels called "wheels within wheels."
