Job spoke of the suspension of earth over nothing, the spread of the northern skies, waters bundled in clouds, and the powerful churning of the sea. He ended his observations by saying about God, “And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”
Millennia later, we see farther into God’s creation and his works than Job could see. The Hubble and ever-larger telescopes reveal planets and galaxies considered to be billions of light years away. A recent headline “Secret worlds ‘lurking’ in the outer fringes of the solar system,” reveals how little we still know.
No matter what we discover with our telescopes, our electron microscopes that can make images to a resolution half the width of a hydrogen atom, or the Large Hadron Collider we will still see only the outer fringe of God’s works. God’s paths are beyond tracing out.
How faint the whisper we hear of him!
Who then can understand the thunder of his power?
WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE!
