Picture for Show me more

Around Christmas time in one of our Thoughts for the Week, we showed a picture of star clouds and I likened it to a picture in my imagination of the Wise Men guided by a star. The picture, taken by the Hubble Telescope, was a view of clouds of stars 6,500 light years away and has actually been called, “The Pillars of Creation”. I guess it was the furthest we have ever seen and that seemed to be an appropriate name for the picture.
 
Now, however, we have the latest telescope launched on Christmas Eve just a few weeks ago and it’s called, “The James Webb Space Telescope”. This telescope will apparently ‘see’ well beyond anything we have seen before and will seemingly tell us what happened at the beginning of time.
 
The difficulty I have is that every time we develop a new telescope we see new worlds beyond our imagination and then the next telescope sees even more worlds beyond that. The scientist do seem to be pushing their boundaries, but God is saying, “Keep looking, I’ll show you more, little man”!
 
I’m look forward to the middle of the year when we shall see the first pictures that this new telescope reveals. I’ve got a funny feeling that the astronomers may raise more questions than answers!.
 
I think that they need to ‘see’ with their hearts first and then know we have a Creator God who made the heavens and earth, and that very Creator God is their personal Saviour. Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God …..” read the whole of the Psalm. John 1:3 says, “Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made”. I wonder what God has got in store for those astronomers!!
