Powerful and Personal Creator God

Speaking of Jesus, Paul says in ... Colossians 1:16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

 

It seems like God used a complex system of gyroscopes as a part of his creation by which he continues to give stability to the Universe. I owned a toy gyroscope as a child. Gyroscopes are used for control and stability in airplane navigation, anti-roll devices, ships, trains, seaways and quadcopters… Spinning wheels inside of wheels can be powerful and stable tools.

 

I was thinking about the tiny atom God made which composes all matter on earth; including our bodies. Atoms have microscopic electrons and neutrons that are spinning round and round like the earth does. While spinning they also orbit around the nucleus of the atom like the earth rotates around the Sun but at billions of times every second. Wow! 

 

The earth on the other hand spins at a velocity of about 1,040 miles per hour. Thankfully God created specific laws of Nature one of which keeps us from being thrown off.

 

Simultaneously Earth is orbiting the Sun at about 67,000 mph. 

 

And did you know that our solar system with all the spinning rotating planets and Sun is orbiting around the Milky Way galaxy? Yes; all are circling on a course around the Milky Way at about 155 miles per second.

 

Pretty wild hugh?

 

We’re not done yet! As we orbit the galaxy, the Milky Way it’s self is also moving within a local group of Galaxies at around 185 miles per second. (see zoomastronomy.com for much of this info.)

 

Again, speaking of Jesus, Hebrews 1:3 says: He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Today, lets thank God for Jesus who holds not only our lives but the fabric of the universe together and made a way for us to have fellowship and relationship with him by taking the wages of our sins on the Cross and rising on the third day to be our defense on judgment.
