00232 - Our Place in Space

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

Our planet orbits the sun at a distance of 93 million miles. The eight planets in our solar system is two third of the way out from the centre of our Galaxy ‘The Milky Way’. It’s really hard to imagine that there are approx 125 billion galaxies out there. Experts suggest there could be as many as two TRILLION planets in the universe.

We should remember Voyager 1, a long distance satellite has travelled over 14 billion miles, but still has only travelled past Jupiter in our solar system. No human has yet travelled to another planet!

Hebrews 11:3 say ‘By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.’ (NIV) Eventually we will understand space from God’s perspective and see space it in all of God’s glory. There is so much to discover!


We will only ever understand the God when we are free from our earthly limitations.


Lord, I am in awe of You, how majestic You are. Your creation is amazing, I love you Lord. Amen.

Action Point

If you have never understood the scale of space, try and visit a local observatory or search Google for images of space. You will be in awe of the creation of God.
