I do not even dare to consider how long it takes an aircraft that would fly to one of these stars. But imagine this: the light travels at a speed of 300,000 miles per second, and he still needed thousands of years to reach Earth. This means that the light from these stars who came before, like Moses divided the Red Sea, passing each hour distance of 1,078,231 thousand miles without stopping and slowing down, just to reach the Earth! But this is only the stars in our galaxy. Galaxy – is a huge cluster of stars, usually billions. Galaxy in which we live, called the Milky Way.

Closest to our galaxy the Andromeda Galaxy. It is located at a distance of approximately 2.31 million light years. Imagine, more than two million light years! Scientists estimate there are billions of galaxies, each of which contains billions of stars. Galaxies form clusters. Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky Way – part cluster, formed by at least thirty galaxies. Other clusters are composed of several thousand galaxies. According to the book Guinness World Record in June 1994 opened a new cluster of galaxies, having the shape of the cocoon.

It is estimated that the distance between the outermost star cluster is six hundred and fifty million light years! Can you imagine how long it will take you to cross that distance on an airplane? Book of World Records Guinness also claims that the most distant object that yet seen a man at a distance of 13.2 billion light years away. Our limited minds can not even begin to comprehend such a huge distance. We only need to glance at the visible to us parts of clusters galaxies. And God is able to measure it with his span! On top of the psalmist says: 'It calculates the number of stars, all of them called after their name. Great is our Lord and His great strength, and his mind is immeasurable '(Ps. 146:4-5). He not only knows by many billions of stars, but also knows the name of each of them! No wonder that the Psalmist exclaims: 'And his mind is immeasurable. " Solomon said: 'But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Heaven and heaven of heavens can not contain thee … ' (3 Kings. 8:27). Not only the greatness and power of God's glory revealed in creation, but also his great wisdom and knowledge. For many years science has spent large sums of money to explore the creation of the natural world. God's plan and the material from which God created this world – a miracle. We have before us the glorious Creator, whom even the universe can not accommodate. The universe is measured by a span of His hand, but he is so clever design of this tiny earth, and His creatures, that this leads to confusion of modern science and carefully studied the world around us. Now you can more precisely understand the meaning of the words of the Psalmist when he says: 'I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made "(Psalm 138:14). You can also see, particularly at this stage of history in which humanity gained immense scientific material, why the Word says: "The fool hath said in his heart: 'There is no God' (Ps. 13:1). Of course, you can write many books about miracles and wisdom of His creation. But I do not intend to do so. My goal – to amaze and surprise with the affairs of His hands, for they declare His glory!
