Hubble Tuesdays: The Power of God

Looking back at The Eye of God shot I posted on Sunday, I decided that it would be fun to present a series of Hubble shots over the summer. So each Tuesday I will put up another selection. Scripture tells us “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). Well the Hubble has given us a chance to really see that glory and handiwork up close (relatively speaking) in a way that was formerly hidden from the eye of man.

This photo is the remains of a massive star that exploded in a star-forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Supernovas are the most powerful ongoing events in the universe and demonstrate the awesome power of God. Their aftereffects remain visible long after they occur. Whenever God moves in a mighty way, the results ripple through time and space leaving their footprints long after the event.

    Excellent idea to post these images. It is truly amazing to see the wonders of creation and remind ourselves of the awesome power and glorious artistry of the God we serve. I’m looking forward to seeing more.

    And I am looking forward to posting more. There are some really extraordinary Hubble images that will be appearing over the coming weeks. The thing that I want to do is add the commentary, to make it more than just an image.
