“We will not have the experience of Moses as God allowed him to look upon His back.” (Exodus 33:17-23). “We cannot expect to see the throne and the One upon it with John.” (Revelation 4). “But we must see the glory of God in His book, the Bible, in the book of things He has created.” (Romans 1:20; Psalm 19:1).

Albert Einstein, world-renowned physicist, had little use for organized religion. I don’t defend him in his view of organized religion, but I understand it. Einstein, who died in 1955, felt that preachers do not have enough respect for the greatness of the Creator of the universe and that he saw more of the majesty of God through his telescope and his study of physics than through the preaching of preachers.

All of us need to see the glory of God because His majesty is indescribable. Consider some facts. Researchers detected a galaxy 13 billion light years away by a faint ultraviolet light. It made the third time in the same year that astronomers found what they thought was the most distant object ever viewed. It is estimated there are 100 billion stars just in our galaxy. The sun is one of these, and travels at 155 miles per second, which means it orbits our galaxy every 200,000 years.

Now, our God spoke all of this into existence. This God has said, ‘To whom then will you liken me, or to whom shall be equal?’ says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these things, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power’ (Isaiah 40:25-26). No wonder David said, ‘The heavens declare the glory of God’(Psalm 19:1). See His glory! Be stunned by His majesty! ‑Jay Lockhart (adapted)
