Dave's Daily Devo - July 22

Contact with the Heavens

Psalm 134

 

Like Carl Sagan, the astronomer from Cornell, Stephen Hawking, the Cambridge physicist and the most famous scientist in the world, has teamed up with Yuri Milner, the Facebook and Alibaba investor, to pour 100 million into seeking to make contact with ET. This new project will collect as much data in a day as SETE (The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) does in a year.

I’m all for scientific exploration and the pictures from Pluto and its moon blew us all away. I only pray that as Hawking and Milner stretch their telescopes deep into outer space, they would join the psalmist as he closes the Songs of Ascent and lift their hands toward their Creator.

“Lift up your hands toward the holy place and bless the LORD. May the LORD bless you from Zion, the One who made Heaven and Earth.” Psalm 134

LORD, Hawking and Milner are spending millions to find out whether or not humans are alone in the universe. Help them to wake up to the fact that You have already answered their question about “aloneness” and it didn’t take millions of dollars to make contact. Thank you that even little children know the Bethlehem Baby who came from beyond the reach of radio telescopes so that we would know “God so loved ….”
