Have you ever found yourself in a crowd wondering what everyone is staring at? That was me, when it came to the night sky.
I knew that ancient astrologers charted the planets and believed they controlled our destinies. I knew that, when Isaac Newton realized heavenly bodies obey the same laws we do, he birthed modern science.
Yet I didn’t even know where to find the planets.
Curiosity got the best of me. With the help of a creation astronomer, I found Mars near Venus. Then Jupiter, Saturn, and Mercury. Extending for a billion miles, the colorful gems line up like the necklace of a King.
Now I’m a planet hunter. The regular motion of these heavenly bodies reminds me of what God said. He keeps his covenant with his people, just as surely as he has “established [his] covenant with day and night and the fixed order of heaven and earth” (Jeremiah 33:25).
