God's Mighty Power Considered

Last night we took a few minutes before bed to watch a portion of this episode
History Channel: The Universe -- Secrets of the Sun

I don't have all the facts down in memory but this type of information fascinates me both for the grand scale in which it all happens (space and time) and the complexity with which it happens and sustains itself. I'm a firm believer that the design of the universe was not a result of blind forces over eons of time but the handiwork of a wise and infinitely intelligent God.

When God spoke to Job, he asked him to question the knowledge and wisdom of God:
Have you ever in your life commanded the morning, and caused the dawn to know its place, that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it? Have you understood the expanse of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this. Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, that you may take it to its territory and that you may discern the paths to its home? Who has put wisdom in the innermost being or given understanding to the mind? (Job 38:12-13, 19-20, 36)
