There is not a scientist in the world who can explain gravity, something that we experience every day.
When you go to the playground and spin someone on the merry-go-round, that person must hold on for dear life or he will fly off. And the faster you spin him the more he has to tighten his grip. And the merry-go-round is spinning at a mere ten or twenty miles per hour.
Our planet is spinning at approximately one thousand mph.
When an apple falls from a tree we expect it to drop to the ground. But without gravity it would shoot out into space. If you are holding a rock, and then let loose of it, you know for sure that it will drop "down".
Logically, though, at the rate our planet is spinning, the rock should shoot out into space.
Our galaxy rotates at 490,000 miles per hour! That is almost one half million mph! And yet planet earth and all the stars remain stable.
And the astronomers tell us that there are approximately 200 billion galaxies in our universe!
There should be great chaos in our universe. But instead there is order. One of the reasons is gravity.
What or who is behind the amazing power of gravity?
There are fools who believe that it "just happened" like this. There was a big bang, and then suddenly perfect order resulted. Just try the same thing with a stick of dynamite; and then observe how much order there will be. But remember to stand a long way off when the dynamite explodes.
How much more logical it is to believe that a Living God controls our universe and that He is the source of gravity. The Bible tells us that He is the Star Maker and that He has given a name to each one of the billions of stars. Incidentally, He even knows how many hairs are on your head.
Gravity is something that we automatically take for granted. And yet, gravity is a miracle. Without it we would all be flying out into space forever. As for me and my house, we are thankful that there is a loving, personal God who controls the gravity mystery.
