Of the eight planets in our solar system, Jupiter is the largest and its gravitational force is a huge benefit to Earth. When massive objects that could harm our planet hurl through our solar system, Jupiter acts like a giant vacuum cleaner. It sucks comets and asteroids into itself or causes them to veer away from Earth, which keeps us from harm. This is just one way our wise, powerful, and loving God manages creation for our benefit. No wonder the writer of Psalm 93 said, “The Lord is king! Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.”
We worship and celebrate God because He is eternal. He is everywhere, and all creation is but the work of His fingers. God knows everything perfectly and has a perfect purpose for all He has created, including us. He is the source of all truth and is totally reliable. God can do anything and most importantly, God is love. He forgives and grants eternal life to all who repent and accept His Son as their Savior. What a mighty God! No wonder people adore, worship, and seek to please Him.
