“And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, ‘Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is.’” (Acts 4:24)
Peter and John were proclaiming God’s mighty deliverance to other believers. When they heard about it, they proclaimed God’s mighty power in creation—that He scooped out the oceans, heaped up the mountains, and dotted the universe with stars. He made it all.

A college student asked his pastor, “Do you believe there is life in outer space?” The pastor replied, “No son, I really don’t believe there is.” The student continued, “Now pastor, think about it. There are billions and billions of stars and you don’t believe there is life out there anywhere?” The pastor said, “I can’t prove there is not, but I just don’t believe there is.” Then the college student said, “Well pastor, why did God go to all that trouble of making all that stuff?” The pastor said, “What trouble? God spoke and the universe dripped from His fingers.”
