Psalm 33:6 (NKJV)
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
Psalm 33:9 (NKJV)
For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
The word of the Lord is awesomely powerful. Even inanimate matter obeys His word. The picture I get from these verses is the instant obedience of the stars to begin their existence and to take their positions in space. Come to think of it, there is really only one thing that does not instantly obey the Lord God. And that is us--Man.
Judges 21:25b (NKJV)
everyone did what was right in his own eyes.
