And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. Genesis 1:14-19
Throughout the creation account in Genesis we are reminded that it was God who created all things. But He not only created everything He also gave order to all things. Much of this order we call natural laws. How the universe is governed. Whether it is gravity holding the universe together and keeping planets in orbit around their star or how electrons orbit the nucleus of an atom, all was designed by God.
All creation was also deemed good by God. Everything to serve His good purpose. Sometimes we forget how good the universe is as we get caught up in how bad things are today. God created us and the earth as good but because we chose to disobey God we live in a world that has evil. Not of God’s causing but ours. When we choose to go against God’s moral law we end up with a world full of hurt and pain. We will never get away from it. It invades every part of our life.
We look for solutions but as long as we are looking away from God we will not find them. Darkness is all around us. But just as God created the sun and the moon to shed light on the darkness so he also gave us His Son to again bring light into the world. Most will prefer the darkness. They do not want a light shown on their deeds. But some will follow the light. They will admit their sins and ask the Son to shine on them and cover them with His grace. For them will be eternal light. For those who refuse, eternal dark.
Have a blessed day,
