In The Beginning…

The Sun And Moon Rule

On an Alaskan cruise, out in the Pacific Ocean, I enjoyed a miraculous sight.  The sun was setting, closing the day, while the moon was rising, beginning the night watch.  My thoughts went to Genesis 1:1 NKJV,

                “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

As we read further into the story of creation, I realized the truth of this account as I gazed upon the sky.   In Genesis 1:16 NKJV we read,

“Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night.  He made the stars also.”

Simply put, I was in awe and wonder of our God, who did this in the beginning, and faithfully continues to do this daily.  How can we think that there is no proof God exists?  Everywhere we look; we see that He is real, His creation and His word reveal this to us continually; they coincide. From Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, this truly is the word of God. 

“From the rising of the sun to its going down
  The Lord’s name is to be praised.”
Psalm 113:3 NKJV

“Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light!” Psalm 148:3 NKJV
