I was driving home last night, I couldn’t take my eyes (back to the eyes again) off the moon. I have always been very impressed with the moon, as well the sun and the ocean. What impresses me most about them is their shape and how perfect it is. And not just one day or one night, but every single day, perfect.
The sun rises and sets every single day, and every single day, the sun maintains its same shape – round.
The moon is unique in that it has several shapes – what I call a sliver moon, quarter moon, half moon, almost whole moon, and a full moon.. Each display themselves on cue, at their appointed time every night.
Then you have the ocean. When I stand at the shore and look out as far as I can see, there before me is the straightest line ever drawn in nature. Every day and it doesn’t matter what day, it doesn’t matter how many years go by, the line of the ocean is straight and seems to go for miles and miles. It doesn’t matter where I travel, the line of the ocean remains straight.
Folks those things blow my mind. Such perfect shapes from such enormous objects, set to motion at the same time every day in my time zone. When I change time zones, there they are doing the same things, rising and setting. How could something so complex and so perfect erupt from a big burst? In my mind it couldn’t.
Genesis 1:9, “And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good…. 16:”God made two great lights – the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night.”
Father, your creation just amazes me and shows me how majestic and magnificent you are. I am blessed to be witness to your creation every single day I am on this earth. And Lord I am grateful that as I stand on this round earth, I don’t fall off. A goofy thought I know, but I believe the earth is round. Thanks for thinking of every little thing. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
