Today’s Daily Light:
As a response to yesterday’s daily light…David N. (my friend/pastor) commented “Eternity is more about knowing than going’.
1 John 5:19-20, John wrote “We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We knowalso that the son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true.”
1 John 5:11-12, John wrote “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
I was standing outside last evening…the moon phase for June is in the waxing gibbous phase at 86% full. Every month that magnificent moon hangs out there at 238,900 miles, and goes through its monthly changes from dark to full light as it holds its place in orbit to our earth.. and the beauty and power revealed by it screams out to me that God is Creator and Lord and King of the universe. Last night the lower atmosphere was cloudy and so the clouds served as a soft shear, a cover of sorts..and yet the Glory of God still radiated out from a piece of his glorious creation. The overall artistic impression was a 10+++ 😊
Romans 1:20, Paul wrote to us “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
Father…my heart pounded so hard for you last night as I stood there looking at the awe and glory of Your creation. And I felt you nudging my spirit to worship. You are soooo amazing. So powerful. And yet…you have time to reach out to me/us and invite us to ‘know’ You…to have ‘understanding….to know you now and throughout eternity….wow…and to know the truth because the Son, who is true, lives in us, ‘so that’ we can know You..and know the truth. I worship you great and wonderful and perfect Father…and I thank you for choosing me/us for an eternal relationship. And I also am aware that there are people all around me who saw the same glorious example of your creative power and love in that moon last night who do not know you as Creator and Savior and Lord. And that is because the god (Satan) of this present age has blinded their minds and they do not know you (2 Corinthians 4:4). I ache for them. I pray that today we will all ache for those who do not know you. I pray we will go out and be light to those in darnkness…to those who can look up at the moon and not know that you are God and Creator…and I pray we make a difference on ‘this’ day to those who do not know the Son and who do not have eternal life.
