“To Him who made the great lights, for His lovingkindness is everlasting: The sun to rule by day, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,” (Psalm 136:7-8)
In the beginning, God separated the day from the night. In Him is light and He is the light of the world. Come into His presence and stand in the light. Be guided by the goodness of His grace and mercy. Know that the Lord, the creator of all life, gives us hope and freedom. One does not need to search for meaning, for meaning has come and He has called you into His eternal presence.
Lord, I think in physical terms. Did You make the creation to make yourself known? Did You create the sun and light so that physical creatures could begin to comprehend who You are, the One who made us? These thoughts are too wonderful for me. You are great and greatly to be praised. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of Your goodness and mercy that I would always trust and follow You.
Lord Jesus, You have come so humbly that many ignored You thinking that the One through whom all things have their being could not possibly be so humble. Yet You are, and You have called for us to follow You. Guide me to be humble as You are humble. Lead me to see that in You is hope and glory. Teach me this day that I would walk in the light of Your countenance, doing what is pleasing in Your sight. Amen.
