Eclipse 2017: The Glory of God
We know that the sun is a dependable friend that gives light and life. Likewise, the one who made the sun is also a dependable friend who gives light and life. Today's eclipse is a reminder that "the heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork," which is to say the skies proclaim the work of his hands (Psalms 19:1).
In his online article published on August 20, 2017 entitled, "Are Solar Eclipses Proof of God?", Eric Metaxas of Fox News writes, "the man who wrote (Psalms 19:1) didn’t have a telescope or a Brittanica, but he saw something many today still do not see. He saw a God behind it all. It may be true that seeing a Grand Designer behind these breath-taking events requires what we call a leap of faith; but it may also be true that seeing mere coincidence behind them requires an even greater leap of faith. In my mind, much greater. Today, you may be the judge."
Seeing that the sun is a dependable friend that gives light and life, an eclipse could be viewed as a disruption of the natural order, but the eclipse will eventually end and God will continue to reign!
