So did you see the “super moon” this past weekend?
It was due to be a full moon anyway, but combined with the fact that its orbit brought it closer to earth this time, it was amazing. It even woke me up in the middle of the night. It was so bright, it looked like a spotlight was aimed at my bed.
Loved it. God put on a show for us, and it was spectacular.
If it came up every night like that, we wouldn’t be impressed. Another night. Another sky. But every once in a while, God does something out of the ordinary to remind us of His power, His glory, and His presence.
Sometimes in the middle of our dark times – our night seasons – God will choose to do something amazing and surprising. Something that will actually make us appreciate the night because it makes His glory so much more, well, glorious.
Maybe you’ve resigned yourself to ordinary nights. Maybe you think your dark time will never have anything glorious about it. But wait, and look up.
God just might do something…spectacular.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? Psalm 8:3-4
Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! Psalm 148:3
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. Genesis 1:3
Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; For the LORD will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. Isaiah 60:20
