DEVOTION: Creation Day Four: Sun, Moon, and Stars


[14] And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
[15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
[16] And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
[17] And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
[18] And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
[19] And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Alabama was hit by major tornadoes on April 27, 2011. The F4 tornado that came through Madison County caused the power grid to be disrupted to the point that there was no electricity in Huntsville and Madison County for almost a week. People living in the city had not seen the stars at night for many years due to the bright lights of the big city. These people could now see those stars for the several nights there was no electricity. Seeing those natural lights made us appreciate all the ways that the Lord had provided light for the world, both physically and spiritually. Having the light of the Lord helped us through the tragic situation that had happened in our community by helping us to be able to see the way forward.

Dear Lord, thank you for the lights you have provided us to light our way, both by night and day. Amen.
