Best Verse: Psalm 74:16 “Yours is the day, Yours also is the night; You have prepared the light and the sun.”
Day or night, night or day – they both belong to God. He is the One who created them. He established the sun to rule by day and the moon to rule by night. He placed the sun in its orbit and gave the moon the power to affect the tides of the sea.
Don’t you realize the power that is in that? If these two lights were not exactly placed where they are the earth would either freeze or burn up. The seas would either flood the earth or they cease from rising. God’s plan is perfect.
Have your children ever been to an observatory? They are pretty fascinating. You sit in this dark room and they reveal the constellations and planets to you. Of course, they explain everything in terms of science. But we know better. We know who put them all in their places.
Explain to your children the importance of the placement of the stars, including the sun and moon. Explain to them how God knew EXACTLY where to put them to give life on earth. Explain how He had the exact same perfection when He placed them in your family. They were put there purposely. Pretty cool!
Do you struggle with accepting situations in your life? Do you realize that, as a believer, everything that touches your life goes through God’s hands first? The very hands that placed the sun and moon touches your life daily. Won’t you let Him place you in the perfect spot He has for you?
As I look at the sun and moon, Lord, I am reminded of Your perfect plan for me. Thank You for placing me perfectly. Thank You for allowing only those things that You touch to touch me.
