THE SUN STOOD STILL
Greetings! I have not blogged for a while, but I think you will find that I will work harder at it. I got a little discouraged as I thought so few read it and it took time every day. But, as one reader said, it helps me, and it will help others, and like a ripple affect it will make a difference. I was reminded that even Jesus had only 12 disciples. So, if it helps others.... I'm game.
Today, I bring a truth from Joshua 10:13- "Ans the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day." This blog is called: The Sun Stood Still.
It would seem amazing that the Sun Stood Still. Now, we look at things and say: the Sun doesn't move, the earth moves around it. Right? Well, right from our prospective. But, you see God inhabits the universe (not just our solar system) and from His prospective, everything moves. But how God did it is not the discussion. It is the fact that God did it. You see, even the Sun bows to God's command. Everything! Everything was created for His pleasure! To God, it was no more a feat for the Sun to stand still as it is for a robin to pick up a worm God laid out for him in the grass. God controls all! Not just created all, but controls all. Wow! There is no way we can fathom the greatness of our God, but see the Sun as just one of his mega trillion, trillion creations. All of which bow to His pleasure.... except for one. That's right, it is us. We are stiff necked. We don't bow easily, even to our Creator. But we should! I don't want the Sun, an in adamant object, to be more obedience than I who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ. The Sun shames us it that it does what is asked of it. Knowing that the Sun controls all in our solar system as far as light and day, heat and cold, seasons, tides, weather, etc. Still, when asked by God.... it obeys! How about us? I'm shamed by our Sun. LORD, please help me to be as obedient as the Sun and Moon are to You each day. Help us all dear LORD!
Have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
