Total Eclipse


Have you ever seen a child want to share with you something exciting they have learned or discovered?  That is how I felt with the Eclipse last week.  I was blessed to visit an area of total eclipse, and while it wasn’t exactly like the child’s example, it felt like God gave us a special light show last week.

Some described the eclipse as a “spiritual moment” as seen in this unexpected testimony. (http://www.wral.com/-science-illuminates-god-s-work-greg-fishel-recounts-2017-eclipse/16903371/). 

It is easy for me to get wrapped in the details, but I wonder if the knowledge God has given us to understand and predict the details somehow takes away from the AWESOME reality of an eclipse. 

  • I struggle to get to church on time, but science calculates when and where the next eclipse will occur as far out as the year 3000.  The timing of this eclipse could have been predicted 1000 years ago, yet it arrived not a moment early, not a second late.
  • I occasionally find it hard to get out of my car in the garage as I’ve parked poorly.  There is significant difference in the scale of my car into the garage and this eclipse.  We estimate the sun is 93 million miles away, yet the earth we live on, the moon, and the sun were all perfectly in place for this event.
  • God took the “show on the road” as it travelled about 1400 miles an hour across North America.  It makes our best holiday fireworks seem so small, doesn’t it?

Please read Job 37 as it talks about fearing God for his great works.   And then continue reading the 38th chapter, “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth”.   Where were you and I when He planned this eclipse?  Where will we be when the next full eclipse passes across the US, 99 years from now?  Psalms 90:12 says “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”.

 

It convinces, and convicts me of at least a few things:

  • God has it ALL under control.  I’ve got to be faithful and diligent in the situations he has placed me, but He is more than able to handle the rest.  Not only is fully able, but even though my affairs are small and insignificant, He takes note of every detail.
  • Where two or three are gathered in His name, He is in the midst.  Whether in a small or large group, I want to reverently kneel or stand as we pray, and encourage everyone to do the same.  The King of kings and Lord of lords is worthy of that reverence. 
  • The eclipse reveals an element of God’s precision.  He remembers that our frame is but of dust, but still expects the best you and I have.  Jesus says in Matthew 5:26, “Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing”.
