The Eclipse was awesome here in Lugoff, South Carolina. Though it did not get pitch black here it was still an amazing site. I was reminded of Psalm 19: 1-6 which says:
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.
The Heaven’s Declare the Glory of God. The planets, stars, and all other objects, gasses, even black holes sing multitudes of praise to their maker even though they are considered without sentient life. Their mere presence, movements, clashes, explosions, sweeps, and swoops all speak of the Glory of God’s name which is imprinted on everything known and unknown to man.
Even though the Psalmist says they have no sound, there are echoes that can be heard and we have them recorded so when we hear these we are hearing the voice God gave to them to prove His Majesty over all creation. The sun and moon today showed us their voice clearly as they pronounced they could remove the warmth as simply as running in front of one another.
Eclipses of the sun and moon are not once in a generation event as they actually happen quite frequently all over the world. It is God’s reminder to us that He is in charge and will do as He wishes with His creation.
America was blessed this day to see that event and the next one will be in 2024 over here. Be ready because it is a literal X marks the spot as both this one and the next cross at the New Madrid Fault.
Have a great rest of the day. Enjoy and be glad that God is everywhere
