Studying the Sun

We all enjoy the sunlight God put in place for us. Nasa, (2021) says the Parker Solar Probe, launched in 2018, is healthy and its systems are operating normally. The spacecraft completed its ninth solar encounter on August 15, 2021, at closest approach coming within 10.4 million kilometers of the Sun’s surface. It is hoped that the probe will reach about 8.9 million km’s soon, for scientists to have a closer look.

Yet one looks at creation Genesis 1:3-5 Then God commanded, “Let there be light”—and light appeared. God was pleased with what he saw. Then he separated the light from the darkness, and he named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night.” Evening passed and morning came—that was the first day.

Imagine God shifting planets toward the sun, or the sun created by God’s word, and the positioning of the sun and its planets in space? Today we live and experience life because of light and heat generated by God’s light in the far away sky, giving us daylight and night lights with the moon and stars. God’s efficiency and favour of the planet earth gives us, humans, the life, and resources required to keep living. If God can do this, how small our problems must be for Him to solve. So then if sunlight is possible, the solutions to one’s problems big or small, are as probable.

Dear Father, I ask you to turn my night into day, to change what I cannot, and to make me calm about life and its problems. As I sing How Great is our God, I believe it, know it and experience it moment by moment. I thank you for each ray of sunlight In Jesus name, Amen. Dr Cliff Ferguson – Shalom Centurion
