Genesis 8:22 Thought/Prayer:  Equinox.  Topics:  2 at end.

“While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”  (AKJV)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

An equinox approaches, those times each year (twice) that the dark and the light are equal for just a fragment, relatively speaking, of time.  It’s approximately 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of nighttime.  For some folks, it is a time for consideration of the clockwork of our universe . . . and Earth within it.  For some the longer days are greatly anticipated; for some the longer nights are greatly anticipated.  But however a person considers it:  It happens.  Twice.  Every year.

The two equinoxes.  Can we find a bit of something to parallel in the life of a Christian?  Maybe, although it may be somewhat of a stretch.

No, consider that in our world, beyond the physical equinox of day and night, there is the consideration of spiritual day and night.  Could we say that before we claim Jesus Christ the crucified as our Savior, we were walking in the dark?  We might picture it as being on the dark ½ of the equinox.

But then we claim Christ as our own, and we can picture it as transferring over to the light ½ of the equinox. 

But there is one more consideration.  Before meeting Christ, we were more than ½ in the dark:  We were hugely dark.  But there was a struggle going on.  It could be pictured as equal light and equal dark in a battle.  Maybe the battle began unequally, as we were in a great amount of darkness.  But when the Lord came, the dark could not comprehend the light he brought.  John 1:4,5, speaking of Christ:  “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

The word “comprehended”:  There are probably many explanations of this word in the translations where this term is used instead of “overcome” or “put it out” or “extinguished.”  But could it not be that, truly:  Darkness cannot understand light.  The slightest speck of light undoes darkness.

So once the rays of Jesus’ light hit the equinox of our lives, no more battle.  Light won.  Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, won (John 8:12).  Lord, help us to lead others out of their darkness into Christ’s overcoming light.  Perhaps lead this to happen through circumstances of LIFE and death in a family, according to Your will.

Topics:  Pray for Christ’s light to shine so intensely on those who do not know You and who are struggling with LIFE decisions . . . that they will be enlightened into salvation through Him. 
The conscience of our nation
