Gen. 1:14, 15 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Signs?  In the Sky?  Topics:  2 at end.

Here is a different way to say it:  “And God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth. And it was so.”  DARBY  (Read this scripture and more at

We observe that the sun and the moon divide between daytime and nighttime.  We appreciate all that the lights in the heavens do for us, the sun working its effect on plants and animals; the moon providing extra-beautiful waters when poised above a lake or sea.  But what is this about these lights being for signs?  Well – no deep supernatural
discussion here – just a thought that comes to mind.

In a way, all the workings of the heavens and planet Earth are signs unto us.  Even Job, for all of his endurance of suffering, didn’t understand the totality of God’s creative genius and ways (Job 38-42).  God had to point out to Him that the creation was far above Job’s understanding, with the effect of humbling Job’s heart and attitude.  So it is with us.  When we see the moon and sun “come and go” in their courses in the sky, we know that we are seeing a sign that God is so much higher than we are, so greatly elevated.  We see these higher thoughts and ways in our lives displayed also, signs of His care.

His elevated stature knows the paths that unborn babies will take in their future.  He can see their lives from beginning to end; he can see how His power will show forth in their lives.  If they are allowed to live.  If we stand for them to make differences.  Lord, help us to be renewed in our appreciation of you, as we see signs in our natural world, as we see signs in our lives, and as newborns (each and every one conceived) see signs in their lives of your care and purposes:  and they turn to you and love you.

Topics:  Pray for renewed appreciation of our God who gives us many signs of His power
