This morning, as I drove to work it was pitch dark. It was the wee hours of the morning, I was working to get ahead before the upcoming event here in my city. As I drove, a quote I read recently came to mind. The quote said, ‘great change is usually preceded by chaos.’
As this quote came to mind I thought ‘it couldn’t be truer in this situation.’
For several days, it has felt chaotic in my city. Everyone running around trying to get ready for this event. What even am I speaking of? The solar eclipse.
It is a phenomenal natural event. I totally agree, but as I thought of it, I thought of the book of Genesis. To me, it is not only a natural event, it is a spiritual event as well.
Genesis 1:1-2 says; In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
The earth was without form and void. One translation says, the earth was chaotic. There was no order.
God brought order and light. God dispelled the chaos.
Today, as I think about the upcoming solar eclipse, I think of Genesis 1:14; Then God said, Let there be light in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons and for days and years.
God placed the sun and moon in place and He put them there for a purpose…for SIGNS, for SEASONS and for days and years.
I agree with many of the prophetic voices in our day, this solar eclipse is for a sign. This is all God. He is the only one who controls the sun and moon and He is saying something with this solar eclipse, He is speaking, may we all hear His voice loud and clear!
I believe this solar eclipse is not only a sign but I also believe it is heralding a new season in God. All we have to do is read our Bible to see this truth. Each month when the moon changes, the Jewish calendar changes and we step into a new season, a new month with a new meaning and a new symbolic purpose.
For this reason, with the eclipse, I do believe God is speaking to us and I believe all the chaos of the upcoming eclipse will precede great change…a literal changing of the seasons.
I have heard some say it is heralding the seven years of plenty, I pray that is so. If it is, prepare your heart and spend those seven years preparing for the next seven.
Our Bible is a clear and precise roadmap, leading us in the way we should go, there is nothing we have need of that cannot be found in His word. It is there we find our answers and our direction. Be sure to stay in His word through this new season.
Monday, as the solar eclipse moves across the earth, pray that we all move with God in His timing and His direction, in His season and His plan. That is my prayer for all of us, as we continue to walk in His goodness on a daily basis.
And today, if you have chaos in your life, remember, chaos often precedes great change. Rejoice in the great change that is upon you – knowing your God can eliminate the chaos as you continue to trust in Him.
Prayer for today: Father, I thank you for this word today, may I always walk in your path and your way. Teach me to perceive your signs in the heavens as your word says, give me understanding of your ways. This I ask in Jesus name. Amen.
