The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1
Did you know the earth makes light? The earth’s magnetic poles and radiation from the sun team up to create the phenomena known as the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. The sun’s radiation creates charged ions in the atmosphere. When the charged ions release an electron, they also release light. The Northern lights are generally seen only in the polar regions of earth. However, if atmospheric conditions are right, they can be seen as far south as the mid-latitudes. (There are also Southern Lights, called Aurora Australis.) The ancients developed many myths and legends surrounding the Aurora Borealis, but today we understand these displays are more proof of God’s incredible creativity and master plan.
Numerous verses tell us about the God’s incredible creation:
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. Genesis 2:1
God has set the rhythm of the days and seasons, and they will not be changed. Genesis 8:22
God causes the things necessary for life to be sustained. Psalm 104:14-21
The animals know what the Lord has done. Job 12:7-9
When was the last time you were amazed at God’s creativity? Take a few minutes to enjoy the beauty God has given us.
Walk In His Light,
