God's word is nestled in everything great and small
Genesis 1:14-15 "Then God said, 'Let there be lights 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; and let them be for lights in the firmament; and it was so.'"
Psalm 147:4 "He counts the number of the stars; He calls them by name."
Isaiah 40:26 "Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; Not one is missing."
Job 38:31-32 "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in it's season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with it's cubs?"
*Belt of Truth
*Breastplate of Righteousness
*Shield of Faith
*Sword of the Spirit
In Orion's belt there are three bright stars. I do not think it coincidence that there are three bright stars in the belt, which would be the belt of truth. What is truth? John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.'" We have the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three in one, the Holy Trinity, which is truth.
If we simply open our eyes to God, believing all Christ has for us, we will be filled with the Holy Spirit. In staying focused on Christ, He will light our path. As He is our light, may we be a light to the world around us, shining brightly in a dim world.
Matthew 5:14-16 "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before me, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in Heaven."
