Day 10; the light comes in spreading from one spot all across the landscape.
The sun is majestic on it’s own but there’s something about the way it’s light spreads across the mountains that takes my breath away. The glow is SPREADING reaching up, gathering from side to side, stretching down celebrating the far off purple-blue mountains along with each individual blade of grass.
…the Creator of the Heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to it’s people, and life to those who walk in it… I will take hold of your hand. Isaiah 42:5-6
There’s power in the reach of light and how it spreads. The same can be said of the power of God but there’s more to His reach. God spreads his arms out to also pull you in and take you by your hand.
Our God spreads his arms to create scenes like this. And he pulls us close in comfort and protection.
David Guzik digs deeper into the verse from Isaiah and the idea of spreading: “First look up, because He created the heavens and stretched them out. Then look down, because He spread forth the earth and that which comes from it. Then look in a mirror, because He gives breath to the people on it. The God who did such great things can fulfill His promises about YOU.”
