In Psalms 19, it begins “The heavens declare the glory of GOD; and the firmament shows His handiwork”. Then later in verse 4, the Psalmist continues, “In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber…”Verse 5 continues, “Its rising is from one end of heaven and its circuit to the other end.”
Almost every major religion has some connection to the worship of the sun. The ancient pagans worshipped the sun and had a special celebration around the Winter Solstice. Saturnalia was a time to celebrate the return of the sun. Now the Psalmist was clear in his knowledge of who had put the sun in its circuit.
We can love the sunrise and the beauty of the creation of a new day, and we can remember who spoke it into existence. The best is yet to come as we increase our knowledge of God.
