Revolution and Rotation

Year after year, comes summer and winter, cyclically, and seldom does one think about these seasons from a deeper perspective, than how it affects ones comfort, during those months. In like manner, the day and night, comes and goes in a period of 24 hours, cyclically, and most just view this in the motif of “life goes on”. However, Genesis 8:22 establishes that these seasons of summer and winter, and the day and night were promised by God for man, while the earth remains.

What causes these seasons? What causes the day and night cycle? The revolution of the earth around the sun causes the seasons and the rotation of the earth arounds its axis causes the day and night cycle. It is also interesting to note that the earth’s axis is inclined at an angle (23.5 degrees), causing the variations in the seasons and the length of the day and night.

Points to ponder:
Seasons in our life are only possible if our lives revolve around the Son of God, not standing erect on our own, but inclined (leaning) on Jesus Christ. When our lives are exposed to the Son of God, his light illuminates our as does the Sun at daytime and when it is not, our lives are like the dark of the night. How does your revolution and rotation look? While the earth, remains, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Genesis 8:22 (KJV)
22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
