Today the moon’s shadow will pass directly in front of the sun casting a shadow on Earth. Even though the sun will remain in the same position God placed it, the sun will appear as if it has moved when darkness blankets the Earth. People are excited; some have even traveled long distances just to be a part of this phenomenal bit of history—a total solar eclipse.
No wants to be a part of a “Son” eclipse.
We can parallel this natural manifestation to our lives spiritually when we experience the silence of heaven. When Jesus was on the cross, He felt the separation when He cried out:
. . . Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Matthew 27:46)
David cried in distress in Psalm 27:1, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?”
If Jesus and David felt this disconnection, surely we will encounter the same when we go through dark times. Nonetheless, those are the times when our faith is tested.
Do we believe the Word or shadows?
The good news is there is not a shadow that the enemy can cast that will hide us from Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent. The deceiver can only maneuver shadows; he can’t move the Son. The Son never moves. God will never leave nor forsake us. (Genesis 28:15; Hebrews 13:5)
