The Boundary Between Light and Darkness

He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing. He binds up the waters in his thick clouds, and the cloud is not split open under them. He covers the face of the full moon and spreads over it his cloud. He has inscribed a circle on the face of the waters at the boundary between light and darkness.
Job 26:7–10

The Boundary Between Light and Darkness
The horizon is often described in literature as a place of promise.  A destination waiting for some future date.  A place of possibilities and new starts.  Job describes it as “at the boundary between light and darkness.” It is that place where the sun comes up every day to chase away the night.  It is a reminder every morning that the Light triumphs over the darkness. Job praises God majesty and power, as He has control and dominion over His whole creation.  We do well to remember this.  Often times we look to the horizon, and it seems distant and unattainable. We see obstacles in our paths which can’t be overcome.  And when we see the sun fade into darkness the boundary between light and darkness becomes terrifying. This is the devil trying to convince us that the darkness is all that there is.  This is his attempt to keep us in the dark.  Yet Christ has overcome the darkness.  And His light breaks forth over the horizon as it broke forth from the tomb on Easter morning. Just as sure as we are that the sun will rise in the east, so we are that Christ has destroyed the darkness. “For my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.” (Luk2 2:30-32)
