It appeared as a luminescent bowling ball rolling briskly across the night sky. The rapid speed caused me to feel lightheaded from the illusion of motion. My brain tried to understand how the moon could be moving so quickly.

Then I changed my focus.

Clouds illuminated by the moonbeams unfurled themselves across the  heavens painted with charcoal. The movement was in the clouds – layers and layers of clouds as a cold front roared across the mountains. 

I stood mesmerized.

The moon stood still.

Of course, I knew in my knower that the moon wasn’t moving, but the perception when I first looked up was that the moon was soaring away from me. The reality was that the storm clouds were approaching speedily and with imminent threat, but the moon remained steadfast. Sure. Constant.

God is like that when our lives are tumbling out of control.

“For He is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end. He delivers and rescues, and He works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth…” ~ Daniel 6:26-27

Regardless of our perception, the Lord is steadfast. He is immovable. Unchangeable. Unstoppable.

He is God alone.
