Set apart to rule and be ruled – Week 1 of 52


Genesis 1:16-18

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.


Point Of View (POV):

The very first time the word “Set” was used in God’s word was Genesis 1:17

Two lights on the same team, both with a common objective( to rule), but without a director dictating and navigating their every move. I was blown away when I looked up the meaning of “Set” the first time it’s  mentioned in God’s Word. It means:

  • Bestowed
  • Be entrusted to
  • Be assigned
  • To be put upon (as in a burden)
  • To Ascribe
  • To Charge
  • To Commit to
  • etc

There are no grey areas. Each light is both charged to rule, to be self governing, and to flow harmoniously. It sure seems as though, from the beginning of time, Orpheus was the intended operational model for humankind.

What are your thoughts? How do you see this playing out in your respective domain(s)?
