Viewed in daylight, this picture shows patterns which are somewhat boring and repetitive. This is like the promise God gave to Abraham and Sarah of having a son and descendants despite infertility. Viewed in daylight, this is like the long hard years of waiting for a promise to be fulfilled, but having no evidence in sight. UV light reveals a depth previously unseen- like God’s faithfulness and working behind the scenes. Then, glowing in the dark are the stars of the night sky –fulfilment of a promise.
“look up at the sky and count the stars if you can- if indeed you can count them…So shall your offspring be.” (Genesis 15:5, NIV)
