What Does “Roll Upon Wings” Mean?

“The earth rolls upon her wings, and the sun giveth his light by day, and the moon giveth her light by night, and the stars also give their light, as they roll upon their wings in their glory, in the midst of the power of God.
Unto what shall I liken these kingdoms, that ye may understand?
Behold, all these are kingdoms, and any man who hath seen any or the least of these hath seen God moving in his majesty and power.
I say unto you, he hath seen him; nevertheless, he who came unto his own was not comprehended.
The light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not; nevertheless, the day shall come when you shall comprehend even God, being quickened in him and by him.
Then shall ye know that ye have seen me, that I am, and that I am the true light that is in you, and that you are in me; otherwise ye could not abound.”

These are profound descriptions of how the works of God are there for us to see, but we may not see them.

This phrase reminds me to witness the creations of God around me, as well as to bear witness of them. That is what true art is for: to direct our attention to seeing the beauty of God’s work and to feel that movement of his Spirit in our souls.
