GOD IS SO AWESOME!
In the recent thunderstorms we have had here in the area in which I live, it is hard to not marvel at the glory of God shown in nature. We are not to worship nature but we can look at the beauty of the things around us and know this all did not happen by some scientific thing or tremendous bang. How can anyone not think God is the creator is beyond me.
Mountains, streams, whitewater, singing birds, eagles swooping down, seeds that produce food to nourish and sustain life. It is incredible. On a starry night gaze up into the night sky and see the twinkling. If you are flying in a plane just ponder the greatness and the vastness of creation as you gaze upon the clouds. God is indeed great. We are part of that great creation. Just the way he spoke all of this into existence. It is marvelous!
If something is weighing you down today why not stop for a moment and get outside and look up into the sky and think of the glory of God. We are so little compared to most things in His creation yet He cares for us and loves us so very much. It is nice to get away to a park if you can. By all means be safe but get to a place where noise is not a factor. Stop for a moment and just lift your hands in praise to God. He indeed is great and mighty!
Psalm 19:1(NIV) says 'the heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands.' John 1:1(NIV) says 'In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God.' Continue reading in the book of John. It will indeed lift your spirits if you are having a bad day.
PRAYER: Today Lord I once again say thanks for all the great things in your creation. You have provided this beautiful land for us to enjoy and care for. Thank you for meeting our needs and helping us each and every day. I love you Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
