This is what the Lord says:
“Heaven is My throne,
and the earth is My footstool.
Could you build Me a temple as good as that?
Could you build Me such a resting place?
My hands have made both heaven and earth;
they and everything in them are mine.
I, the Lord, have spoken!
“I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts,
who tremble at My word.
Walking along the beach, I am struck many times by the magnificence of the patterns in the sand created by the tide.
As the water approaches and then recedes, it forms a mathematical pattern of its own atop the sculpted sand.
Contemplating its beauty and perfection, I am drawn to watch its continuous rhythm.
God has made Heaven and Earth. He made the water and commanded it to create waves. He made the sand and commanded it to rest in patterns.
Our God is an awesome God!
