When I Look

When I look at Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which You have set in place,
 what is man that You are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that You care for him?

–Psalm 8:3-4

 

When I left the grocery store, it was beginning to get dark.

The traffic was busy on the two lane highway toward home.

As I looked at the sky in front of me, I realized how beautiful it was.

Passing my street and driving on a little farther down the road to a clearing, I stopped the car and took a picture.

Venus was white and blazing above a creamy glow of pale orange and yellow.

When I look at the sky like this, I see the mighty work of God.

He Split the Rocks

He split the rocks in the wilderness

And gave them abundant drink like the ocean depths.

—Psalm 78:15

 

Miracles.

They happened before.

They still happen…

God split rocks and provided water for His people in the wilderness long ago.

God hasn’t changed.

His power remains constant.

He is able to do the miraculous in our lives, too.

Do you trust Him today?

Your Creatures

I photographed the most magnificent bird today.

The mix of colors displayed in his sleek feathers was captivating.

God has made such beauty in our world!

 

How many are Your works, LORD! In wisdom You made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures.

—Psalm 104:24

Declare His Glory

There is a small market near my son’s apartment in a nearby town.

Quaint and eclectic, it is a delightful place to visit.

Out in front of the store, a cart with flowers for sale brightens the corner.

As each plant is sold, beauty goes out from that place and spreads to another.

Psalm 96:3 reads,

“Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the peoples!”

As we learn of God’s marvelous works and experience His glory, we then may go out and share what we have found to others.

We declare our faith and what God has done to those we are in contact with.

Each time we tell of God’s great love and forgiveness, we spread the beauty of the gospel.
