“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. Day to-day pours out speech, and night to-night reveals knowledge.“ (1)
“I Stand in Awe”, are but short and few words given to express my highest wonder and praise to Almighty God. It is He who created the magnificence of the universe, and put His beauty on display.
One peculiar evening my family and I were able to witness the spectacular beauty of God’s world. Here we stood together on our daughter’s balcony, in Colorado, looking far into the dark southern sky. With awe we shared the wonder of God’s creation, but at the same time God was sweetly speaking into my heart. Speaking of His glory and wisdom!
As I looked deep into the heavens, bouncing off the backdrop of a darken sky was a bright light shining from the fullness of the moon’s reflection. There set the moon beaming behind clouds lined by its illumination. From a distance I stood in silence captured by crackles of lightning flashing between the clouds. What a majestic sight which merits my highest praise to God’s greatness. It is the Eternal God who marked off the heavens and calculated the moon, sun, and number of stars which He calls by name. (2)
God’s creation of nature; the wonders of the skies, the sunrises, and the sunsets are put on display for our pleasures and His glory. These blessings, and so many more, ought to heighten our adoration and extol Jesus supremely as eminent Lord. Mind boggling…there is something even more astounding to me. This awesome God, who created the world, takes thought of you and me. Truly, isn’t that amazing?
“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars which You have ordained, what is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You visit him?” (3)
God is thinking of you right now. He loves you more than you could imagine. Take the time to thank Him today.
Jesus, You are beautiful in every way. Your work is majestic, and perfect and Your ways are holy. I praise You for who You are, the living God…who takes thought of me. I praise Your sweet name Jesus…the sweetest name I know. Amen!
