To Take in His Glory

The heavens tell about the glory of God. The skies announce what His hands have made. Each new day tells more of the story, and each night reveals more and more about God’s power. – (Psalm 19:1-2, ERV)

 

It is easy to lose sight of this if we get too caught up in all that is happening in the world around us. We need not look far to observe horror and tragedy that make us question why. However, even in the midst of the full fury of hell being unleashed, there come stories of grace, protection, and overcoming – despite the dismal displays that occur. In the stillness of our own quiet spaces, we are reminded of the truth of who God is, and how much bigger He is than all that happens around us. Regardless of the wreck that things become, we need only look up to be reminded how the God who made the skies and the stars, the earth and the sea, is able to hold and help me. May we listen for the stories of God’s power, and look around us to see the majesty of His glory on earth. Despite the darkness that is displayed, God is good, and far greater than the tragedies intended to strike fear in our hearts.

 

We need only look,Hope in What is Unseen

just open our eyes;

take in the deep blue,

of sea and the skies.

For each brand new day,

reveals more and more;

the power of God,

from mountains to shore.

His story is told,

through work of His hand;

as His grace and peace,

are made known to man.

Let every heart,

embrace what is true;

all glory to God,

His love makes us new.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that the heavens declare Your glory, and the skies announce what You have made. Thank You that each new day brings greater revelation of the truth of who You are and what You have done for us. Thank You that despite what goes on around us, You are far greater than anything that we see. Forgive us for become fearful or overwhelmed by all that we observe happening around us. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would allow our hearts to give You control, and know that though we see tragedy and terrible things, You are still good, and You can turn tragedies into triumphs. Show us how to love the lost, lonely and the hurting in a way that helps restore wholeness. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we stand in awe of Your glory and listen intently to Your story, as it unfolds before us. Amen.
