“The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies declare the work of His hands.” Psalm 19:1
I love a beautiful sunset. A sunrise? Not so much….Not because it isn’t beautiful but just because I don’t like to get up early. But thinking on my Father’s glory, I wanted to watch the same great star that descended from my view yesterday begin its march across the sky today. The same One Who set the sun in the West yesterday, made it rise in the East today because He chose to.
“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
I know that He is a Father of love and compassion. I also know that He is One of righteousness and justification. I cannot receive part and not whole. I know that He is coming back soon, and I want to be found ready, doing His will, obeying, and pleasing my Father not just for my eternal reward that I don’t deserve but because I love Him and have a relationship with Him.
The One who created all of this created you and me and knows the number of hairs on our heads. Why would we not want to spend time with Him, learn of Him and from His glory, and worship and obey Him?
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Psalm 136:7-9
I encourage you to sit with the Father today if just for a minute to delight in His love for you. Know Him. I beg you to know Him. Sit with Him. Study His Word. Give all praise and glory to Him. Cry out to Him for He cares for you.
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Luke 12:7
