"Whatever the Lord does" is beautiful.

Monday, July 25, 2016
Psalm 135:5-7  For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.

Psalm 19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.


The reminders are everywhere in the Psalms that God fills creation with vividly clear loving reminders of who He is.  The heavens, the skies, the earth and the seas are the perfect over flow of God’s own beauty.  It is God’s desire to captivate us and capture our attention as we look at His creation and then not just say “WOW”, but they are there for us to say “WOW, God is beautiful, amazing, powerful, creative, caring, glorious!”  God wants us to do more than just look at His creation.  He wants us to rejoice and enjoy Himself through His creative work.  As we move about this week let us be sensitive to what God is communicating to us through the heavens, the earth and the seas.  Practice recognizing how glorious God is through His creative works.  The questions that we discussed yesterday that help us see God as glorious through His creative works are as follows. Ask these questions with you filling in the blank as you watch God display His goodness, wisdom and power through the theater of His creation:

1) What is God’s purpose in making ________________?
2)  How has God expressed His character through __________________?

Father, Creator of the heavens, skies, earth and sea, You are glorious, powerful, beautiful.  Thank You for letting us be a part of Your creation and letting us enjoy Your beauty.  It is clear that You care about being known as a beautiful God through what You let us enjoy in creation.  I pray that we also, individually in our personal lives, would mirror Your beauty on this earth.  Let this place, our homes, our workplace, our journeys all be more beautiful as we mirror Your beauty by living a righteous and holy life like Your Son Jesus Christ.  Thank you for Jesus and His perfect example of Your beauty.
