Can you make it out? Oh I hope so. I hope this is not one of those ... "guess you had to be there moments". Look in the top of the tree...
Well, it struck me as I walked, in fact, I almost walked into a mailbox looking up so intently....everywhere we go, everything we see, everything in our lives are because of an awesome, holy, sovereign God.
Today I was reading Psalm 99 - 103. Can I share a little of what He impressed upon me? I'm not typing all the verses, just the key words, phrases that especially ministered to me.
Psalm 99: 5 - 9
Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His footstool;
Holy is He.
Moses, Aaron, Samuel.....they called upon the Lord (vs 6)
He spoke to them...(vs 7)
They kept His testimonies....(vs 7)
Oh Lord, our God, You answered them....(vs 8)
Oh to have that same level of confidence and intimacy....
For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.
Just in case we think we need a reason to worship Him..that verse offers us a very good one!
I will sing of lovingkindness and justice, to You, O Lord, I will sing praises!
Our goal for each day....are we singing and praising Him with the songs of our heart? In every season? Under every blue sky? Under every stormy one?
Psalm 102: 26-27
You, (God) endure....
You, (God) are the same
And Your years will not come to an end....
Psalm 103 (I love this entire Psalm)
Bless Him who heals, redeems, loves, changes not - I on the other hand am simply dust (vs 14) and He knows it yet He walks with me through all of my "dusty days". He withholds no good thing from His children....His lovingkindness is everlasting to everlasting....
His sovereignty rules over all.
What a faithful God, creative in all His works....and all of creation acknowledges Him....we must only cease our striving and simply know that He (alone) is God. Be blessed today, my fellow bags of dust! You are loved with the everlasting love of an everlasting God.
