The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Welcome to Advent Day 3, and all I have to say is, God is good! Today marks one-week post op. I am still in a lot of pain, but I am getting stronger every single day. I get to see the doctor remove the stitches during my lunch hour, and I am not going to lie, I can’t wait to see the scar.
Today I wanted us to walk in the glory of how good and loving God is. We are going to prepare all month for his birth, and each day, I wanted us to highlight his character so that we can see him in our everyday. When we see him in our, every day, we work to become more like Him.
This verse says the heavens declare the flory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. It’s true. When you take a trip to the mountains, when you get out of the city, and when you look up, aren’t you in awe of the stars? He created them. Placed them in their exact spots across the universe.
Not only is God this big God, creator of the universe, but he is small and personal. Created you with your features.
When we look to nature, we can see His hand at work. The circle of life is what they call it, but to me, it’s like a circle of love. God made it, so the birds never have to worry about eating. If they don’t worry, why should we?
Romans 1:20 says
Forever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
That verse puts everything in perspective. Let’s go outside today, and for five minutes, get off your phone and either walk around the block or sit on a porch and drink a hot cup of coffee if it’s too cold where you live. Look at the majesty of our creator and think to yourself. If the stars light up the darkest of nights, imagine what our love can do in the life of others.
Father God, you are the creator of the universe, the most creative artist who ever lived. We admire your work, we proclaim your goodness, and we praise you that you have taken care of everything in your universe, and that includes me. If you placed the stars and you feed the birds, then remind me not to worry. We love you, we honor you, and it is in your Holy name that we pray, Amen!
