His Beauty Fills The Whole Earth

“All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name. Selah” Psalm 66:4 (ESV)

It was the most beautiful moon ever. Staring out my kitchen window early morning eyes were captivated by the biggest, brightest moon in the darkest sky. Couldn’t believe it. Right before my eyes, the beauty of God’s handiwork greeted me. And if that wasn’t enough, I witnessed the glorious melting of orange, yellow and red as the sun began to rise. Speechless….and I’ve only been out of bed for a few moments. Day and night bookending the beginning and the end depending on where my gaze landed.

Great way to start my morning lost in His beauty and glory. Guarantee you that’s not my norm. Usually my eyes are barely awake when my feet hit the floor. Most likely, my thoughts are zooming through what I have to get done today. And all the while I’m immersed in my own little world…..God is displaying His splendor. Just because we don’t take time to soak it in doesn’t mean His glory isn’t surrounding us.

Wonder what I miss when I fail to recognize His handiwork encircling me? Dare I guess that my praise is weak when my mind is bent towards other things. Definitely admit my consumption with “my” world overshadows the incredibleness of One who created all things.

Simple cure for those of us who get lost in the craziness of this life – choose to notice….choose to praise…choose to remember our God. Reflect on His goodness. Drink deep of His character. Admire His greatness unfolding right before our eyes. Deliberately savor those moments when splendor overtakes us…bow in awe and wonder at the work of His hands. Praise the very essence of His grace, love and mercy. Cherish God’s daily protection. Worship His sovereignty and kindness. Saturate our minds with His truth…meditate daily on His words and not our own thoughts. Lean in close to hear His still small voice leading and guiding us each step of the way. Search deep, seek long and discover the beauty of falling in love with One who never leaves us or forsakes us.

Can’t think of a better way to avoid being consumed with our “own” little world than to keep our gaze zeroed in on our awesome God.

“Father, there is none like You; nothing else even comes close to the glory and splendor of who You are.”

For His Glory
