Look Up!

Psalm 19, 2018

Look up and see how awesome our God is!

The never-ending skies above us announce the power and the glory of our Ceator!

Everyday the skies teach me more about you, Father God.  Night after night, they reveal your majesty.  The skies don’t use words but their message stretches out over the whole earth.  Everyone on this planet can know you, Creator God, just by looking up.

You command the sun to rise each day on one horizon and then circle above us until its sets on the other.  People of all nations everywhere feel its warmth.

You reveal your truth to me in your Word and it refreshes my soul by bringing my thinking back in line with your’s.  I can’t trust what people around me say but I can always trust what you say.

When I follow your guidance, God, you make me wise.  Choosing to do what is right brings joy to my heart.

Your Word lights my path.  I will love and respect you forever!

Your Word is my firm foundation.  Thank you for teaching me what is right, Father.  Your Word is more valuable than money and it proves that you only want the best for me.

You warn me of dangers ahead and your Spirit convicts my spirit when I have done something wrong.  Forgive me, Father.  Keep my eyes focused on you so I can avoid bad choices and the evil which presses in all around me.

May my words and my thoughts please you, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Look UP!

He is omnipotent.

He is the creator of all things.

He is the only uncreated One.

He is more glorious than our eyes can envision.July 18 b 2015 look up 1

He is perfect.

In Isaiah 55, God tells us “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.”

For some people, the fact that they can’t totally understand God stops them from taking the next step into a relationship with him.  But I’m glad I can’t understand everything about God.  We only have 3.5 pound brains.  If we could understand everything about God, he wouldn’t be God.

The fact that we discuss and we wonder and we debate and we change our minds about God is reassuring to me.  Because he is bigger than anything we can imagine.

He is unfathomable.

And that makes him Holy, Holy, Holy God!

God tells us ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’

Look up!

Where does the sky stop?

Our God is a huge, fantastic God who has chosen, for some reason, to have a personal relationship with us…

with me….

with you.

God tells us, “My word that goes out from my mouth; it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”July 18 2 2015 look up

Do you  feel it?

As we read and meditate on God’s word, the power of the Holy Spirit grows within us.  He interprets these words for us so we can better understand God.  As we come to know God better, we can hear him and follow him more closely.  As we diligently read and memorize and cherish God’s word to us, more of God’s wisdom becomes etched upon our hearts, renewing our minds and fulfilling the purpose God had went he said them.

So look up!  A huge and holy God is reaching out his hand full of love and grace and truth.

Thank you, Abba Father, for how incomprehensible you are!  We don’t need to understand everything about you because you are God, we are not.  We believe that your son, Jesus, paid the price for our sins so that, when we accept his grace, we are saved from being separated from you forever by our sin and rebellion.  Now we are in an eternal relationship with you which has already started and will continue on after we leave this earth.  We love you!  In the redeeming name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
