Many times in life we take for granted the beauty of God's creation that
surrounds us and focus more on the trials in our life. We are to enjoy
what God has made available to us and not allow ourselves to become overly
stressed by situations that come before us. When trying times come our
way, we need only to look to the heavens above to see the perfected work of
the sun, moon and stars to remind us of God's immeasurable wisdom and care
for detail. The Bible tells us that God numbers the stars and calls them
all by name. It has been estimated that there are more than 100 billion
stars in our solar system alone and if we know that God cared enough to
name each one of those stars, then how much more valuable are we in His
sight? Be encouraged to enjoy your life as best as you can and allow the
beauty that surrounds you to penetrate your heart and fill you with His Joy
that is unspeakable. (Psalm 139:1-6) (Nehemiah 9:6) (Psalm 147:3-5)
I hope you are encouraged by today's message to focus more on God's
creation to both appreciate and enjoy what He has made available to you.
CAN YOU SEE GOD?
A small boy once approached his slightly older sister with a question about
God. "Susie, can anybody ever really see God?" he asked.
Busy with other things, Susie curtly replied: "No, of course not silly.
God is so far up in heaven that nobody can see Him."
Time passed, but his question still lingered so he approached his mom:
"Mom, can anybody ever really see God?" "No, not really," she gently said.
"God is a spirit and He dwells in our hearts, but we can never really see Him."
Somewhat satisfied but still wondering, the youngster went on his way.
Not long afterwards, his saintly old grandfather took the little boy on a
They were having a great time together. The sun was beginning to set with
unusual splendor and the grandfather stared silently at the exquisite
beauty unfolding before them.
On seeing the face of his grandfather reflecting such deep peace and
contentment, the little boy thought for a moment and finally spoke
hesitatingly: "Granddad, I--I-- wasn't going to ask anybody else, but I
wonder if you can tell me the answer to something I've been wondering about
a long time. Can anybody--can anybody ever really see God?"
The old man did not even turn his head. A long moment slipped by before
he finally answered. "Son," he quietly said. "It's getting so I can't see
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Nehemiah 9:6 "Thou, even Thou, art LORD alone; Thou hast made heaven, the
heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are
therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and Thou preservest them all;
and the host of heaven worshippeth Thee."
Psalm 16:8-11 "I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my
right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory
rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For Thou wilt not leave my
soul in hell; neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in Thy presence is fulness of joy; at
Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."
Psalm 147:3-5 "He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite."
Psalm 118:5-9 "I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me,
and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear:
what can man do unto me? The LORD taketh my part with them that help me:
therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to
trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in
the LORD than to put confidence in princes."
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
