Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day His salvation. Declare His glory among the heathen; His marvelous works among all nations. –1 Chronicles 16:23-24
Have any of you seen a sunset recently? The other evening it was absolutely stunning in my area, and I was grateful to capture this photo.
Recently, a friend pointed out to me that a sunset is a perfect example of God's glory...His veiled glory. To think that the absolute glory of the sunset is caused by the atmosphere and clouds blocking out the sun! Imagine how great the unveiled glory of the sun would be if we could behold it! How much more is the glory of God? We cannot yet see the full blaze of God's glory, but we one day shall! If the beauty of the veiled sun is overwhelming, how much more the beauty of the veiled glory of God! Especially in the light of the fact that He has given us the opportunity to one day see it unveiled!
Sometimes it’s so easy to get wrapped up in everyday life...what tomorrow holds, the decision you have to make, or what snack you're going to eat next. I’m in those shoes too. But today, I want to encourage you to keep seeking the glory of the Lord...to know Him more! Step back from the things that clutter your mind and bask in the glory and awesomeness and beauty of our Lord! Meditate on His goodness to you and don’t get too busy that you neglect to worship your Savior each day of your life.. The glory of the Lord is seen in part from His Word, His beautiful creation, through you. Don’t forget that!
I can't wait to meet Him face to face! Lord, may we worship and serve You with all the breath and energy You've given us!
Your glory is worth it all! Psalm 115:1-3
