“Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails.” (Psalm 111:3, NLT)
All around us are reminders of God's glory and majesty! "Everything He does reveals His glory and majesty". If we are not careful, it's easy to miss these reminders. We hurry from one place to the next, staying too busy to notice 'anything' He does, let alone 'everything' He does. This past week, while out making visits, I noticed the amazing color of these leaves and had to stop and snap a few photos. As I gazed at them through the lens of my camera, I spoke to the Lord, "Thank you God! I needed this reminder today.". It had been one of those days; I had spent most of the day ministering to hurting people, and I was feeling pretty drained. I packed my gear up and left, feeling completey refreshed, knowing that God was going to be glorified in the lives of those I had ministered to that day.
We are often too busy mourning the passing of one season to recognize the beauty of the new season. Too busy mourning what once was, to praise The Lord for what is.
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1–8, ESV)
Summer is past, fall is coming to a close, soon it will be winter, and then spring will explode all around you with new and amazing beauty. Take some time to see the glory and majesty of God all around you today.
