God’s hand is so clearly evident in all of creation. I see His power and creative nature all around me.
When I come across a beautiful sky — if I am so lucky to have a camera near — I have to snap a picture of it. God can do such amazing things with the sky. It reminds me just how AWESOME our God is!
It’s like God is saying to us, “I’m still here.” “I haven’t lost my creative power… You saw it at work at the beginning of time, when I created the Heavens and the Earth.” “I’m the same God; Yesterday. Today. And Forever.”
There is a quote in the movie “The Color Purple” (and I will paraphrase) where one of the lead characters says she thinks God is not pleased when we walk past the color purple in a field and not notice it. Well, since purple is my favorite color, I certainly can never walk past anything purple and not notice it. Nor, can I walk past a beautiful sky without noticing it.
Just today, I was driving and couldn’t help but notice the beginnings of a beautiful sunset. So I grabbed my phone, and while trying to keep one hand on the steering wheel, I snapped pictures of the sky. The people in the cars around me must have thought I was crazy. But I didn’t care — let them look — God put that sunset there for me to enjoy on my drive home. Hallelujah!!
It is important that we slow down and take notice of God’s handiwork all around us. It pleases Him when we appreciate Him for the things He’s done, and is doing, in our lives.
CELEBRATE GOD for His creative power because He’s worthy to be PRAISED!!
