“Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart, in the company of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the Lord; they are studied by all who delight in them.” (Psalm 111:1-2)
The complexity of all that is around us and the wonder of creation are reflections of the Lord. He who made all things demonstrates His goodness in all that He has made. Delight in what the Lord has made and live in the promise of His grace and mercy. The faithful delight in the works of the Lord and marvel at His creation. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised.
Lord, I become wrapped up in daily life and do not see things as they are. Help me Lord to see the beauty that surrounds me each day. Guide me to be one who looks through what is ugly to see what You have created. May my heart be changed that I may live into the promise of hope that You give and know the unchanging character of Your presence and purpose in all things.
Lord Jesus, Word made flesh, help me now and always to see the truth You have revealed. The world gets wrapped up in immediacy and everything is a crisis. Help me to know that Your salvation is complete and that all things are in Your hands. Help me to trust what You have done that in freedom I may live each day knowing Your goodness and mercy and live for the Father’s glory. Amen.
