“To Him who made the heavens with skill, for His lovingkindness is everlasting; To Him who spread out the earth above the waters, for His lovingkindness is everlasting;” (Psalm 136:5-6)

Step back and think about looking at all of creation as a whole.  The magnitude of what God has created is in your view.  See the intricacy of what has been created.  Be aware that we know very little of the whole, what skill and intelligence is involved.  Understand that our Triune God made what He made out of love.  He loves that which He has made.  In love He knit the universe together.

Lord, there are those around me who think they know.  They know much more than me, but they know a very little of the whole.  Let me not come to you in pride, but with awe and wonder at all that You have made.  Guide me in the goodness of Your grace to see more clearly the truth of Your love which You have for all that You have made.  Guide me through love to look at the world You made and praise You for it.

Lord Jesus, You are in the love relationship which is Trinity and You have come to invite those who believe to join in.  Guide me, Lord Jesus, to come on Your terms and in Your way to live into the life for which I have been created.  Lead me, Lord, in the way of truth that I may grow into Your likeness.  May I be guided by Your Spirit this day to walk in the way You have taught me, doing what is pleasing in the Father’s sight. Amen.
