“All the earth will worship You, and will sing praises to You; they will sing praises to Your name.” Come and see the works of God, who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.” (Psalm 66:4-5)
Stop listening to the noise of the world and look around. What do you see? Is not the earth and all that is in it marvelous and wondrous? Do you not see the intricacy and beauty all around? What then shall be said to those who cannot see but make noise? His deeds are above our ability to comprehend just as the beauty that surrounds us. Marvel at the Lord and His handiwork.
Lord, I give in to all the talk that goes on around me but do not marvel at the things before me. Guide me, O Lord, into Thy ways that I would see Your work and marvel at all that You have done. Lead my eyes to see and my ears to hear that I may praise You as one of Your own creations. You Lord are the Creator of the universe and all things are in Your hands. Guide me in Your providence.
Lord Jesus, You walked humbly among us. The disciples marveled that even the seas would obey You. Yet You are the One who created all things and it should have been no marvel. Let me marvel instead that You would walk humbly with us to lead us to the Father. Let me marvel at the work You have accomplished and praise You now and always. You are the Lord of Salvation and the One who leads. Amen.
