“The Mighty One, God, the Lord, has spoken, and summoned the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth.” (Psalm 50:1-2)
Look around and what do you see? All around you is splendor and beauty. Is this an accident? Is this mere chance? The fool says it is. There is the hand of the Lord in all that you see. Look plainly and see the magnificence of the Lord’s handiwork. Be guided by the Holy Spirt and understand more fully the author of all that exists. Know the Lord and come to know His handiwork.
Lord, the skeptics are all around. They deride and jeer, mock and make much ado about nothing. Help me move beyond this foolishness to come into Your presence and walk humbly with You, the One who made all things. Lead me O Lord that I may follow You wherever You would take me. Help me see in You the hope of glory and the way of living life now and forever.
Lord Jesus, God who took on flesh, You have come to lead the way of glory for all those who would follow where You lead. Guide me O Lord today to walk humbly in Your ways. Teach me O Lord to follow You wherever You would lead me. May I be faithful to the calling You have given me knowing that only in You is there hope and glory now and for all time and eternity. Amen.
