The Mighty Hand Of God

While walking with the Lord at sunrise one recent morning, I was suddenly overwhelmed with awe at how the Lord arranged the clouds! Staring at the glistening dawn — I was amazed that the appearance was of a hand coming up out of the clouds with the rays of sunlight streaming upward throughout the sky.

The Lord has made all the beauty of His creation!

Before leaving for my early morning myPhotoWalk quiet time, I had read in God’s Word that “the whole earth is full of His glory” (Isaiah 6:3).

Of course, it was still dark outside when I read those words, but I stopped and lived in the truth of them at the moment. The sun began to rise just then and, as I was talking with the Lord about all of this, I just knew I had to go out and watch Him paint the sky uniquely in His majestic way.

Every morning is brand new experience. The splendor and eminence of His presence is everywhere in all that He has created. And so it is with living in His Word. His word never grows old and is never stale, but new every day.

In Isaiah 66:1-2 God speaks —

Thus says the LORD, “Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest? For My hand made all these things, thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD. “But to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.”
Isaiah 66:1-2

The Lord says in Isaiah 66:2 that you may experience something very special with Him when you are humble and contrite of spirit, and tremble at His word. The more you live in His Word, the more you will tremble in awe and reverence at all He says. You realize His Word is personal, spoken into your heart.

Stop everything today and live in a passage of Scripture. Underline your favorite words and phrases. Stop in wonder at God speaking to you in His Word. You will experience the unique and glorious adventure of the Lord looking — His eye upon you and His blessings of mercy and grace poured into your heart.

God bless you dear friend, as you continue on in the great adventure of knowing Him.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
