April 2, Today’s thought – The Heavens Declare

BigEarth

Good Morning

I remember knowing kids whose fathers were quite successful.
One was a judge. The other a prominent physician.
I attended church with the son of the mayor.
“My father has an office at the courthouse,” he could claim.
Guess what you can claim?
“My Father rules the universe!””

Scripture says,

“The heavens declare the glory of God and the skies announce what his hands have made.” Psalm 19:1

Nature is God’s workshop.
The sky is his resume.
You want to know who God is?
See what he has done.
You want to know his power?
Take a look at his creation.

How vital that we pray,
armed with the knowledge that God is in heaven.
Pray with any lesser conviction
and your prayers are timid, shallow, and hollow.
But spend some time walking in the workshop of the heavens.
Seeing what God has done—
seeing what your Father has done
and watch how your prayers are energized!

Max Lucado~~The Great House of God

This is my Father’s world,
and to my listening ears
all nature sings, and round me rings
the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world:
I rest me in the thought
of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
his hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world.
O let me ne’er forget
that though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world:
why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad!
Maltbie D. Babcock

Scan the heavens . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
