Merciful Mondays: The Beauty of the Earth Glorifies God

Sometimes when I look out the window on a stormy day I am simply captivated. I think about the fact that the Earth is rotating and I don’t even feel it. I think about the fact that the clouds are moving, water is falling, lightning is flashing, and flowers are growing simultaneously. All of these things working in conjunction in order for the Earth and the people to be sustained.

Then I think about the fact that God created all of these things (Genesis 1:1- In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth...) Even the beauty of the Earth attests to the glory of God (Imagine what Heaven will be like!) It really is a thought that keeps me in awe time and time again. It gets to the point where it is so mind boggling that I give up on trying to understand.

Job chapter 36 speaks a little bit about this. It says:

“Look, God is greater than we can understand.
    His years cannot be counted.
27 He draws up the water vapor
    and then distills it into rain.
28 The rain pours down from the clouds,
    and everyone benefits.
29 Who can understand the spreading of the clouds
    and the thunder that rolls forth from heaven?
30 See how he spreads the lightning around him
    and how it lights up the depths of the sea.
31 By these mighty acts he nourishes the people,
    giving them food in abundance.
32 He fills his hands with lightning bolts
    and hurls each at its target.
33 The thunder announces his presence;
    the storm announces his indignant anger.”

Next time you want to complain because of the weather, make a conscious effort not to. Even if the rain is messing up your hair (like it usually does to mine  L) or the humidity it making you sweat (again guilty), don’t complain! Because at the end of the day, only God has the power to change it and he knows what he’s doing! It has to rain some time or another in order for life to go on. So every day, let’s try to be thankful for THAT day and accept the fact that “God is greater than we understand”. Let's find beauty even in the "bad" days. 

Today’s Challenge: God’s power is truly indescribable so take a moment to look at God’s handiwork today. Walk a little slower to your car as you look up at the sky. Take a moment to thank God because in all of his power, he alone created Heaven and Earth. He is worthy of our thanks.
Really listen to the words of this song!

Merciful Mondays: Jael
For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon you or destroy you or forget the solemn covenant he made with your ancestors.” Deuteronomy 4:31
