How Wonderful!

The leaves are changing on the tree in my backyard already. Green is becoming golden yellow, blazing orange and flaming red. I really love all the seasons that we get around here and fall seems like a return to the riot of colors that we get in spring.

Creation sure is wonderful in its color and variety! God has made it to be enjoyed and we should enjoy it but give glory to the one who made it. All of creation praises the creator – let’s join with them!

Praise the Lord from the earth, all sea monsters and ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and cloud, stormy wind that executes his command, mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, creatures that crawl and flying birds, kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all judges of the earth, young men as well as young women, old and young together.

Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted. His majesty covers heaven and earth. — Psalms 148:7-13 (CSB)

As you see the wonder, beauty and majesty of creation let is awe you just a little. The spectacle of nature is just a tiny view on our vast and overwhelming God. He is deeper than the ocean depths, higher than the furthest stars, faster than a beam of light and more loving than you can possibly imagine.

He created you and I. He knows us at an atomic level yet he still paid the ultimate price so that we could be freed from our sin to enjoy him.

Look at the wonders of the world around you and be awed by the God who created that for you!

How marvelous, how wonderful, Is my Savior’s love for me…
