God's Handiwork


The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

Psalm 19:1



Winter or Summer, every morning when I open the door on my house to go for an early morning walk, I am instantly blessed, and lift my voice in prayer. Daily nature displays the truth, goodness, and beauty of the One who brought it into being. Every day, nature offers a new and fresh declaration of God’s glory. Now, the question I want to ask you is this: Do you see God through that beauty, or do you merely glance at it and shrug it off in indifference?


All nature declares the beauty of the One who made it. Our response can be worship, adoration, and thanksgiving—for the radiance of a sunflower, the splendour of a morning sunrise, the symmetry of one particular tree.


Author C. S. Lewis describes a walk in the forest on a hot summer day. He had just asked his friend how best to cultivate a heart thankful toward God. His hiking companion turned to a nearby brook, splashed his face and hands in a little waterfall, and asked, “Why not begin with this?” Lewis said he learned a great principle in that moment: “Begin where you are.”


A trickling waterfall, the wind in the willows, a baby robin, the blue sky, a tiny flower. Why not begin your thankfulness with this?

Psalm 136:1-9.

Prayer

Father, Thank You that all creation displays and sings your praises. Thank You too that creation reminded me that You have placed beauty here because it reflects Your character. I praise You! In Jesus name. Amen.
