This has been more than refreshing. Walking in a rain forest & atop a mountain..God is constantly reminding us EVERYDAY how MAJESTIC He is. It’s very ignorant of us to take for granted this beautiful place that we live in. The high mountains, the low valleys, the green pastures is just a glimpse of the wonderful works his His hands have created. I remember reading Job a few weeks ago and though it is full of Job’s conversations towards God, Elihu, towards the end in chapter 37 “proclaims God’s majesty.”
This encouraged Job to see that God is still God despite having all of us treasures taken away along with his family and friends. Sometimes we think that when we lose our “prized possessions” our world is coming to an end. But how misled our thoughts are. We forget that God is the creator of all the universe..and only focus on our 70-90 years of existence. How ignorant we can be!
I know it’s easier said than done..but we can’t forget how great our God is. We are flesh, we are human..but when we receive His love and know that we are saved by grace through faith, HE LIVES IN US! Just as the same power that conquered the grave lives in us, I believe that the power that created the heavens and the earth also lives in us. Of course we can’t create anything of that magnitude, but it should remind us and encourage us that even though we lose people, material things, & etc..God is more than enough! God’s love is all that we need and all that we should want. Nothing else matters..Him being at the center of our lives should propel us to return that love back to Him.
