Read Isaiah 40
Look at the sky and see.
Who created these things?
Who brings out the stars one by one?
He calls them all by name.
Because of the greatness of his might and the strength of his power,
not one of them is missing.
If I am a child of God, where can I see the tremendous treasures of His holiness and His triumphs in my life? How do I see the face of God and not depend on idols?
My ability to bring my mind and thoughts into focus is to feel God’s warmth with the sun on my face, the gentle caress of my hair in the wind, see the beauty of the rosebud that may one day bloom, and the colors of autumn’s wisdom as the days fade.
What in my life has shifted my focus away from the sunrises and sunsets that God paints for me each day? Or the soothing rain that shares my tears from heaven?
I am powerless when faced with my life’s difficulties on my own. I am unable to endure the darkness when it is God who I need. My futility in prayer is my inability to visualize God in my life when He surrounds me each day in nature. I humbly ask God’s forgiveness and boldly ask Him to correct my blurred vision to see the guiding sun and moon of His eternal presence in my circumstances and in the lives of others too.
Dear Lord, I give you all the praise and glory! Thank you for calling me by name to draw me close and by the power of your love so I may not wander away from you. I love you! In Jesus Christ’s name, I pray. Amen
