Hello Readers, welcome back to my blog.
I want to share with you words FROM THE ONE YEAR PRAYING PROMISES OF GOD by CHERL FULLER. I hope her words blesses you and takes you on a path to discovering God for yourself.
“All heaven will praise your great wonders, LORD; myriads of angels will praise you for your faithfulness. For who in all of heaven can compare with the LORD? What mightiest angel is anything like the LORD?” – Psalm 89: 5-6
In our childhood years, wonder is a natural response to the miracles of nature – the green-striped caterpillar, the sparkling night sky, a butterfly’s wings. Our sense of wonder and amazement often diminishes in adulthood as we become preoccupied with the reality of work and other responsibilities but as the psalmist pens these praiseful verses, he is filled with wonder at God’s miracles in creation and in His working in humanity.
Wonder: an awe-filled response to God that leads to praise and worship. Wonder: a sense of surprise or state of amazed admiration. Wonder: experiencing something far beyond anything we’ve previously known.
Wonder must have been what the Israelites felt when Moses stretched out his staff over the Red Sea and the waters parted to cut a pathway for them to walk safely to the other side. It must have been what young David felt when he slung a stone at the giant Philistine warrior Goliath and watched him keel over. What the astonished onlookers must have felt when Lazarus walked out of the tomb at Jesus’ command, or what the disciples experienced as Jesus fed the five thousand with only a few loaves of bread and a couple of fish.
Does God still do things that inspire us?
God didn’t create everything in the world gray or leave everything unscented. Instead in His creative grace, He has given us rich blessings in the world around us. Look around you and be amazed at His “little” miracles and the mystery of His grace. Ask for eyes that are sensitive to His faithful working in your life and in the lives of those around you. For “who in all of heaven can compare with the LORD?”
Father God, you have created all things in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible. You are worthy to receive glory, honour and praise. Thank you for your wondrous miracles.
Joy is to behold God in everything
Julian of Norwich (c. 1342-after 1413) English Christian mystic and writer
