DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Thursday, November 19, 2015
Today’s scripture reading:
When we think of the law, we often think of something that keeps us from having fun. But here we see the opposite: God’s laws revive us, make us wise, bring joy to the heart, give insight, warn us, and reward us. God’s laws are guidelines and lights for our path, rather than chains on our hands and feet. They point at danger to warn us, then point at success to guide us. (NLT)
Psalm 19:1-8 – The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or a word, their voice is silent in the skies; yet their message has gone out to all the earth, and their words to all the world.
The sun lives in the heavens where God placed it. It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete eater to run the race. The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat.
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight to life.
Heaven is declaring God’s glory; the sky is proclaiming his handiwork. — Psalm 19:1 (CEB)
Kevin Main (Florida) titled his story “GOD’S MASTERPIECES;” here is a portion of Kevin’s story:
“. . . When we feel helpless in the face of life’s challenges, we can look at creation and know that just as long ago God made the splendor around us from a world that was void and empty, God is still creating magnificent masterpieces. Knowing that God can also make our lives beautiful, we can celebrate the beauty of creation.”
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – Where have I seen God today?
Prayer: Dear God, thank you for the wonderful world you created. May the glory of your creation always remind us that you are still creating a glorious life within each of us. Amen.
