Day #5 – “The Beach…the mountains…”

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Psalm 19:1-3

The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!

How unsearchable his judgments,

and his paths beyond tracing out!

“Who has known the mind of the Lord?

Or who has been his counselor?”

“Who has ever given to God,

that God should repay them?”

For from him and through him and for him are all things.

To him be the glory forever! Amen.

Reflection

Why do we find ourselves at beaches or mountains where there are vast depths, unending horizon, in credible power, and the highest heights? Perhaps unbeknown to us we are actually seeking an experience that big and deep and powerful.  Creation reflects the glory of God, and it captures us for a moment to remind us that in Christ, we have the biggest love, the highest thoughts and hopes, and the deepest experiences anyone could ever grasp.  We can and should seek that…and find it in Him.

Response

Let’s seek that Lord would change our hearts into this pattern of going deep, as we close this week. Sing songs celebrating that all glory belongs to him! May there always be praise!
