“The earth is full of his unfailing love.” (Psalm 33:5)
New beginnings often give us a sense of hope and joy. Newly married couples radiate happiness on their wedding day. Choosing a new place to live is often an exciting adventure. There’s a certain energy that accompanies the start of a new job. As we get ready to celebrate the new year tonight with parties, cheers, and even fireworks, keep in mind that
God designed creation to give us a similar sense of hope and joy. Before sin entered the world, creation radiated God’s justice, faithfulness, and love. God’s word, by which the heavens and the earth were created, gave structure and meaning to all created things.
At times, we still catch glimpses of this beauty and joy in creation. We marvel at the majestic views of a beach and ocean. We watch the sun set over the water. We wonder at the complex patterns of frost etched on our window panes. We admire the fresh snow blanketing trees in the winter. And when spring comes, we are delighted with the first blade of grass or the first blooming flower.
Too often, though, in our hurry through life we miss the creative majesty of God at work. What’s new soon becomes old, and we feel no reason to offer praise or even take notice. As you enter this new year, ask God to help you instead to observe something new each day about his unfailing love in creation.
“Dont hurry through life we miss God’s creative majesty at work.”
Heavenly Father, the stars and the seas declare your goodness and love. By your Holy Spirit, help us do the same. Open my heart and my eyes to see You Lord while observing creation all around me. Thank You for my family and my friends. In Jesus’ precious and glorious name I pray, Amen.
Happy New Year from Scriptural Seeds Ministries, may you be blessed abundantly this new year.
