An Amazing Creator, A Loving Father

We all saw the same sunset. Two nights ago, three of us friends in nearby towns were captivated by the beauty of God’s painting at dusk. Technology couldn’t do the scene justice. Our cameras tried to capture the golden, persimmon clouds that stretched across the sky. The pictures were pretty enough, but nothing compared to standing underneath the radiated glow that the clouds emitted and taking in the glory of God’s masterpiece painting.   

God’s glory radiates through the universe. Every eye that looks heavenward can see His beauty and creativity. The stars that shine each night testify to His matchless creative genius and to His limitless power. The rising and setting of the sun constantly reminds us that He is in control of all things, having set the earth in its orbit and the stars in their place. Nothing is too big that He can’t manage.
Nothing is so small that He doesn’t care about it. Under the great expanse of heaven, God knows each beating heart and each life with its cares and concerns. He sees every joy and tear (Psalm 56:8).

Whatever care or concern you have right now—great or small—take it to the God who loves you perfectly. If He formed the stars and called them all by name (Psalm 147:4), He knows what our needs are and how to meet them if we look to Him (Matthew 6:25-33). If He paints the most gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, He can bring beauty into our lives and make something stunning out of them. The Creator of the universe loves each of us, His most cherished creations. May each sunset and each star remind you of His unfailing love and limitless power that acts on your behalf.
