Today is Eclipse Day, August 21, 2017. As I was watching the Eclipse, the Scripture, Psalm 40:5, was running through my mind. Also, the song, Let Your Glory Fall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnnHSxW3N0w has been with me all day. We sang this song yesterday during worship service, and this morning God woke me with it running through my mind.
Not only does God’s Glory fall as we lift up our voices in worship and praise to Him, but He shows His Glory every day through His creation. I just pray that as people were witnessing His handiwork, that they would realize that this world is not just an accident, a mere happenstance, caused by some explosion that resulted in all of this magnificence. Psalm 40:5 expresses the heart of David as he marvels over all that God has done.
Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them they would be too numerous to count. (NASB)
I don’t understand how people can doubt the existence of God when they look around at this world. Everything is so intricately made that you know there just HAS to be a Great Creator! And the thought that He also made me, just because He loves me, is so awesome to think about. I can’t help but praise Him for His love, and know that He cares for me, even the smallest detail of my life!
With all of the turmoil of this day and age, I wish that people would stop and consider the fact that God created each one of us, Black, White, Asian, Native American, whatever nationality, color, and creed, and He called it good! There is only one race….the human race! With all the discord in this world, it seems like God has to do something so awe-inspiring, like bring an Eclipse, to remind us of Who He is, and what He can do. If He can create something as wonderful as an Eclipse, He can heal hearts, bring peace, and save us from our sins.
Oh God, how wonderful are Your Works!
