You have set your glory above the heavens

Last weekend, God painted the most beautiful sunset on the palette

of the Missouri sky that I have ever seen!

.

Immense

Colorful

Brilliant

Creative

Breathtaking

.

Psalm 8 reflects on the immensity of this amazing world God created for us.

Is this the type of beauty that inspired the

Old Testament singer-songwriter to write these words?

.

“You have set your glory above the heavens…

When I look at your heaven, the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

What is man that you are mindful of him,

and the son of man that you care for him?

O Lord, our Lord,

How majestic is your name in all the earth!”

Spectacular sights like this sunset remind me of A. W. Tozer’s declaration,

“We must never rest until everything inside us worships God.”

I cannot help but break out in praise as I take in the gracious beauty of my loving Creator!
