Saturday, August 4th: Psalm 7-9, Matthew 17 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Psalm 7-9, Matthew 17

Psalm 8 is a beautiful picture of God's amazing creative power.  I was just in Calgary and Banff this past week and marvelled at the beauty of God's creation.  The mountains, the valleys, the sunsets, the trees - it was breathtakingly beautiful!  And as I stood in awe of the beauty around me it struck me as impossible to not believe in a Creator.

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

The vastness of God's creation is humbling, and it makes us ask the same question as the psalmist.  But that is what is so incredible.  God is mindful of us, and He does care for us.  We, who destroy the beauty He created, who hurt each other, and who disrespect our Creator.  He loves us.  He sent His Son to die for us so that we might be saved and He would be glorified.

Let us not get so caught up in the beauty of creation that we miss out on the Creator.

All glory to Him!
