There really are things we can only understand by faith. What makes the moon hang without falling from the sky? What keeps the sun from tipping a tad closer to earth? What keeps us from spinning off into space as the earth turns? Only by faith can we touch the heart of God and know without doubt that He created the entire universe–the stars, the galaxies, the suns, the moons, the planets. Only by faith do we believe God spoke them into being. And by faith we understand that we do not need to have all the answers, even though we continually seek answers.
“By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.” Hebrews 11:3
A full moon amazes me. Sometimes, because of earth’s rotation, it seems as though I could touch it if I walked toward it, stand on tiptoe and stretch out my arm. I get excited thinking about the awesome majesty of God whenever I sit beneath the stars and consider that from absolutely nothing, God created all there is that I can see and more. I love how tiny I feel as I stare at the darkest night and see a meteor shower. My heart overflows with amazement that God would grant me life and grace to know He is who He is–my Redeemer, Creator, and Father. Such power. Such glory. Such splendor. Such warmth, and steadfast love. Do you feel like that? Do you ever stop to consider the grandeur of creation? The more often I do, the greater and more awesome God seems to me. And the easier it is to trust Him in the smaller things of my life.
PRAYER: Lord, keep us ever-mindful of your greatness. Grant us faith to see Your daily watchcare in the majesty of Your glory.
