This morning, as I read Psalm 19, I was inspired and encouraged.
Psalms 19:1-3 (NKJV) The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. 2 Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.
This psalm draws my attention to the majesty and power of God. Every tree, every cloud, the sun and moon in the sky, the breeze I feel on my cheek; all of these were created by God. So when I really look at them, and think about their beauty, they take my mind off whatever dreary circumstances I might be facing at the moment, and point my attention back to Him.
I think what so inspired me this morning is the realization that even in my times of discouragement, anxiety, or fear, I can stop, look around me at God’s creation, and be reminded of His awesome power that remains in control of this universe and of my personal world.
