Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen. Psalm 72:19
I simply love to be outdoors in the early morning just before the sun rises above the horizon. The morning is quiet, the birds have begun their morning songs, and the sky is filled with the pastel colors of the rising sun as it breaks through the morning darkness. God’s glory is always revealed in His creation first thing in the morning and I begin my day praising Him for all He has done.
Today’s passage from the Psalms reminds us that the whole earth is filled with the glory of God. All we need do is step outside and breathe in the majesty of God’s glorious creation. If we can do this every day, then we will find a daily connection with God as we offer up our praise for His marvelous works. Even on the foggy days brought on by Early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, when I can do little else, I am able to go outside, take in the splendor of the morning, and offer my praise and thanksgiving to the Lord who blesses me every single day. For instance:
- In the midst of my struggles, He shows me spiritual strength.
- In the midst of my confusion, He provides me certain clarity.
- In the midst of my uncertainty, He offers me unfathomable peace.
- In the midst of my heartaches, He delivers me heartfelt comfort.
- In the midst of my human weakness, He showers me with heavenly power.
His blessings surround me, hold me up, and remind me of His glory each and every morning. If you are struggling today, do as King Solomon did in today passage; praise His glorious name and acknowledge His glory which fills the whole earth. He is our King, He loves us dearly, He continues to shower us with His blessings, and He longs to hear our heartfelt praises. Praise Him today and forever for He is God Almighty. Amen and Amen!
