1The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. (Psalm 19:1-6)
The physical creation all around us is awesome. Man has never fully appreciated the wonder in the simplest actions of God. Take for example the sunrises and sunsets. The sun rises and sets with such precision that almanacs can predict its exact arrival and departure down to the minute, years in advance. The rising and setting of the sun is also spectacular. It’s like a trumpet calling attention to the glory and faithfulness of God. There are no words to adequately describe the beauty when the rays of the sun first appear through the clouds in the early morning or begin to leave in the evening.
These daily events often go unnoticed or unappreciated by the vast majority of us. There is no language that doesn’t understand this form of communication, but our preoccupation with ourselves makes us deaf to it. The Lord speaks to us through His creation, but few of us listen.
Regardless of how dark your situation may be, a dawn is coming if you trust in God—just as surely as the sun will rise in the morning. Regardless of how hard your labor may be, a time of rest is coming—just as surely as the sun sets each day. Nothing people do will change the rising and the setting of the sun, and nothing people do will change the faithfulness of God to you. That is what He is saying to you today as you watch the sun rise and set.
