O Lord my God you have done many miracles for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them. (Psalm 40:5)
One summer’s evening I was standing on an isolated beach in Florida, looking out into the Gulf of Mexico. After a long mesmerizing gaze I shifted my eyes to the waves breaking on the beach. A thunderstorm had passed through the area earlier, but now an exceptionally clear sky appeared stretching to the horizon. The view was breath taking and the moment a memory maker.
Though the stars were obviously always present, after the storm, thousands more seemed to appear. A deep sense of awe rose within me, gratefulness for the moment, and praise for God’s greatness.
The immensity of all God has done, and continues to do, far exceeds our capacity to mentally absorb, as is God’s plans for us. Our part is to acknowledge him, follow him as he leads, and honor his greatness. He alone is the God of wonder!
Lord, you have done more for me than I am aware, more than I can imagine. You have included me in your magnificent plans and I am humbled and grateful. Lead me to tell those in my path, of the greatness of your glory. Amen.
“For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”
