He is running the place!

“Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding..” Psalm 148:7-8.

Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading; Psalm 148, Malachi 3-4, and Acts 5.

I must never lose track of God’s marvels in my midst.

I live in a neighborhood where the leaves haven’t done much changing yet.  This morning my wife and I drove about ten miles away from here and were suddenly in a sea of colors.  Made me want to get my camera!

I have a river nearby and then there are those sunrises and sunsets.  Beautiful stuff!

It is beyond comprehension how God manages everything.  It sure helps that He is omnipresent!

I saw a fish jump in the nearby river.  Is God monitoring its behavior?  Yes, He is.

I tend to notice the “home-run visuals” in my midst but am I mindful of the other things He manages?  We would not be able to live on earth if the sun was further away or closer.  He has set it just right.

There are those who would say that the universe is on auto-pilot.  They must be joking.  Someone is in charge and that Someone is God.

“Lord, I marvel at Your creation.  Forgive me for missing what You are doing.  You are in charge.  You are great.  I praise You, Father.”

What a universe He is running!
