But it was your own eyes that saw all these great things the Lord has done.
As I read about the Grand Canyon I love to imagine what it would be like to fly over it. I read one person’s description that went like this. As you descend from the clouds above, you begin to see an amazing terrain below. A landscape filled with countless mountains raised high above the valleys, presenting a canvas of true majesty and magnificence. What a sight to behold! That the Creator, who blueprinted the perfection and splendor that had been carved out by His mighty hand.
Do we take the time to notice the amazing things God has made for us to enjoy? Sometimes we don’t take the time.
Sadly, we are blinded to the most amazing, yet simplest truths of life. Truth of how much He loves and delights in us. How He is all sufficient for our needs and how He calls each of us to come and know Him personally. But, thankfully, by His grace, when our eyes are open, we can see all things with a brand new view!
The day our hearts change and God reveals the fullness of His grace, we begin to see everything with a fresh new look. As God clears the clutter of sin out of our hearts, it is replaced with a new ability to love more, to be filled with great compassion and to extend forgiveness to those that hurt us. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for God's plan for our lives. We just accept, embrace and receive it.
Dear Lord, we pray that You will open our eyes to see more than what's in front of us, so we may share Your handy work with those around us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
