Now that is a sunrise

My recent study on the fear of the Lord brought me to a place of recognition of God's greatness and thus my respectful fear of Him through His creation in nature.  I have had the wonderful privilege of seeing some of God's most magnificent creations throughout my travels.  Some of my favorites include; The Grand Canyon, The Beaches of Maui, Bermuda and Cape Code, The Mountains of Yosemite, Banff and Jackson Hole (not to mention Colorado, namely Crested Butte), and least I forget the sunsets on Grand Lake in Oklahoma.  God is great and mighty and can be seen in all His glory and greatness in the world that surrounds us each and everyday.

How much more can He work in my life and yours?  How much more can He do in a life surrendered to Him?  The God who created all we see also created you and me.  There is no challenger, no crisis, no circumstance bigger than Him and the power He possesses.  When I understand Who I serve, and what He is capable of (as seen in His creation) I can't help but have peace in all life's storms.  Today I watched a beautiful Oklahoma sunrise, but it is nothing compared to the beauty of God's work through His people today.  

Psalms 33:6-9, "By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.  He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deep in storehouses.  Let all the earth fear the Lord; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.  For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast."

I needed to be reminded of this truth today, Donnie. Nothing in this world is bigger than my God. He is not limited by resources, time, or ability. Nothing is impossible with HIM! Praise God for the peace that passes all understanding with HIM in control.
