Sunday Style - The Magnificence Of Creation

Sunday Style - The Magnificence Of Creation

We just finished an amazing trip to the Grand Canyon. It was breathtaking. Unbelieveable!

When we caught the first look at the canyon, I was overcome by the awesomeness of our great Creator! The artistry of God's hand is so incredible... Are there enough adjectives to describe the beauty?

Colossians 1:16-17(NLT)
16 for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. 17 He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.

We were constantly being reminded of God's grace and mercy. It never got old seeing the magnificent parts of the canyon. We were in such awe at every turn.

That's kind of how we feel about our walk with Jesus. In every turn, we are in awe of His goodness, His grace to us, His mercy and kindness.

1 Corinthians 15:10(NKJV)
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Each day as we approached the edge of the Grand Canyon, it was almost as if we were stepping into His Presence. We slowed down to drink in the majesty and grandeur of the scene before us. God is so much more than we can think or imagine.

Ephesians 3:20(NIV)
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us

The beauty that God creates for us each day in a sunrise or sunset, or the blooming of a flower, is something I don't want to take for granted. 

The Grand Canyon has been around for thousands of years. For me it is an example of His faithfulness. He is my rock, the foundation of my faith. It will not be shaken or moved. It is secure and steady. 

Deuteronomy 7:9(NLT)
9 Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.

We all need reminders of His faithfulness. Take a look around at creation and see all that He created for you. He continues to show you how strong, mighty and faithful He is.

Be blessed!
