"Look Out"

"The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory." Psalm 97:6

As I was praying about the word to share with you this morning, I heard the Lord say- "Look out". Look out the window, look out the door, look outside. What do you see? You see that God exist. The creation declares the existence of God. Nothing came into being without Him. It didn't make its own self. It wasn't some random accident. It was planned and thought of in the mind and heart of the Wonderful Creator.

"Look out". What do you see? You see the evidence that He is still here. God hasn't died. He hasn't abdicated His role as Sovereign of the universe. He hasn't left or vacated the premise. He hasn't turned it over to another to watch over creation.

"Look out". What do you see? You see His beauty revealed, His power manifested, His glory unveiled. Creation points to God and a revelation of who He is.

This morning, what do you see? Do you see dark clouds shrouding the horizon? Do you see storms raging? Do you see hopelessness and despair? Do you see overwhelming circumstances trying to consume you? If this is what you see then you need to "look out". Take a look outside. Take a really good look. Not at the things necessarily that are seen, but what aren't seen. God is real. He is still there. He is still in control. He is still all powerful. Don't lose sight this morning of who God is. Don't let the problems you are facing blind you from seeing God's love, care and presence with you. He is there... just "look out" and "look up".

Have a great day. Take a minute to look at creation and be reminded that the God who created the whole universe cares about you, and is more than able to take care of whatever it is that you are going through.
