Back in June of 2017, I wrote a post about Water(link). This post grew out of walking along the The Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas. Since this post, I have spent so much time in on the water, but tonight as I looked out at this sunset near Cedar Key, Florida. I was flooded with the peacefulness of water in God’s creation.
Sunset on the Water
Sunsets are my favorite, but whether it is sunset or sunrise over the water it always takes my breath away. This evening in Cedar Key was no different, but tonight my thoughts drifted to God’s creation. The beauty of the water rippling under the sunset is a perfect example of why I believe there is a God. Romans 1:20 reminds us that God has left no doubt in why we should believe in Him, “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” Man is without excuse, yet today we busy ourselves with the hustle and bustle that allows our lives to slip through our fingers and then is gone. Did we see God? Did we find God? Did we stop and smell the flowers? Watch Sunsets? Listen to the Water? In a blink it is all gone. So stop and listen to God. Proverbs 3:6 reassures us, ” In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
If you are reading this my challenge to you is to stop reading now. Pray. And start looking beyond your day to day life and what you normally see and search for God in your surroundings. Look deeper into the Water.
Closing Verse: “ O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.” Psalm 63:1
Challenge: Find God in his creation ~ Don’t Miss Out!
