I trust you had a wonderful Sunday. I came away from church yesterday challenged, full, and rejoicing from being in the presence of God with His people. We are in Amos and we are seeing the holiness of God and His condemnation of Israel's sin of apostasy and promised judgment. In His lovingkindness and grace, He calls Israel (and us) to forsake sin and turn to Him and seek Him. He is jealous for our obedience and true worship!
I think on Mondays, I am going to post scripture that points to the majesty and wonders of God. I was drawn to Psalm 104 this morning. It's a rather long psalm so I just put up about half. I would like to encourage you during some of your free time this week to read the entire psalm, meditating on it. What a great psalm that testifies to the wonders and power of God through His creation and exalts Jesus as Creator, Sustainer, and as Superintendent over it! Then, I invite you to post a favorite passage in the comment section sometime this week that exalts Jesus as Creator. Let's exalt His name, together!
"Bless the LORD, O my soul!
O LORD my God, You are very great;
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak,
Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.
He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters;
He makes the clouds His chariot;
He walks upon the wings of the wind;
He makes the winds His messengers,
Flaming fire His ministers.
He established the earth upon its foundation,
So that it will not totter forever and ever.
You covered it with the deep as with a garment;
The waters were standing above the mountains.
At your rebuke they fled,
At the sound of Your thunder they hurried away.
The mountains rose; the valleys sank down
to the place which You established for them.
You set a boundary that they may not pass over,
So that they will not return to cover the earth.
He sends forth springs in the valleys;
They flow between the mountains;
They give drink to every beast of the field;
The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell;
They lift up their voices among the branches...
...O LORD, how many are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all;
The earth if full of Your possessions..."
