Do you ever look up at the moon and stars and think, my Father made that!? As amazing as it is, the way for us to know the One who created the heavens personally has been opened to us. It is staggering that the Almighty God stoops to care for us - and yet he does. Let's remember what a mighty and wonderful God we serve and proclaim!
HOW DO THE HEAVENS "DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD"?
"If, one day, I should walk into a hotel room and suddenly see my clothes there, my favorite food, paintings by artists I like, where the alarm clock is already set to the time I need to wake up and the air conditioner is set at precisely my preferred temperature, I would know that someone had prepared the room specifically for me before I was there."
