Today’s Scripture: The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory. Psalm 97:6

Do you ever wish that you could see a display of God’s love here on earth? Often, we become so busy with our work schedules and smartphones, we overlook the special ways the Lord shows Himself to us each day. When we take a little time to look around, we can find marvelous ways in which God has revealed His care for us.

Consider the beauty and glow of the moon and stars as they peer from behind the clouds. Think of the intricate design of the snowflakes we enjoy this time of year. They flurry about in the wind and cover the ground in a pure blanket of white.

There are countless things in nature the Lord has provided for our pleasure. These are a display of His affection for us. The entire earth is His handiwork. The heavens declare His righteousness. When we stop to admire His creation, we can clearly see His glory and love revealed.

Have you been waiting for a sign of God’s love? Perhaps you feel He does not care about you. Contemplate for a moment how much love He has shown through His wonderfully detailed creation. Why not take the time to write down some of your favorite things about nature? Thank the Lord. Let His handiwork serve as a continual reminder of His love for you.
