I think it's remarkable that if I flick an ant off my desk on to the floor it will just walk away unharmed even though it has fallen from a height that is thousands of times it's size.
"There are three things that are too amazing for me,
four that I do not understand:
the way of an eagle in the sky,
the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
and the way of a man with a maiden. (NIV Bible)
Explore: I am regularly amazed at the world I live in. I think it is absolutely fasinating that I can call my parents, who live 300 kilometers from me, on the phone and they can hear me clearly and instantly. I think it's remarkable that if I flick an ant off my desk on to the floor it will just walk away unharmed even though it has fallen from a height that is thousands of times it's size. I find it hard to understand that there are some people you just seem to click with instantly, a profound chemistry between two people that leads to something deeper and yet had begun with just a feeling.'
Application: Our world is an amazing place. And it represents just a fraction of the brilliance of God. He put all that we see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and know in to being. No one can fully understand how imaginative and detailed God is. I know that I stand in awe of things that He probably thought of in an instant. As we walk throughout our day it is so easy to just glide past the intricacy and depth to our world around us. But may we not forget how amazing our world is, and how brilliant God, who created all things, is still today.
Prayer: Lord, everything we touch and know came from You. While we can never understand You completely we do thank You for all You have given to us. Amen.
Look around you. What is something that amazes you and shows you God's brilliance?
