We can get so focused on the tasks at hand, such as that paper that needs to get finished, that final on Monday, those papers that have to be graded and returned and recorded, that we really can miss the big picture. So once you have completed that final task, sit back, look up, and reconnect with God. That doesn’t mean that you ever fully disconnected, but sometimes when we are surrounded by the immediate and the concrete we forget that He is God of all.
Start with sky . . . the clouds, the stars, the sunrise, the sunset, the moon. This is our BIG God. The one who is awesome. The one who is so often hard to fathom. Our invisible God that we often have trouble wrapping our tiny finite minds around but who takes our breath away with His glorious wonders.
Then move to his creation . . . the trees, flowers, the rain, the animals, the people in our lives. This is our loving God. This is the God we can feel. The one who made a beautiful world for us to enjoy, and who placed people in our lives at just the right time. This is our God who touches our soul with His handiwork and His heart.
Finally, move back to the concrete and see Him in the details. . . the timely text you received from a friend who had no idea that one hour before you were asking God to show you He was listening and then here came that text . . . speaking God’s word right into you. Or that jacket that for two months you have been skirting around and choosing every other sweater or coat, but for some reason chose today and found $15 in the pocket . . . and you needing some money to tide you till the end of the week. This is our personal God. The one that knows the hairs on our head. The one who sees us fall and helps us back up. This is the God we can see . . . in the details, in other people, in a text, in His word.
Worship our awesome God. Feel secure in our loving God. See our personal God in the details of your life. (I would love to hear about God revealing himself in the details of your life.)
