Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water. (Rev. 14:7)
Mountains or beach? This is a popular question people ask. Some people prefer the crisp mountain air, while others long for the waves, sun, and sea. I love both. I just can’t decide between the two.
In the city where we live, there is one specific spot on Interstate 85 that holds my favorite view. It’s a perfect glimpse of the mountains in the distance. If you’re not paying attention, you’ll miss it, but I always make sure I’m looking out for it. It stirs up the same emotion within me that I feel when I top the crest of the dunes and see the ocean. I keep thinking that I’ll get used to it—that one day I’ll take in that view of the mountains or spy the waves on the shore, and it will just be normal. But I genuinely pray that it never becomes normal, because the feeling that rises up within me is overwhelming gratitude.
When I see these beautiful sights, it reminds me of the greatness of God. I can hardly fathom that the God who created such beautiful things loves and cares for me! How can we not worship him?
He is the Lamb of God, who has taken away ours sins, redeemed and restored us, made us new. For all of these things and more, he alone is worthy of our worship.
Take time today to worship God for all he is.
