|This morning as I was reading about Abraham|
and studying what the Bible has to say about "HOPE",
a few words jumped off the page at me.
When God talked to Abraham,
HE TOOK HIM OUTSIDE,
"Look up at the sky..."
"HE TOOK HIM OUTSIDE",
made me think of how many times God ministers to me
and restores my soul by taking me outside!
|God often calls our attention to things in the world|
that He has made and takes care of,
and reminds us to
"Look at the birds of the air;
they do not sow or reap or store away in barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they?"
|In the book of Job,|
God does not explain why Job went through all his troubles,
but in Job chapters 38 and 39,
He simply calls Job's attention to nature.
His language is picturesque...
even mentioning He is the one who
"sets the wild donkeys free"!
|Last night my friend TJ and I went for a walk |
just before the sun set.
"No matter how stressed I am," TJ said,
"I always feel better
when I get outside and go for a walk."
|So maybe you might want to|
GO OUTSIDE TODAY
and see what God has to show you!
"And you will seek Me and find Me,
when you search for Me with all your heart."
Maybe, like my friend TJ, you'll find it does you good!
I know it certainly helps me to go outside...
It seems to help me see God in nature,
feel His presence near me,
and remind me of His promises.
Thanks for dropping by!
