Verse of the day

This verse made it to my Inbox today, and caused me to reflect for a while. Why is it that we choose not to acknowledge God's handiwork everywhere around us? Just stop, and smell the roses. Look outside, and marvel. And be humble. We are so privileged to be made in His image. Ever wondered what God is like. Look around you, and look at yourself. Your heart is the same as His. Able to love, care with infinite ability. Yet sometimes we choose to do the opposite.

Psa 19:1
(AMP) To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. [Rom. 1:20, 21.]

Rom 1:20
(AMP) For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification], [Ps. 19: 1-4.]
(MSG) By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can't see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse.

No, we don't have good excuses. We as a human race think we are so clever, and masters of our own destiny. But we are not. And yet we can be. When we know God intimately, we can fulfill His purpose, and actually be all those things. Profound.
And my daughter just said I should write "God, you're the greatest one in the world."
