October Sunrise

october-sunrise-008

As I was bringing breakfast to the table this morning I caught a glimpse of the sunrise out our front door window. It’s a small window and what I saw caused me to pause, yet hurry. I wanted to see more. I set our plates down and opened the curtains and immediately uttered the words, “Wow! That’s beautiful.” God did it, He paints the sky. As Psalm 113:3 says, “From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the Lord is to be praised.” Here’s the thing; just as me seeing a glimpse of the sunrise this morning caused me to want to see more, when any person gets a glimpse of Christ they want to see more of Him. His beauty is altogether lovely.

Psalm 113 says:

Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and forever.
From the rising of the sun to its setting
The name of the Lord is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations;
His glory is above the heavens.

Who is like the Lord our God,
Who is enthroned on high,
Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in heaven and in the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust
And lifts the needy from the ash heap,
To make them sit with princes,
With the princes of His people.
He makes the barren woman abide in the house
As a joyful mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
