Workshop of the Heavens

I remember knowing kids whose fathers were quite successful. One was a judge, the other a prominent physician. I attended church with the son of the mayor. “My father has an office at the courthouse,” he could claim. Well guess what you can claim? “My Father rules the universe!”

Scripture says, “The heavens tell the glory of God and the skies announce what his hands have made.” Nature is God’s workshop. The sky is his resume. You want to know who God is? See what he has done. You want to know his power? Take a look at his creation.

How vital that we pray armed with the knowledge that God is in heaven. Pray with any lesser conviction and your prayers are timid and shallow and hollow. But spend some time walking the workshop of the heavens, seeing what God has done, seeing what your Father has done, and watch how your prayers are energized.

Just for You

Behold the sun! Every square yard of it is constantly emitting 130,000 horse power, the equivalent of 450 eight-cylinder car engines.

Consider the earth! Our globe’s weight is estimated at six sextillion tons—that’s a six with 21 zeros! Yet it’s precisely tilted at twenty-three degrees or our seasons would be lost in a melted polar flood.

If God is able to place the stars in their sockets and suspend the sky like a curtain, do you think it remotely possible God is able to guide your life? Next time a sunrise steals your breath, say nothing and listen as heaven whispers, “Do you like it? I did it just for you.”
