The Thoughts That Went Into It

Another reason to let the Lord be Lord of our lives because He has the perspective to eternity past to eternity future: "To the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen," Jude 1:25.

    As we drove down a street adjacent to ours today, I could see the beginning processes of a new subdivision being built.  What has been a wooded area for all my years here is now being transformed with the power of bull dozers and saws.  The underground pipes wait their turn to be laid.  It is an overwhelming process beyond my thoughts of what, when and where things should go.
    Even more incomprehensible is God's creation of everything under the sun in this world, plus the heavens above us as well.  How can you look around on this gorgeous spring day and not see His handiwork displayed?  'How great Thou art' is the biggest understatement of all time but it's a praise intended statement.
   Psalm 14; 1-2  ''The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.''
   It's no joke to be the fool who believes and relies on his own understanding.
