I am finishing my sermon for tomorrow and as I was writing, I was contemplating how awesome God is. To even begin to fathom how great God must be to create all that He has created should boggle our minds. In the middle of writing I managed to take a few moments this evening to sit outside with my wife and dog and watch the beautiful sunset we had here today. In the midst of the hoopla of college football today, all the problems and issues that we seem to have created for ourselves and the unlimited drama that has been revealed about people's lives through Facebook, God still remembered to give us a sunset, an extremely beautiful sunset at that.
The sun comes up and the sun goes down regardless of what we do here to mess up the world because it rises and sets based on God and not on man. God is still on His throne, God is still in control and God has not forgotten about you. He loves ever single one of us in His creation and He longs to have an intimate relationship with us all.
Acts 17:24-28, God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men's hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. 26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being... NKJV
