His Radiant Beauty

Sunset sky over a beautiful field

As we begin another week together, I want to ask you a question. Are you taking the time to “smell the roses?” We are so guilty of getting caught up with life and ministry that I am afraid we don’t take the time to “smell the roses” nor do we take the time to be still and enjoy God’s creation.

My devotion was on this subject just recently and I would like to share it with you.

Worship Me in the beauty of holiness. I created beauty to declare the existence of My Holy Being. A magnificent rose, a hauntingly glorious sunset, oceanic splendor—all these things were meant to proclaim My Presence in the world. Most people rush past these proclamations without giving them a second thought. Some people use beauty, especially feminine loveliness, to sell their products.

How precious are My children who are awed by nature’s beauty; this opens them up to My holy Presence. Even before you knew Me personally, you responded to My creation with wonder. This is a gift, and it carries responsibility with it. Declare My glorious Being to the world, The whole earth is full of my radiant beauty—My Glory!

I don’t know about you, but I never get tired of a sunrise or a sunset. It is a reminder to me of the magnificence of our Lord and Savior. I want to slow down and enjoy his radiant beauty. How about you?

Be still and know I am God!
