Enjoy the View. Join GOD in taking delight in all that He has made.

Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Himโ€‹, all you shining stars.โ€”Psalm 148:3

Sunsets. People tend to stop what they are doing to watch them . . . snap pictures of them . . . enjoy the beautiful view.

My wife and I watched the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico recently. A crowd of people surrounded us, mostly strangers who had gathered at the beach to watch this nightly phenomenon. At the moment the sun fully slipped below the horizon, the crowd broke out with applause.

Why do people respond like that? The book of Psalms offers a clue. The psalmist wrote of GOD ordering the sun to praise its Creator (Ps. 148:3). And wherever the rays of the sun shine across the earth, people are moved to praise along with them.

The beauty that comes to us through nature speaks to our souls like few things do. It not only has the capacity to stop us in our tracks and captivate our attention, it also has the power to turn our focus to the Maker of beauty itself.

The wonder of GODโ€™S vast creation can cause us to pause and remember whatโ€™s truly important. Ultimately, it reminds us that there is a Creator behind the stunning entrance and exit of the day, One who so LOVED the world He made that He entered it in order to redeem and restore it. โ€”Jeff Olson

I enjoy the world You have created with its variety and color. You and what You have made are awesome, LORD!

Our Daily Bread welcomes writer Jeff Olson! Meet Jeff and all our authors at odb.org/all-authors.

Join GOD in taking delight in all that He has made.

INSIGHT: The heavens and the skies testify to the existence, power, greatness, and wisdom of our Creator. Nature praises and proclaims the majesty of GOD. If creation is so delightful, our Creator must be even more captivating, truly deserving our adoration and worship. The apostle Paul too affirmed that GOD has revealed Himself through His creation: โ€œFor since the creation of the world GODโ€™S invisible qualitiesโ€”his eternal power and divine natureโ€”have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been madeโ€ (Rom. 1:20). Even as we enjoy the beauty of creation, letโ€™s worship its Creator. This week, why not take time to visit a garden or a parkโ€”to see the beauty of creation, to smell the flowers, and to see the GOD who created all things beautiful. Sim Kay Tee
