so much wonder



From the rising of the sun to its setting
The name of the Lord is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations;
His glory is above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God,
Who is enthroned on high,
Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in heaven and in the earth?

Psalm 113:3-6

I see the vibrant brushstrokes of a sunset like this, and I am breathless, wordless. Yet the Bible says that to God, looking upon something earthly—even as magnificent as twilight over the mountains—is an act of humbling Himself. His glory is above the heavens; He is enthroned on high, holy, beautiful, and incomparable to anyone or anything else. To come before His throne is not a right that I deserve, or even a privilege that I earn. It is a gift of grace—and it should leave me in the silence of undefiled awe.

  1. I was just reading today in Jesus Calling about how God loves it when His children are attuned to the beauty of nature, because it reflects the beauty of His holiness. This sunset is gorgeous.
