Ephesians 3: 14 – 15            NLT

When I think of the wisdom and scope of god’s plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.

In some respects, perhaps, this verse seems unremarkable. The words which captivated me and inspired me to write were, “When I think.” It seems as though Paul stopped to consider what God was doing. Were I to pause, maybe I, too, would be overwhelmed and fall to my knees in humble adoration. Maybe, I just don’t think, enough, about God’s greatness.

I hope you heeded my advice yesterday to write some goals. I think I have happened upon a new one for myself today. Stop and smell the roses, we might say. In other words, it would behoove me to stop and consider the wonder of God’s presence in my life, daily. It is easy to get so busy that we don’t appreciate the scope of God’s touch on our lives. Maybe we even begin to take it for granted. I don’t want to do that. I want to appreciate all the things He is doing for me daily.

When I do pause, I find there are many, many small things being orchestrated for me in addition to the big things. This year is going to be momentous for us and I want to be mentally and emotionally alert enough to see it unfolding. Also, if you believe what I am writing to you today, you can ask Dad to open your eyes. Ask Him to reveal what He is doing. He likes to share with us.

God’s plans and creativity are at work right now. Things are unfolding. Many people will drive past a beautiful view; only some will actually see it. Take time today, and each day, to consider the glory of God’s handiwork in the world and in your life. Observe the magnificent things He is doing, and be blessed.
