I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
~George Washington Carver
Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God’s Law and Prophets and this is what you get.
~ Matthew 7:12
So Will I – Hillsong United
My devotional is simple today.
What I want is for people to know God, in the fullness of God’s beauty. What I want is for them to notice that nature though broken, lifts its praise on every breeze.
What I want for them is for them to know, absorb, breathe in just how much God loves them. And act accordingly, not from law, not from rules, not from the way it is supposed to be, but to act as God’s agent, in love, in truth, in song.
When I heard this song, it filled me up with so much more than this world ever had to offer, but I began to see and hear nature in a whole different way, once more.
If I spent more time in praise, I would spend less time in criticism, hurt, fear or anger.
May you breathe him in today, in a way you’ve never known him before. If you are a minister of music, I pray that you are lifted as you sing, teach, play and are able to worship as His breath fills you. And I pray that your actions are measured in that love no matter how hard your task, or how easy.
Because of Him,
