The God who made this sunset knew it would last but a moment! He made it anyway. He realized people would see this beautiful scene and immediately forget. He knew others wouldn’t pay attention. He knew some would see the beauty and remember and others would see the beauty, savor it and realize from where it came. Best of all, he knew some would believe he made this sunset for them out of pure love and love him back in return.
I, by the grace of God, am one of those people who believe he makes the sunset out of love for us. Furthermore, I believe he, who holds the power of the sun in his hands, gives us power and grace to overcome all of our trials, adversities, and struggles and to do all he has called us to do each and every day.
Unfortunately, I, being at times, like those not remembering the sun or even noticing it, behave in ways that don’t show my belief in GOD. I act as if he isn’t there waiting and I don’t pay attention or heed him. How foolish I am when I forget the majesty of the Lord as revealed in this sun and turn my own way when his power is readily available, more miraculous than this sun, and far surpassing any of my ways. How silly of us of to trust in ourselves when this GOD is waiting to help and we only need ask.
This God is a God we can rely on. This GOD wants to help us. This God has a call on your and my life. This God is where to turn at all times. This God can always and in all ways be trusted. So lets not forget to turn to THIS GOD. After all, he reminds us of himself each day, in may ways, including by the setting of the sun!
