“For since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes have been made clearly intelligible through the things that have been made. (His handiworks). Romans 1:20

Standing on the beach, wind blowing through my hair, the sound of the waves splashing up on shore, the sand under my feet and the misty fog that comes with a warm morning, I’m still amazed at the awesome way God reveals things to me.

I watch as the waves of the high tide sweep away all the marks of the past. The footprints that were there in the sand just a second ago, are now gone. I bend over to write in the sand and a wave comes, now my letters are very faint, another wave and they are completely gone. The waves don’t just take away or clean up, they also at times leave gifts on the shore. They leave shells and sponges for me to collect and investigate. They reveal sand dollars that were just underneath the sand in the water, but as the waves pull back and the tide goes out, all of these treasures are revealed for me to enjoy.

The same way God is with us, every morning He sweeps through with new mercy, we pray and He forgives and forgets our sins and leaves us with a clean slate. The Holy Spirit blows in our lives and shows and teaches us practical applications on the Word to use in our everyday lives. God does even more than this though, He leaves us with treasures, gifts we can enjoy. He blesses us with favor as we go through our day, with people that love us, friends and family, a home, a job, children-He is so good to us! He gives us Spiritual gifts that are so precious-anointing that allows us to accomplish what we never could on our own.

The ocean is so huge, I strain to see something out there. Looking closely I see a boat, that I know is large, yet seems so small in the distance. The clouds seem smaller, the sea gulls and the other birds are small. I again am in awe of how this relates to God in my life. God is as vast as the ocean, He is huge, all consuming, compared to Him everything is so small. He is more powerful than the tide and more cleansing than the water. He is a great and mighty God.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. Psalm 19:1
