Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant, harvest, or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them.

Consider the earth, our globe’s weight has been estimated at six sextillion tons. I can’t even imagine that number or what it means, but if I could see it would look like this; the number 6 with 21 zeros. 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Yet it is precisely tilted at 23 degrees; any more or any less and our seasons would be lost in a melted polar flood. Though our globe revolves at the rate of one-thousand miles per hour or twenty-five thousand miles per day or nine million miles per year, none of us tumbles into orbit.

As you stand observing God’s workshop in the dark, let me pose a few questions. If God is able to place the stars in their sockets and suspend the sky like a curtain, do you think it is remotely possible that God is able to guide your life? If your God is mighty enough to ignite the sun, could it be that he is mighty enough to light your path? If he cares enough about the planet Saturn to give it rings or Venus to make it sparkle, is there an outside chance that he cares about to meet your needs?

Stop fussing about the past or future, stay in the moment and focus on all that heavenly glory and praise the Lord, and be grateful for all that you have been given.

Not Perfection, But Forgiveness Christ had no sin, but God made him become sin so that in Christ we could become right with God. It wasn’t the Romans who nailed Jesus to the cross. It wasn’t spikes that held Jesus to the cross. What held him to that cross was his conviction that it was necessary that he become sin-that he who is purely become sin and that the wrath of God is poured down, not upon the creation, but upon the Creator. When the one who knew no sin became sin for us, when the sinless one was covered with all the sins of the world, God didn’t call his army of angels to save him. He didn’t because he knew he would rather give up his son than give up on us. Regardless of what you’ve done, it’s not too late. Regardless of how far you’ve fallen, it’s not too late. It doesn’t matter how low the mistake is, it’s not too late to dig down, pull out that mistake, and then let it go and be free. What makes a Christian a Christian is not perfection but forgiveness.
