I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles.
Psalms 145:5 (NLT)
I remember leading a five-day hike in the mountains—what a treat for a young man born and raised in the flat terrain of Detroit, Michigan. And yet, I noticed on the second day that I had spent most of my time looking down at the trail, making sure I would not trip on the large tree roots or twist my ankle on loose rocks. All around me was some of nature’s most magnificent scenery, and all I took in was the subtle shades of green and brown on the ground in front of me. How is it we can be so close to something so glorious and not take the time to capture its essence? David knew the answer. He wrote, “I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles.” David took the time to devote focused attention to God and His wonderful attributes. He dared to stop and reflect, to ponder on God’s almighty power, splendor, and miracles. And when he did, he was a better man for it. You see, focusing on God does not make God powerful; no more than my looking at the mountains makes them majestic. It only allows me to see and know the mysteries of what is already there. Today, don’t miss another moment. Don’t let another day go by without seeing and focusing on all that God is and all the love He has for you. He is majestic, He is full of glorious splendor, and His miracles abound.
Father, I want to know You and Your glorious splendor. Help me stop and meditate on You. Help me focus my attention, love, and devotion toward You. Guide me into a deeper knowledge of You, I pray.
