Kids4Truth Clubs Daily Devotional – od Is Great

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised” (Psalm 48:1).

I have always enjoyed the changing of seasons. Perhaps the changing of the leaves in autumn makes fall my favorite time of year. Maybe I enjoy beautiful nature scenes because my father taught me to love them through his artwork. But I cannot help but praise the Lord as I look at a hill or mountain of changing trees. I cannot help but say, “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name” or sing “How Great Thou Art.”

Just about every year from 1975 to 2002, my family made a trip to War Eagle, Arkansas, in the Ozark Mountains for an arts and craft show where my father showed his work. Artists and craftspeople came from all around to display their goods. But my family didn’t go for the fine art or the crafts; we went to be refreshed and to enjoy nature. One of the things I liked most was the breathtaking view the Lord always gave us on our trip.

Think of all the things the Lord has made that we can see in nature all around us. Massive snowcapped mountains jutting up into the sky. Millions and millions of stars that shine down at us like little pinpricks of brilliant light. The blazing sun to light our world by day, and the softer, gentler moon that floats across the sky at night. Autumn leaves with their red, yellow, and brown hues. Massive canyons and rushing waterfalls and forests filled with mighty redwoods. There are so many remarkable things the Lord has created, and when we see them we cannot help but think about His creativity, His power, and His greatness.

Praise the Lord, for He is great!

My response:

» Do I praise God when I look at things He has made?

» Do I take time to tell God how great He is?
