Inheriting the Gift

Inheriting the Gift

I Cor. 8:6 "There is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live."

Have you ever paddled a canoe across a mountain lake and wondered at the beauty of the scenery? God the Creator made it all just for you. Have you ever gazed up a mountain, from the lake and caught sight of an eagle? His hands made their wings. If you noticed any of these things, did you take a moment to consider who God was thinking of when He made it all?
Millions stand beside the waters that flow through their lives, oblivious to the panoramic slide show God is performing for them. Their busy lifestyles shut them out from the beautiful and they miss the One that makes it possible.
If you’re going through a hard time... if you’re seeking answers to questions you haven’t got the courage to pose... If your life is one long disappointment with occasional joy and no beauty, then you’re missing the secret. Its right before your eyes and all you have to do to find it is stop and look around, without the blinders of hurry and the bondage of disappointment.

God give us courage to stop and gaze on Your Creation, so that we might better appreciate the Creator.
