The Sunset 

Sometimes sunsets make me pull over and take pictures, and I often see others who do the same too. People tend to stop what they are doing to enjoy the beautiful view. Have you ever wondered why people are so amazed by the setting of the sun? The Psalms offer a clue. The psalmist wrote of God ordering the sun to praise its Creator. And wherever the rays shine across the earth, people are moved to praise God for the awesome, spectacular sight. 

The beauty of nature speaks to our souls as few things do. It not only has the capacity to stop us in our tracks and captivate our attention, but it also has the power to turn our focus to the maker of this beauty, our lord and savior. 

Today, the wonder of God’s vast creation can cause us to pause and remember what’s truly important. Ultimately, it reminds us that there is a Creator behind the stunning sunsets, colourful flowers, and the entrance and sunset of the day. One who so loved the world He made that He entered it to redeem and restore it. Hallelujah! 

Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars. Psalm 148:3 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank you for your wonderful creation. Father, I enjoy the world you have created with its variety and colours. You and what You have made are awesome, Lord thanks so much for creating beauty like the sunset, the colourful flowers and man’s diversity amid chaos. In Christ’ name Amen
