Two of our favorite places in all of the earth are the mountains and the seashore. We love the fresh air, cool breezes and beautiful colors of the fall season in the mountains. The constant movement of the tides to and fro and the endless waves breaking on the sandy shore are Godly music to our ears. We leave the troubles of the world behind when we visit these sanctuaries created by the Lord. What a privilege to know that God as Creator put all of this in place for His children.
Psalm 95:1-5 (NIV) – Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. 3 For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. 4 In His hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. 5 The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land. 6 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; 7 for He is our God and we are the people (sheep) of his pasture, the flock under His care.
How can we fail to give continual praise and thanksgiving to such a great God? He is the Lord … our Maker. He is our Shepherd and we are under His care. He created and owns everything … the depths of the earth, the seas … even The Mountain Peaks Belong to Him!
Oh God, with Thanksgiving Praise we give You the glory and honor for who You are! You are the one and only true God. All others are false gods and puppets of Satan. You are the Maker and Owner of all that exists in the heavens and the earth. Thank You for being our Shepherd and loving us in spite of our sins. And thank you Jesus for coming to earth in the form of a man … the only man to live a perfect and sinless life. Amen and Amen.
