I Promise This is the Moment You Need Today

I don’t know about you, but life on earth seems pretty crazy to me sometimes.
It’s a long way from the ground to glory
and it can beat a person down – even a person of faith.
Sometimes, we all just need a break, you know?
So, here’s our break today.
You know that moment in every great movie,
that moment when things look the darkest
and people are truly tempted to despair;
it seems all is lost
when suddenly, the hero appears
and there is hope?
Yeah, let’s have that moment, here today.
Consider how great is our God
And know that hope lives and breathes and moves among us now, right now.
Place your eyes on Jesus and take refreshment from the sight of Him today.
Just that. Just that, loved ones.
“Praise the Lord, my soul.
Lord my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment;
he stretches out the heavens like a tent
and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.
He makes the clouds his chariot
and rides on the wings of the wind.
He makes winds his messengers,
flames of fire his servants.
He set the earth on its foundations;
it can never be moved.” Psalm 104:1-5 (ESV)
“May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
 may the Lord rejoice in his works—
he who looks at the earth, and it trembles,
 who touches the mountains, and they smoke.
I will sing to the Lord all my life;
  I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
 as I rejoice in the Lord.” Psalm 104:31-34 (ESV)
“For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, ‘To the unknown god.’ What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you.
The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man,
nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.
And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,
that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us,
for “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’ Acts 17:23-28 (ESV)
Do you see Him?
Isn’t He great and able to do even more than we imagine?
In him we live and move and have our being – so inhale, exhale, just breathe Him in and be renewed.
