I stood in the surf, beholding the waves as they rose up and crashed onto the beach (almost knocking me over) and thanking God for His steadfastness and faithfulness.
I listened the roar of the sea, remembering the that He alone quiets the roaring of these waves, God is god of physics and meteorology and He, alone, is good.
I looked and saw the vastness of the ocean, and remembered that my hope in Him can be that immense.
I gave glory to God.
To my right I noticed a lump emerging from the receding water. The next wave covering and pushed it up the beach (we were almost at high tide and the beach was almost covered). I waded over to see and was greatly rewarded by God. I received this amazing gift…
This will become a reminder of those moments of contemplation of the greatness of God and remind me to give God glory!
Stop, friend, and as did the psalmist, to give God glory!
“Not to us oh Lord, not to us, but unto your name alone be all the glory! (Ps. 115:1)
