let those with eyes to see

Isn't it interesting to listen and watch the world around us and the people who interact with it?  We look at the changing seasons and see God at work.  I marvel at a thunderstorm as it forms and I can imagine the psalmist proclaiming God in the handiwork of heaven.  A child examines a wooly worm or a butterfly with a sense of wonderment.  It seems to me that all of creation declares the presence of the Creator.  God speaks through the order and symmetry, the design and awesome beauty that surrounds us in the natural world.

The psalmist said, "the heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." (Psalm 19:1)

How is it that some see and some do not?  Is that what Jesus is speaking of as he teaches his disciples in chapter 13, "though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand."  Let us continue to study God's word and seek him in prayer that he might give us eyes to see and ears to hear and the spirit of discernment that it might be said of us as Jesus said to his disciples, "the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you."  And then, let us be ready to speak the word of truth to all whom God trusts to us.

Praying that you will see the hand of God at work this day.  Blessings to you.
