Living in the confines of four sterile walls stifles our senses. Americans spend 95% of their time indoors. Instead of being surrounded by the God-made wonders of evening sunsets, hovering dragonflies, dew-covered spider webs, and the twinkle of a bazillion stars, we spend our days inundated by plastic, steel, and man-made fiber. Where is the majesty? Where’s the declaration of his glory? Our climate-controlled world denies us an up-close, personal extravaganza of sensations created to draw our attention to God. As you plan your day away, consider spending time outside. Fresh air is good for the body – and the soul.
For the Lord is a great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
