Be Warmed By The Sun

“It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.” Psalm 19:6

 

The sun rises in the east and finishes its journey to the west only to begin the journey again. The sun cannot be missed, because even on the cloudiest of days there is still some light. To say there is no sun would be foolish because of its clear existence in the sky. If we fail to see the sun, we can certainly feel its effects. The author’s point was rather poignant at the end of this discourse comparing one’s inability to see God to one’s inability to recognize the sun. 

 

There are many things in this world which point us to God, and it may do us good to understand how we are directing others to God. We may not be able to use such adequate poetry as David did, but can we live out life pointing others to Jesus. First, He must be living in us in such a way that others see Him living out of us. There is a difference between knowing Jesus and living in Him with such enthusiasm that He lives out of us.

 

Wouldn’t it be a great place in our faith if others could recognize God in us as clearly as they see the sun rising in the morning? When others see us, they see the light of His Glory and desire to walk in such hope.

The Greatest Attitude
15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Psalm 31:15
David now proclaims to God that his life is in His hands. This kind of attitude will keep us walking steady without responding negatively to all the evil in the world. This perspective will also keep our heart bent towards God no matter what the cost. David remembers God is in control of not only his life but the very cosmos he is living in.

Many of us struggle through life because of our attitude towards our troubling situations as we grant the circumstances of life permission to guide our attitude. For most, if all threats are gone in life our attitude can remain positive and fortunate. However, the minute we experience an unfortunate occurrence, our attitude can plummet. We have to make daily choices of how we will remain by saying “my times are in your hands.”

It is a matter of choice of how we will or will not be provoked by our troubles. David’s attitude rose above his life-threatening circumstance to realize God is in control. I wonder if he knew deep in his heart, that if the current situation took his life, the battle would be over. God will carry us through all battles of life but only if we allow His involvement. If we choose to dwell on the negative, is there any room for God’s participation in our life? What would happen if we agreed with David and said, “My times are in your hands.”
