Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.”
I have always absolutely loved Autumn! I love to decorate for the season. They have the new decor in the stores already to purchase, but I keep telling myself that I am sure I have enough for this year! I love the colors of the trees! My favorite Fall is when the air gets crisp with the cold and it’s dry, not rainy so the leaves are vibrant and the rain hasn’t washed them all off the trees before you can enjoy them. It’s great when you can throw on a hoodie and go out and walk through the leaves and just enjoy the beauty of it all!
While it isn’t quite Autumn here right now, no matter where you are or what your season may be there’s always amazing beauty in God’s handiwork all you have to do is take a moment and look around! What an amazing God who cares about every detail, just look at the trees, or the mountains, or a river, or an ocean, or just look at the flowers, or your favorite animal ~ the beauty just goes on and on.
As careful as God was with all of the details in creation on earth, He was even more detailed when it came to you. Every little thing about you was designed for His purpose. Now, satan will do his best to mess with that so you have to be on guard and protect your mind and body. I am constantly amazed that people seem to think they can eat and drink whatever they choose and expect their body to function the way it was created to function. (No, I am not suggesting you have to be vegetarian or vegan, lol). You would never stuff fast food or soda in your gas tank and expect your car to run right. We all have things that we could probably improve in what we are eating in order to get the maximum mileage and performance out of our bodies, but the point is, don’t allow satan to take you out by giving your body garbage to run on. The same goes for your mind, be very careful what you feed your mind and what you allow your children to feed their minds with. Satan is after your mind so you must guard your thoughts as well. He will do everything he can to make you believe that you aren’t enough, or you are too much, and his list of lies goes on and on so you must guard your heart and mind from him and his lies. Seek God and the truth He has to say about you! He created you with all the potential you need to accomplish what He is asking you to do. Seek Him and ask Him to help you guard your heart and mind, He will be happy to do that. It takes constantly surrendering to Him. Remember there is a war going on, one you can’t see, but you certainly are affected by it. The spiritual battle is real and intense, but as you follow God you can know that no matter what comes your way, He sees, and He has your back. His answers and vindication will come! Wait for it! Don’t underestimate the amazing creation that is you! Don’t down play who God created you to be. No matter who you are God created you with a purpose. No matter how young or old you are, He is calling you to something! Go after it and whether it is to be a stay at home Mom, or a school teacher, you work from home, bus driver, waitress, preacher, missionary, truck driver, CEO, attorney, doctor, a volunteer ~ whatever it may be, do it as though every moment of every day, every person you are dealing with you are doing it for Him. Be the best you can be for God.
Ask God today to guide you into all He has for you. You are important to Him. Every detail, every heartache, every success ~ it all matters to Him because He loves you! He created you for Himself, you don’t need anyone else’s approval. Choose to follow Him into all He created you to be and then you can walk in His confidence and strength in all that you do!
