As I contemplate nature through the seasons, I marvel at the changing display of colors. There are not just yellows, blues and purples, but the entire spectrum of the color wheel; vivid and soft hues to please the senses. Oh how God colors our world; how creative his designs in nature and our lives. He imagined the unimaginable and brought it into existence from nothing. If he can do that, God surely has a creative answer to every problem, situation and question in the world. He knows how to accomplish things, He sees what we do not, and can open doors we don’t even know exist. There is no need to settle for how the world says things have to be or be done. There is another way, which often is a better way. Got questions – God’s go answers. He’s waiting for us to ask Him about it, to take all of life’s happenings to Him in prayer. It benefits us to keep God first and let all of life flow from a place of relationship and intimacy with Him. Doing all with excellence, morality and integrity; as we do – life and lives will never be the same.
I like what King Darius said about Daniel’s God in Daniel 6, “He is the living God, world without end. His kingdom never falls. His rule continues eternally. He is a savior and rescuer. He performs astonishing miracles in heaven and on earth.”
Let us color our world in living color. It’s okay to color outside the world’s lines and into the greater picture of God’s kingdom.
