Late fall skies ushering in darkness before it’s time, though cause for the days to be shorter, are the most beautiful to me despite my need for light. Pumpkin hues bleeding into purple horizons, crisp air, and the smell of burning wood sweeten the early darkness. Though I often mourn the end of summer, the Master Painter stirs my love for His wisdom. Another season has come. And it comes gloriously reminding me of heaven.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world. (Psalm 19: 1-4)
We don’t have to look very far to see the hope of heaven, the promise, the majesty. All we have to do is watch the sky. The heavens above us, the ones our eyes can see, speak of God’s glory, but His Word is filled with the promise of it for today and a thousand upon thousand years to come in the heavenly Kingdom.
This week we are reading verses on heaven and the heavens. We will lift our eyes and our hearts to the promise of what is now and what is to come.
Jot down these verses or take a screen shot. I hope you will find time daily to look up each one and journal your thoughts. God speaks to us through His Word. Every morning I make a scripture image of each verse, and I post it on Twitter and Instagram. You can follow me on both @wordsbyandylee. I also teach on each verse for about twenty minutes on my Facebook timeline at 8:20 AM ET if you’d like to join the daily broadcast. We’d love to have you. Come be encouraged. Get a shot of faith for your day. and feed your soul with a Bite of Bread.
You are important to Jesus. He loves you. He loves us. All we have to do is look at the evening sky to know. Go watch a sunset.
