Believe In Something Crazy
The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both. — Proverbs 20:12
I remember as a teenager cruising around with my grandfather one California night in his 1958 Chevy Apache truck. Man, I miss that truck. One day I will own one again. And we were peacefully cruising along like men do — saying nothing. The windows were rolled down. The moon was bright. You could smell a little salt in the air with a gentle breeze. Out the front windshield, you could see the majestic Pacific Ocean. Then out of the silence, my grandfather says this:
"Son, on a night like tonight, you would have to be crazy not to believe that someone, God, created all this."
I will never forget that comment, maybe because it was such a special moment for two men to share. But what I took from my grandfather's statement was that when we look at things in this life, we can look with a natural eye, or we can look with a supernatural eye. And gentlemen, most of the time, we look only with a natural eye.
And that's what this proverb declares today. It clarifies that everything in this life has a supernatural origin. But the writer goes one step further. He explains that not only does everything in this life have a supernatural beginning, but God also gives mankind the ability to hear, see, and enjoy all these things.
So today, as you are cruising about your day. Look around for a moment at all the things God has done. And then remember he has also given your flesh and your spirit the ability to enjoy them. And then do this — worship him. It is the only proper response to the Originator of all things.
ASK THIS: Have you stopped to worship God's majesty today?
DO THIS: Worship him. Try the song below.
PRAY THIS: God, I worship you for your creation and allow me the ability to see and hear it as well. You are crazy good to me.
PLAY THIS: Goodness Of God.
