THE ART OF ADMIRATION
Later in the day I read one writer’s opinion as to how the ‘lost art of admiration’ had affected the production of art and literature. I stopped to muse on this and considered my recent outburst of admiration for the handiwork of my Father. Generally, do I take Him and His great works for granted? Does His care for me go unacknowledged, unnoticed, un-admired? May it never be so! If I become complacent with the wonderful world my Father creates for me and lose my awe and admiration for all that He has done and will do, then surely I will also lose my sense of closeness and fellowship with Him.
There is a remarkable, busy, useful world all around us that we simply cannot see without the help of a microscope. It was all created by Yahshua and even the minutest insect has a purpose in His overall system of life.
When Yahshua was sending His disciples out to work for Him one of the things He said was, What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to [Yahweh] than a whole flock of sparrows (Matthew 10: 29-31, NLT).
As you go out into this week remember that He who took time to create the universe is watching over you and that your worth to Him is beyond understanding. Allow yourself some time to lose yourself in wonder and love.
A prayer thought: Yahweh open my eyes to all that You do, all that You are, and all that You have created, so that I may continually be lost in wonder, admiration, thankfulness and praise.
