She was made for this – as was I. As are you.

One of the best things about being a child of God is to know what your Father is like. You see, we don’t live in a world where He is missing and can’t be known, but with every molecule He is making His glory clear to the children of this world. With every blistering sunrise as it creeps over a distant horizon to every drop of rain that falls He is making one thing very clear – He alone is God.

Not only is He telling us that He is God, but also that He is good.

I remember entering into the room where I would ask my Bride to marry me; I was shaking with excitement and humbled to tears. With everything that happened that day I remember one thing was very clear, that God was there. He was there as He always is, making and molding us until He stepped back and said, “It is good. It is very good.”

And good it has been! And by faith, it will always be.

I have been married for about two months now, and I cannot begin to draw up all of the sweetness from the depths of this joy. She is kind and sweet, bold and wise, perfect and perfectly flawed, acquainted with truth and grace. There is no glimpse at a sunrise or galaxy that paints a more beautiful picture of the majesty of God as there is in the company of my Bride. She was made for this – as was I. As are you.

We were made to reflect the image of the knowable God. Our hands were made for grace and our mouths were made for praise. We are His workmanship. We are ambassadors in the foreign land of this world to make the majesty of the true King known.

As we approach another day, how are you looking for the knowable God? Is He there in your day, or is He hidden? Are you looking? Better still, how are you the display? How are you carrying the torch of freedom into the barren land of shame that most of us live in? God is so greatly beyond compare, making beauty from the ashes! Do you feel like ash? Oh how marvelous and terrific you are and made for His glory! Be still. Be grateful.
