Think of the greatest artists of all time and their contribution to history. Michaelangelo, Picasso, The Beatles, Beethovan. We celebrate the beauty and life these people have brought to culture through their genius and devotion.
But there is a far greater artist than these. We live inside a work of art that paints something new above us at the close of every day. Life in this work of art sings melodies to us at every corner. It moves and sways with the currents of the wind and conceals life in the depths of unsearchable waters.
Have you ever stopped to consider the joy and brilliance of God to create this work of art that continues day to day to create works of art itself?
God created creative life.
So stop. Take a breath and look around you. God is speaking to you in the wisdom of every cell in creation. He’s whispering to you a love poem written in every colour imaginable in a universe of unsearchable cosmic beauty.
Don’t limit God to just words on a page or to intangible distance. Walk with him in the garden and feel his whispering breeze against your skin.
You’re enveloped in God’s life. You’re his object of affection. He is closer than you know.
