Here, the psalmist meditates on the timelessness of God compared to the limits of our human existence. Yet, even as short-lived and insignificant as we might feel our lives are in the grand scheme of things, we are called to live as God’s children – inspired by the Spirit to have an impact on the world around us. Every day that we have is a gift with which we can reflect the God-image within us, bringing honor and glory to the One who has created and is creating us day by day.
What mark can you leave on the world today? What word might make a difference in someone else’s day? How can you best use the day you’ve been given to give glory to God?
Take some time to gaze at the night sky tonight and meditate on the timelessness of God’s love, mercy, and majesty.
