Suggested Reading: Psalm 97
“The heavens proclaim His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.” Psalm 97:6
“How could anyone deny Your existence, God?” I wondered as I gazed at the morning sky.
He didn’t respond with, “Yeah, I know!” In fact what I heard surprised me.
“You know, it’s a matter of science,” the voice said, “it’s just light streaming through drops of water reflecting a prism of color.”
God was giving me a glimpse of how unbelievers see things. I see Glory; they see science. It made sense in a way it never has before. I’ve always known science explains many things that awe and inspire, but I’ve always attributed that science to God. The conversation I had with God opened my eyes to how deceived people are.
It’s not as simple as I think it should be.
I’m more motivated now to show grace to my unbelieving friends-instead of criticism. Most of all I’m inspired to pray for them and be a stronger witness with my life. They need to see my life transformed, not hear my words of condemnation. Speaking truth in love requires a fine line of discernment, but its possible with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The heavens absolutely declare the glory of God but my unbelieving friends may never see it if I don’t consistenly walk the walk.
Prayer: Jesus, forgive me for not loving in action and truth as you’ve commanded. ( 1 John 3:18) Unite my attitude, actions, and speech harmoniously to declare a greater testimony of your grace than the brightest rainbow in the heavens.
