The Stupendous Contrast

New Day, June 23, 2015

“But you, O LORD, are enthroned forever…

Of old you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.

They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment.

You will change them like a robe…but you are the same, and your years have no end.”

Psalm 102:12, 25-26

Yahweh is the stupendous contrast to everything bound to time and space. Universes and galaxies, affliction and evil, enemies and wars, boredom and aloneness fall limp in His presence. Thankfully, in His compassion, the Commander and Creator “regards the prayer of the destitute and does not despise their prayer” (17). Today’s covered horizon and hidden sun cannot conceal the “work of his hands” (25), nor His Kingship (12), nor the anticipation of forever-life in His presence (28). Now, Father, I can go and rejoice in the day You have given.
