Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and glory are in His sanctuary. – Psalms 96:6 NIV
We can’t be 100% all the time. We are human. The Lord knows that we are weak and that we need His strength. When we take time to rest from our work and glorify Him, our burnout subsides. We can heal.
There is a kind of splendor in the ordinary. In every flower and creature that God formed.
The Lord is majestic in that He took on human form to save us. Christ’s death on the cross must have been excruciating. I sometimes wonder if God the Father could have spared Jesus from the pain He endured. How humiliating it must have been to die a criminal’s death. He had the reassurance that He would rise again. He knew it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Jesus relates to our suffering because He knew what pain felt like. He endured it all for us. What an incredible sacrifice. Amen.
