God's Word in the Sky

Last night Vic and I went for a walk in our complex to watch the evening summer sky. I never tire of the sky, how beautifully it displays God's glory and splendor.
And how fitting are God's words.

"Look to the heavens and see; And behold the clouds— They are higher than you." (Job 25:5)


"It (Jesus throne) shall be established forever like the moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky." Selah ...(Psa.89:37)


He answered and said to them, "When it is evening you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red" (Matt.16:2)

"Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him." (Psa. 68:4)


" Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory."
(Mark 13:26)

"There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to help you, and in His excellency on the clouds." (Duet.33:26)

I love posts like this! (My fav. part of this one was...when I envisioned, like God's throne, the moon's stability and its ever watchful glowing eye over us-when it's dark. Could it be God's way of foreshadowing the fact that he watches over us even when we feel dark and lonely inside?)

Gorgeous images, Julie, and the quotes to match...
