Luke 5:26, NIV: Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were
filled with awe and said, "We have seen remarkable things today."
Contemplate your life. Consider how you are made. Recall how you have lived your
life, whether for God or for yourself. Reflect on your sin and be awestruck by
His grace. He knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. He has
watched over you each day, provided for your needs, and sheltered you under His
wing. In your sin, He has seen you—but has cast your sin into the sea of
forgetfulness. He has a plan for your life today, tomorrow, and into eternity.
Your life may seem to you a bit mundane, but you are a child of God. Your place
with Him is everlasting. You have been given the gift of eternal life through
Jesus, and are free to live a life filled with joy and peace. You are
blessed—blessed in ways you can think of, and blessed in ways you cannot even
imagine. Wonder of wonders—isn’t He still so very remarkable?
