Psalm 57:2  ”I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.“ (CSB)

The moon arose last night in all its golden glory. The Snow Moon is the farthest away from Earth of any of the full moons this year due to the timing of its orbit. Even so, it puts on quite a show.

Even the most distant moon has a purpose. The smallest full moon of the year reflects God’s glory with beauty and wonder. 

Moons do not bear their own flame. They do not create their own light. Yet this small full moon, so rich in color, so elegant in its glide path across the sky, says more than its size can contain. “The heavens declare the glory of God,” (Psalm 19:1). 

God has a purpose for even the smallest moon. God has a purpose for you. Seek his path and his provision. Hide in him for protection. Call on him when others would trample you. God will send his faithful love and truth (verse 3). 

Pray with our emotional kindred of ages past in these words of David:

”God, be exalted above the heavens; let your glory be over the whole earth.“
(Verse 5)

David declares he will awaken the dawn with his song of praise (verses 7 and 8). Why does he sing? Why can we? Verse 10 says, 

”For your faithful love is as high as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches the clouds.“

The Snow Moon wanes. The sun arises with its increasing brightness and warmth. The whole earth is charmed and warmed by God’s gifts of light. 

David’s bottom line reminds us to enjoy the show and to remember the one who places all things where they belong to brighten all of heaven while accomplishing his purposes.

”God, be exalted above the heavens; let your glory be over the whole earth.“
(Verse 11)

I will awaken the dawn with my song of praise.

Our Father, for small moons and hot suns, we give you praise. You illuminate our nights and our days. You wrap us in your light and warm us with your love. Lead us into full expression of your purpose for our lives today. May we reflect your glory everywhere we go and in all we do. Amen.

Daily D – Isaiah 1:18-20

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land. But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
