Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Observant.
Observant – being “quick to notice or perceive; alert” (dictionary.com).
God’s activity can be seen all around us as He is always at work. The questions become: Do we have eyes which will see? Are we observant to all that He is doing?
The word observant brings to mind this Scripture:
“Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law.” (Psalm 119:18, NASB)
Will we see God –
in each snowflake as it falls?
in the clouds as they float across the sky?
in the eyes of a child?
in the expanse of the ocean?
in the rise and fall of the ocean waves?
in the colors of a rainbow?
in the smile of a loved one?
in the sunrise each morning?
in His Word each time we open the pages?
“Come and see the works of God, Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of man.” (Psalm 66:5, NASB)
In seeing the works of God, we discover His awesome deeds towards us.
May we be observant to His activity each day.
