Scripture for Today: Psalm 108:4-5 “For great is Your love, higher than the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let Your glory be over all the earth.”

The Christmas season is all about the red and green. Anytime I wear these two colors during the year I may hear the comment that I am wearing Christmas colors. Nature has no such seasonal restrictions! Red and green are part of the skies as seen in this photo of the “green flash” at sunset. It is a rare event that few have the privilege of seeing. This flash of green above the upper rim of the sun’s disk only lasts a few seconds. Refraction bends the light, the atmosphere working like a weak prism. I look for it but have yet to see this colorful display.
Today’s verse exalts and praises God for His love, faithfulness and glory. They are seen in the beauty of the heavens. From all over the earth one can look up and see His glory in the expanse and resplendence of the sky! The red and green sky is one more reminder of His faithfulness at Christmas time. He was faithful to His promise to send salvation in the person of Jesus. He proved His love in putting on flesh to walk among us. Jesus is now exalted to the highest place at the right hand of God (Acts 5:31 and Phil. 2:9). He is higher than the heavens!
His faithful love was shown all over the skies, in the star of Bethlehem and in the appearance of the angels. He continues to remind me when I am not feeling it. He lifts my head to look up! He is faithful and He is love.
Lord, remind me again today.
