Facing Heaven


The Bible tells us that rocks can cry out, hills can clap their hands, the trees of the forest shout His glory, creation groans, and all of this is in acknowledgment and praise of who God is. The whole earth is full of His glory. God made even the flowers to gaze upon Him high in His heaven. Have you gazed at Him today?

I’m facing heaven, heart toward You,
I come before You—all of me.
Take my life—surrendered heart,
I’m facing heaven, heart toward You. 

Psalm 145:3 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. 

Luke 19:37-40 Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: 

‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!’

Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 

And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” 

But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” 

Isaiah 55:12
“For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands”.
