Beholding the Lord’s Possessions

Flint Hills 2013We enjoyed a couple of days of ministry and visiting family in Kansas City last weekend.  On our way back to Wichita, we pulled off to stretch our legs and take a few pictures in the Flint Hills.  I have driven through the Flint Hills countless times and I never tire of the beauty of what God has created there; an ocean of rolling hills, as far as the eye can see.  If you strain your eyes, in the picture above you’ll notice a line of little dots (cattle) on the distant landscape.  It reminded me of the words of the Lord, in Psalm 50, verses 10&11;

For every beast of the forest is mine,
   the cattle on a thousand hills.
I know all the birds of the hills,
   and all that moves in the field is mine.

What a blessing and privilege to have beheld some of the wondrous possessions of the Lord in this way.  He established it all and owns it all.  What a glorious Creator!
