The heavens shall vanish like smoke

Isaiah 51:6-8

6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished. 7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. 8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.


Heavenly Father, we thank you that our salvation is secured in your Son, Jesus Christ. Our lives are fleeting, and our days are short, but you are the eternal, everlasting God who made everything. We thank you that you have seen fit to give us an eternal home, a new life in you that will not end, but will exist in your presence. We observe the beauty of your creation in these images of celestial objects, yet let not our hearts be drawn away from you or tempted by their beauty. Let us acknowledge you in all of our ways and find great joy in the beauty of your creation while giving you all the glory. We pray that you would have mercy upon us, forgive us of our sins, and clothe us in your righteousness that we may be good messengers of your Word to the world around us.
