When Elihu described God as one who comes in golden splendor, he drew Job’s attention away from his dismal circumstances and toward the awesome majesty of God. Sometimes we need a change in perspective—to take our eyes off ourselves and put them on our awesome God and his creation.
If you’re going through a dark time or you’ve lost your joy in living, look for God’s golden splendor. You can see evidence in the sun, the sky, the intricacy of creation. God’s glory is even more awesome than what you are able to see! Experiencing God’s creation can change your perspective on the awesome Creator (see Romans 1:20).
