“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nore are there words, whose voice is not heard.” Psalm 19.. the first few verses.
“Stop the car. Check out that blossom!”
“If I pull over, can you take a photo of those leaves?”
These are lines that my family is very used to and they know that I will just keep going on and on about that missed photo opportunity if we don’t stop.
Every single leaf. Every single tendril. Every single mottled patch of bark. Every single petal.
God made them all perfectly, in one day and there were no flaws in his design.
In Psalm 19, David is talking about the sky that he could see with a naked eye. He didn’t know about the vast heavens and solar systems that God had created behind what he saw each day. Wow, I don’t think you would have been able to keep David from composing poems if he knew all that!
I like to think that Psalm 19 also can be related to the created world and right now, especially the flowering world.
The flowers declare the glory of God, and the trees proclaim his handiwork…
Take some time out each day to appreciate what a wonderful Father Creator we have. There is only ONE Creator, there has never been one since and there will never be one in the future.
To know that my Father, the Creator was able to (and did) create all the flowers and trees in one day just blows my mind. Believing this is just another reminder that He is all powerful and is in control of my life. Looking up is a reminder that I need to trust in him and his righteous plan for my life.
Allow God to bless your day with the beauty that surrounds you.
Warren Wiersbe (one of my favourite commentators) writes about Psalm 19 in the following beautiful way:
“The existence of creation implied the existence of a Creator, and the nature of creation implied that He was wise enough to plan it and powerful enough to execute His plan and maintain what He had made. So complex a universe demands a Creator who can do anything, who knows everything and who is present everywhere. But even more, David knew that God was speaking to the inhabitants of the earth by means of His creation. Creation is a ‘wordless book” that everyone can read because it needs no translation. God speaks through creation day after day and night after night; His speech ‘pours out’; silently, abundantly and universally.”
What have you seen today that reminded you of the Glory of God?
