Theme of the Week: The God Who Still Speaks
Bible Verse: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1
Scripture Reading: Psalm 19:1-14
We happened to be up one night while camping. We looked up and gasped. Atmospheric conditions were perfect. We’d seen stars before but never like that. We lay on the beach and stared at the sky for an hour, marveling at the beauty of God’s creation and the vastness of the universe.
The size of the universe boggles the mind. Earth is just one of about a hundred billion planets in our galaxy, which is just one of about two trillion galaxies in the universe. Not only is it vast, but it’s beautiful. I never get tired of seeing stars, comets, and sunsets.
According to Psalm 19, the heavens preach God’s glory to us. They’re eloquent if we take the time to listen. If all we had were the stars, that would be enough for us to know that God exists and that what he’s created is beautiful.
Electric lights prevent me from seeing stars like this. It seems an appropriate metaphor for how we tend to live a lot of the time: unaware of God’s handiwork that’s all around us, oblivious to the message that the stars loudly proclaim. But if we listen carefully, we can hear the message the stars proclaim. And we can then respond to this message by worshiping their Maker.
God proclaims his glory to us through nature.
