The Heavens Declare

 1The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
 2Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
 3There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
 4Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
 5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
 6His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 

The Heavens Declare

Man has gone to great ends in our time to present a world in which there is no God. Yet, Psalms 19 quickly refutes man's efforts with these words from David, "The heavens declare the glory of God."

Is there a God? One only has to look around to receive a resounding, "Yes!" Where is the evidence? Look up! The sky above is filled with stars and planets set upon their courses by God, who created them in all of their intricacies and set them upon their preordained paths.

But, that is not all! Look around you. As day follows day, and night follows night, we see a world of intricate order, marvelous in its depth and beauty. Who established the laws of nature? Did they come about by accident? Who established the balance of nature? Did it just happen by chance?

No man is excluded from God's revelation of himself in this world He has created; there is no speech nor language that does not understand. Educated man may attempt to explain away God's amazing work of creation, but, in their heart of hearts, no one can gaze upon even a simple rose without understanding that this rose is a marvelous creation of God.

This is our God! He has created and dressed this world in all of its beauty, as a dwelling place for man. Yet, this is only the beginning! When man shook his angry fist in the face of God, God provided a path back to Him through his only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

May God lift our hearts to him this day, that we will not be so overcome by the "ordinary-ness" of life that we do not see Him in all of his power and glory.

The heavens declare the glory of God, and so must we!

God Bless You,
