The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
The author of the above psalm is David who is written about in the Old Testament. He was the shepherd boy who became king over all of Israel and whom God describes as a “man after my own heart.” (Acts 13:22)
David reminds us that all around us creation is testifying to the greatness of God our creator. The challenge is to take a moment in our busy lives to slow down long enough to notice, and to listen. The God who made us is powerful and loving and good. We are surrounded daily by the beauty of his creation that we get to enjoy as his kids. Whether we take time to notice the morning sunrise or the night sky, or any other aspect of creation in the middle of our day, it confirms what we can know about God. His eternal power and divine nature are clearly seen (Romans 1:20).
