1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4 Their 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,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His 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.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
This is such a beautiful Psalm. It teaches us that no matter where we are on earth, or who we are, that we can all look up and see God’s glory in the heavens and in His creation. This means that His creation is evidence of His existence. We see it every day. Often, we wonder at it or are in awe of it’s beauty. This leads some to worship creation instead of the creator – such as those who worship mother nature in the new age philosophies or those that follow astrology. Instead, we should understand God’s awesome and infinite knowledge and power when we see creation. He loves us so very much. He created you for a reason. He has a purpose and plan for you.
Although we can see God’s handywork in creation, creation can’t testify to his salvation plan for you. His Word can…the Bible. Read it, all of it, without prejudice and you will learn of his love and mercy for you which he showed when Jesus came and died on the cross to take the punishment for your sins and was resurrected to show us that we can have eternal life too if we believe in Him and confess our sins and turn from them. Don’t wait. Jesus is coming back soon.
