Reading the Word
Psalm 19:1–6 (ESV)
1 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. 2 Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. 4 Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, 5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. 6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
Understanding and Applying the Word
The psalmist tells us that the world around us shows us how wonderful God is. When we look at the night sky we see how vast the universe is. The number of stars visible to even the naked eye is astounding. Also, when we consider the orderliness of all we see we come to a realization of how great and awesome the God behind it all must be.
There is no escaping God’s glory. It is all around us. His beauty, his power, and his care are evident in his creation. Let us take time to look around and stand amazed at the One who made it and watches over it. He is an awesome God!
