The Heavens Declare

August 7, 2012 — Leave a comment

Today, I feel as though I am going to limit my words – but rather, let this video and the following Psalm do the talking.  The World, and all its glory, declare the amazing power of our God.  Watch this video – read Psalm 19 – and give Glory that we get to have fellowship with the maker of all this:

THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. 2  Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night shows forth knowledge.3  There is no speech nor spoken word [from the stars]; their voice is not heard.4  Yet their voice [in evidence] goes out through all the earth, their sayings to the end of the world. Of the heavens has God made a tent for the sun, 5  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; and it rejoices as a strong man to run his course.6  Its going forth is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the ends of it; and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from the heat of it.7  The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the [whole] person; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.8  The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure and bright, enlightening the eyes.9  The [reverent] fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.10  More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb.11  Moreover, by them is Your servant warned (reminded, illuminated, and instructed); and in keeping them there is great reward.12  Who can discern his lapses and errors? Clear me from hidden [and unconscious] faults.13  Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then shall I be blameless, and I shall be innocent and clear of great transgression.14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, impenetrable] Rock and my Redeemer.

Question: How does it make you feel to know that you get to have fellowship with the God of the Universe?
