Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” vss, 2-4a

Psalm 19

The psalmist believed that God was revealed in the creation. If we wanted to know God all we needed to do was open up our eyes and take a look around. And if we do that, the psalmist wants us to know, we will discover the glory of the Lord. Even though we hear no speech or words, the voice of creation speaks clearly and the wonders of the universe are made known. And it is spectacular! The psalmist wrote these words thousands of years ago, and their truth is amplified with each new scientific discovery. We will never cease to be surprised–that’s just how wonderful this old world is. And the neat thing is that as we grow in our knowledge of our surroundings we are also immersing ourselves in the essence of God. There was a time when our knowledge of God was limited–many thought of God as a supreme being living off in the clouds in a place called heaven. But as we have continued to listen to creation’s speech in the day and in the night, exploring our God connections, knowledge and intimacy grows. We know now that we are never apart from God because we are eternally a part of God.

Thought for the Day: What has creation taught me about God?
