All creation sings!



THE STORY OF JESUS: Psalm 104
“Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.” (Psalm 104:1)
This song is an ode to the greatness and goodness of God.
The psalmist is reflecting on the greatness of what he sees and knows.
He looks into the sky, and sees the heavens, the sun, moon and clouds.
He considers the mountain heights and the watery depths, and everything in them.
The whole system of creation is a marvel, and he knew very little about it.
How much we have learned about the micro- and telescopic vastness of creation.
Add to this the miracle and wonder of life, and especially human life.
This spectacular display (which we often take for granted) is with inspires him.
He imagines God behind all this, through all this, ‘clothed’ in all this.
Everything we see testifies to God’s eternal power and divine nature (Romans 1:20).
“I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.” (Psalm 104:33)
If we really saw the mystery and majesty of the universe, we would sing too.
And yet how little do we see it, how little do we appreciate it.
Pause today to see the greatness and goodness of God, and join in the song of praise!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
PRAYER
Lord, forgive me for not seeing the mystery and majesty in front of my face. Help me rise above my blindness to feel and join the song of creation, which praises God!

  1. This is my Father’s world.
    Do I see God everywhere?
    This is God’s world. Do I see His hand in control?
    As the creation shows His power and glory and majesty
    so I need to praise Him with my voice and life
    living in His presence
    praising Him in all things.
    I am His and He is mine
    and this is His place that I live.

    ‘Til by faith I met Him face to face
    And I felt the wonder of His grace
    Then I knew that He was more
    Than just a God who didn’t care
    That lived away out there
    And now He walks beside me day by day
    Ever watching o’er me lest I stray
    Helping me to find that narrow way
    He’s ev’rything to me
    Verse 1
    In the stars His handiwork I see
    On the wind He speaks with majesty
    Tho’ He ruleth over land and sea
    What is that to me
    Verse 2
    I will celebrate nativity
    For it has a place in history
    Sure He came to set His people free
    What is that to me
