“The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” (Psalm 19:1, NKJV)
You know, sometimes when looking for evidence of God’s existence or His movement in our lives, we tend to expect some kind of magical, mystical, excitable, even phenomenal experience. We have been led to believe that when God moves it will always be in some miraculous or earth shaking way.
Yet the Psalmist here in Psalm 19:1 reminds us that if we want to see the glory of the Lord, all we have to do is look around us. God’s glory is evident in all of creation. Just listen to the singing of the birds. They declare God’s glory. Take notice of the gentleness and coolness of a breeze on a very hot day. The breeze reminds us of God’s glory. Sit by the river or a stream and listen to the calm flow of the waters movement. The water declares God’s glory. Now think about all the things you have already gone through. The fact that all of us are still alive today is a testimony of God’s glory.
1. Have you ever just sat and looked around you and thought about the glory of God?
2.Have you ever looked up at the night sky and saw the moon and the stars and thought about how glorious God is to have created all that there is?
3. Have you ever thought about the intricacies of your own body and how the systems of your anatomy function and marveled at how God has so meticulously made you?
Look around you today. Take notice of all the wonderful things God has done. Pay attention to the “sounds of life” all around you. God is moving. God is speaking. He is at work, both around you, for you and in you. Now, CAN YOU SEE THE GLORY OF GOD?
