A meditation on Psalm 19
Last week we took a look at the first two verses of Psalm 24 — The earth is the LORD’S, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.” (Psalm 24:1-2 NIV11)
This week let’s conduct a meditation on Psalm 19, another Psalm containing the theme of honouring creation and the God who made it.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.”
(Psalm 19:1-6 NIV11)
V1 What are the glories of God creation that you value?
Vv2-6 When you see nature in all its glory, how do you feel and what is your response to God?
