As we look up into the heavens – taking in the order and the grandeur of the morning and evening skies – we are given to understand that there is indeed “a mighty God”…… a God big enough to put together all of this that we see above us in the sky….. Indeed He IS talking to us – and making Himself known to all who will observe and truly consider – that the constellations we see in the evening sky – and the faithful rising of the sun each morning – are far too complex and well ordered – to be simply the product of a “Big Bang” or some other “cosmic accident.”
And I do not scorn that line of thinking – for it is not a bad thing to seek to find a reason – but apart from understanding that God’s ways and thinking are higher than yours and mine – you and I can never comprehend His power and operations…..Thus He set “a vision” for us to see in the morning and evening sky…
So I watched the sun rise this morning – with the splendor of its warm colors spreading across the sky…… It is glorious to be sure – the soft fresh colors of the morning – and the darker hues we see in the evening – magnificent colors that melt away as the stars and their constellations begin to fill the night time sky. What we see is a picture painted by the Great Creator – the grandeur of which even the best of artists cannot quite capture….
But it is more than just a thing of beauty – because there is also the wonder- For you can see the majesty and the love of its Creator……. Indeed, He put it together perfectly – the hallmark of a new day and the setting to rest at evening of the same….. Then the multitude of stars – and the moon as they appear – beckoning to us to ponder how anyone could put such a masterpiece of incredible design and purpose there…..
No one could help but worship God and feel His presence – Should they take the time to ponder…… Indeed – they would begin to understand His way! ……. For the heavens declare the glory of God – There is no speech or language where their “voice” is not heard!
* “The heavens – where the celestial bodies revolve – do declare the existence – and the glory of a mighty God! Indeed the sky that is visible to our eyes – day unto day and night unto night – if one will observe…do show forth His handiwork – even the operations of a mighty God! There is no speech nor language where their “voice” is not heard…..They make their proclamation – that there is a living God!! The heavens indeed ….. declare the glory of God.”
* Paraphrase Psalm 19:1-3
