Psalm 19: 1-6(NLT): The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard.
Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.
God has made a home in the heavens for the sun.
It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete ready to run the race.
The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat.
Reflections: God loves us so much that he makes Himself known in His creation.
“Heavens” in this passage refers to outter space – the sky, the stars. Not the home of God.
God created the sky, the sun, all the stars. He spoke them into existence. Think about that… wow! When I let my imagination take flight the idea of speaking even an ant into existence is truly mind boggling! What would I have it look like? What would it’s purpose be? Would it be living? Would it fly? Would it talk? Would it be food? What would it taste like? What color would it be? So many decisions to create one little bitty ant.
The sun – THE SUN. Damn! Have you read about it lately? I read the wikipedia highlights this morning. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/sun.
It’s diameter is 109 times larger than earth’s. It’s mass is 330k times denser than earth’s. God spoke the sun into existence. OMG – literally! Just pausing and reflecting on this leaves me in absolute awe. Consider all the sun does. Nothing can hide from its heat! What an amazing, amazing God! God is all power and all powerful. God is the great I AM.
