The Heavens Declare The Glory Of God

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
Psalm 19:1 (NIV)

The earth is a giant space ship travelling around the sun at a perfect speed and a perfect orbit. God has provided the earth with everything that is needed to maintain every living thing he has created.

When we look into the heavens beyond our galaxy we see countless other galaxies which all work in perfect harmony with each other. All of the physical creation is governed by laws, which God set in motion.

Human beings are beginning to understand the laws of physics; the laws which enable us to transmit radio, television and mobile phone signals; the laws which enable an aeroplane to fly though the air at great speed. Everything that we enjoy, and often take for granted in our modern world, only works because these laws are completely dependable! If these laws failed all physical things would be destroyed. But we need not fear, for these laws will not fail as long as there is a physical creation!

When a person opens their eyes and looks closely at the wonder of everything in the physical world, they see the evidence of God and his creative powers: “being understood from what has been made” (Romans 1:20). Only the fool says, “There is no God”. (Psalm 14:1),

Prayer
Father, God, open our eyes so that we can see your glory in the wonder that is all around us.
Amen
