Good Morning March 23

Let’s continue a few thought with the 19th Psalm. One can picture David as a shepherd in the fields with his flock having much time to meditate on all nature surrounding him, and at night seeing the heavens filled with stars. He proclaims, “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.”(vss.1-2) The Apostle Paul writing to the Roman Christians underlines this same truth. “What may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”(1:19-20) We go to great lengths to keep God from interfering with modern life, but somehow the mark of His handiwork keeps showing itself. As with David, it should bring us humbly to our knees in worship, and opening ourselves to His revelation.
