“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
Psalm 19:1-4 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their measuring line goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.”
God speaks to us today in the skies…through His creation. We can know God…we can see the light of God…by simply looking up at the sky.
The Greek word for “man” in the ancient world and in your New Testament is “anthropos,” which means “the upper-looking one.” Animals look down, but God created man to look up into the heavens to see His glory and to experience His power in creation. God speaks to us in the starry skies!
Indeed, the heavens declare the glory of God. As the psalmist says, “Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.” Creation is constantly, continually, and eternally speaking.
And we know that because there is a creation, there must be a creator!
Now, you may not be a morning person, but I’d encourage you…if you want to catch a glorious glimpse of your Creator…get up early one morning this week to watch the sun rise. I can assure you, seeing His handiwork in creation will speak words of encouragement to your soul!
to Be encouraged this week look at creation to see the handiwork of your creator.
