May 10

I’m on my second time through the Psalms in 2021 during my morning Encounter Time. I read Psalm 19 and 20 this morning. Several passages stood out to me. I’ll take a couple of days and unpack them during this time. I hope you will join me and feel free to add to the discussion.

Our weather in Indiana lately has been atrocious. Okay, so maybe that is a little above board but not if you like the warmth. We went from the sunny 70s just a few weeks ago (and I was cycling in my short sleeve jersey) to rain and wind, and this morning to frost on the car windows. Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship.”

I marvel at God’s creation and creativity. Who could have though of the diversity of creation like He did? In fact, all over creativity and creative juices derive from Him.

  • The sun during the day.
  • The moon at night.
  • The stars that we see shining are really burned out stars thousands of miles away. The words of God to Abraham apply here: “Your seed will be as numerous as the sand of the seashore and stars in the sky.”  My question: who can possibly count them?
  • The greening of creation every Spring.
  • The seemingly endless number of bird species. (Hint: over 35,000)
  • The endless list of creativity He exhibits.

Science says this is all by accident or just happened. Yeah right. “There was no Designer,” they say.  I’m thinking they missed the boat on that one due, in large part, to their own preconceived bias.

“Father,  may I never lost sight of Your creativity in creation. Than includes me! Help me to never stop looking and seeing.”

  1. A friend sent me a bunch of photos of the Texas clouds over her home yesterday. They were so beautiful! Just think He created all this for us, not only to enjoy but for us to recognize Him all around us in His magnificent creation. Oh, Hallelujah!!!! Thank You, Abba!

      Pictures like that speak loudly of our Creator God. And He is worthy of our praise.

    I think that is why I like the outdoors so much… The opportunity to see God’s handy-work. Then imagining how the world was first created without the tainting of sin.
    Now that would be a sight to see.

  3. How can anyone look at this creation and think it’s only by accident? They are missing the boat, Bill, by a long shot. Let us rejoice and give thanks to God for His marvelous creation!
