Psalm 19 has two parts: the first part is how the creation speaks the glory of God, and the second part is how the Word of God is perfect. When we look at the mountains, oceans, skies, valleys, and hills, we can see God's wonderful creations. The moon, the stars, the sun, and the universe do not speak, yet it displays the wonderful glory of God. Psalm 19:1-4a says, "The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. 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." Evolution teaches that the creation of the universe comes from a "big bang" theory. Public schools teach that all creation came to be through a cataclysmic explosion. They do not acknowledge that God created the universe and everything in it. However, when we look at the order of the universe, there's got to be a creator. It is too perfect to be created through an explosion.
The sun comes in the morning to give us heat and light during the day, and the moon and stars come up at night to give us light. The earth is in the exact position of the sun. If we are too close to the sun, we will not survive the heat; if we are too far from the sun, we will not survive the cold. Psalm 19:6 says, "The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat." The creation shows God's power and glory so people can know and believe in Him. Romans 1:20 says, "For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God." Someone asks, "What happens to those who have never heard of Jesus? How can they be saved if they never have a chance to know Jesus? The answer to this question is simple: believing in God through His creation is enough. However, those who have heard Jesus and still do not believe will not be saved.
Let us glorify and appreciate God through all His creation. Let us take time to enjoy nature. When was the last time you hike and just enjoy God's creation? When in doubt of God's existence, we can look at the creation to remind us of the greatness of God. Louis Armstrong sang a song about how wonderful our world is.
Ask yourself these questions for application: (Think through these questions carefully and meditate on them while answering them, and let the Spirit of God speaks to you). What does the creation tell me? Do I believe that God created everything? If I believe that God created everything, what is the meaning and purpose of my life?
Write down all the worries you face today and lift them up to God.
Father in Heaven, how marvelous is your creation? As I see the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, hills, valleys, trees, grass, and flowers, I am encouraged by the beauty of your creation. You are the great God, and no one is like you. Thank you for creating and giving me a new life. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
