From the Universe to My Heart

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

The Psalmist takes us on a journey in Psalm 19 – beginning by drawing our gaze to the heavens. All of creation cries out wordlessly, unceasingly, and universally: There is a God! Look at what He has done!

While creation makes a strong case for God’s existence, we need more. We see His divine glory in the universe, but we long to know His divine plan. His divine WORD provides the answers. David uses powerful words to describe the WORD in Psalm 19, verses 7-9:

  • Perfect
  • Trustworthy
  • Right
  • Radiant
  • Firm
  • Righteous

We look at the universe He has spoken into existence.

We read the divine Word He inspired.

And we must respond. What is our answer? This creative, powerful, majestic God is not just “out there” or “up there,” He has come near. He is knocking on the door of our heart. Have you answered? Like David, do you know Him as your Rock and your Redeemer?

Will you make David’s prayer of response your answer, as well:

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
