The Heavens Declare The Glory Of God!


Psalms 19:1-14 (1) The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Nothing else in all of creation is said to declare God’s glory.
(2) Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. (3) There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
No one can truly ignore the sky. Florida calls itself “The Sunshine State” Montana is known as “The Big Sky Country” Who has not been awestruck at the beauty of a starry night?
(4) Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
Sailors used this “line” to chart their courses for centuries.

In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, (5) Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. (6) His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
Everything we know on earth is affected by the sun. Life as we know it would not be possible without it.


David switches gears now. He has shown us an idea about the physical world that will now be applied to the spiritual world. He has shown us two things about the heavens that profoundly affect our daily lives, but do not depend on anything we do. We can always find out where we are by the stars. Our very lives depend upon the sun.

In the same way, God’s law, testimony, statutes, commandment, fear, and judgment are always dependable and necessary for our very lives. (7) The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. (8) The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. (9) The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. (10) More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. (11) Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
This is to be my reaction. (12) Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. (13) Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. (14) Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

My meditation today,

  1. An excellent meditation it is 🙂I have become quite taken with looking at pictures of the universe,.H

  2. Interesting thoughts 🙂 Verses 7-14 really struck me tonight. I have read them & sung them before, but particularly 7-9 were just what I needed to hear. Miss "y'all"….k.

  3. Having a tune to sing in the middle made memorizing this Psalm much easier for my creaky old brainHeather

  4. I love living here in the upper mid-west where you can see the sky. I once watched a video of gregorian chant where they showed footage of the universe and the planets and everything. It was so awesome. Makes you feel really small.
