“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.” Psalm 19:1 (KJV)
The Bible speaks of the “Glory of God” quite frequently. As I read the Scriptures it seems to me that is what the Bible is all about. The GOD who has made all things, including humanity, wants us all to know Him and His glory. He even has provide the fallen race with the way to Himself.
The Psalmist saw it in his day. David was out under the stars most of the time as a shepherd boy guarding sheep, protecting the sheep, and leading them to clean water. Every evening as the sun would be setting in the west he could and would lift up his eyes and watch for that first star; and behold it in wonder.
People who love God have an appreciation for God’s handiwork. We can see it in the stars. We see it in all of creation. We see God’s working even in our farm animals, our pets, and the people who are our neighbors.
I love watching the stars. I sometimes refer to them as “The floor joists of heaven”. If the floor joists of heaven are so beautiful; I cannot begin to imagine what God’s heaven is like, except for what we are told by Scripture.
As I am writing this it is still dark out, the sky is partially clear, the moon is hanging in the west, and there are a few stars which can be seen. “The heavens declare the glory of God…” and so will I. Will you join me today in declaring the glory of God.
Begin by believing God. His Son Jesus tells us, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but by Me.” And He also tells us, “This is the work of God; that you believe on Him whom He has sent.” Do so today declaring the glory of God.
