The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
– Psalm 19:1-4
We can all see the greatness of God, if only we would put our hearts to it; if only we would stop looking at ourselves …and look around us instead, at the marvel of His creation! We can all listen to the voice of reason, to the voice of the Creator Himself, if only we would stop listening to our own, which cares only about itself.
For the eyes and ears of our hearts to be opened to God, we need to stop looking at and listening to ourselves, and seek Him, instead, with expectant hearts. We need to be still…to know that He is God.
Thank You for Your beautiful creation, O God.
Thank You for the air that I breath;
for the light of day,
for the hush of night.
Open the eyes of my heart, O lord,
that I may truly see the wonders of Your love for me.
Open the ears of my mind, O Lord,
that I may gladly hear Your gentle and loving voice.
Thank You for Your great love, O God, thank You!
