Psalm 19:1, The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
This week, I’ve been sharing the top 5 most searched Bible verses that come from the Psalms. So far, we have studied, Psalm 46:1, Psalm 37:4, and Psalm 1:1. If you missed any of those you can find them on my daily blog. The second-most searched verse in the Psalms is Psalm 19:1, and it says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.”
I love that thought; the heavens announce, proclaim and make known the glory of God. That word heavens refers to the material heavens that we can see with our eyes; for example, the sun, the moon, the stars, and the galaxies. And what do the sun, moon and stars declare? “The glory of God!” The glory of God revealed in His wisdom, power, and skill to place everything in its place. As amazing as the heavens must have looked through the eyes of the Psalmist, how much greater still do they appear through the lens of a modern telescope.
Today try to pause at some point and look up and say with the Psalmist, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” I know that often times it seems that God is so far away. We do not feel Him in the midst of our daily lives or our current situations, but God sent us a constant reminder; look up and see His love, His power, His glory, and His creativity.
Tune in tomorrow and I’ll give you the number 1 most searched Bible verse in the Psalms.
Take care and have a blessed day!
