Psalm 89:5 “LORD, the heavens praise your wonders – your faithfulness also – in the assembly of the holy ones.”

REFLECTIONS ON TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE(S):

Looking up into a night sky can be a humbling and exhilarating experience. Yet, the naked eye can see only so much. A powerful telescope will reveal even more wonders. Yet, even then, there are things we cannot see that the Hubble Telescope has captured. Yet, even the Hubble has not captured images anywhere near the edge of our universe … if, in fact, there is an “edge.”

To state is simply, it is spectacular and massive out there! And the Psalmist in our text joins the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans in saying that the sky above gives us plenty of reason to praise our God:

Romans 1:20 (CSB) “For his invisible attributes, that is, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what he has made…”

What are these verses telling us? That as we explore and enjoy the beauty and immensity of space around us, we come to understand a little bit more of how wonderful our God is!

It calls us to praise Him! 

“Lord, my mind can’t comprehend how massive it is out there. How infinitely powerful you must be to simply have spoken it all into existence!”

“Lord, I’ve seen pictures of beautiful galaxies and gas plumes that result from exploding stars that are absolutely breathtaking. How creative and artistic you must be!”

This is what the Psalmist meant when He said “the heavens praise Your wonders.” It is God’s handiwork and demonstrates for us some incredible attributes of the God we love and serve.

So, today, look around you. Look above you this evening. Be caught up in the wonderful of our world and universe. And then let it move you to praise our great and awesome God.
