Day 104 Psalm 104 Psalm 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honor and majesty. 2 Who covers thyself with light as with a garment: who stretches out the heavens like a curtain: 3 Who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters: who makes the clouds his chariot: who walks upon the wings of the wind: 4 Who makes his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: 5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed forever. 6 Thou covered it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. 7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. 8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. 9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth. 10 He sends the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills. 11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst. 12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches. 13 He waters the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. 14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; 15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthens man’s heart. 16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; 17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. 18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies. 19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows his going down. 20 Thou make darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. 21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. 22 The sun arises, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens. 23 Man goes forth unto his work and to his labor until the evening. 24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. 25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. 26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. 27 These wait all upon thee; that thou may give them their meat in due season. 28 That thou give them they gather: thou open thine hand, they are filled with good. 29 Thou hide thy face, they are troubled: thou take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. 30 Thou send forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renew the face of the earth. 31 The glory of the LORD shall endure forever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works. 32 He looks on the earth, and it trembles: he touches the hills, and they smoke. 33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. 34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. 35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD. Man has tried hard to take God out of creation and call it evolution. Yet, they have failed to annihilate God from creation. The psalmist showed how God created everything, and even caused the flood that destroyed the earth, and renewed it with a word. He showed how God created the boundaries for the seas and oceans, provided food and water for the earth and everything in it, and nests for birds and the seas for fish small and great. The psalmist answered the question: What can your God do? Any time we see a new day, new life, hear the song of the bird, see a sunrise or sunset, feel the wind on our face, the gentle rain, experience the wonders of creation, we see God at work. The question should not be ‘What can your God do?’ but rather, what can we do in comparison with what God did do? By comparison, man cannot come close to creating all the wonders of land and sea. By comparison, man cannot imitate the intricacies of man’s design. Man cannot duplicate what God did, yet they try and for their efforts call God’s design evolution. As Christians, we know the truth behind God’s creation. We know the designer by name, and we worship and praise him for all he has done, for what he has done is all around us. We only need to look around us to experience God’s love for us in his creation. Let’s pray: Father, help me never grow tired of your creation and what you have done for me. Help me praise you and bless your name for who you are: my Creator. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen. Copyright © 1 July 2016 by Valerie Jean Routhieaux Image courtesy of Pixabay
