The Things of God Reveal the God of Things.

The Earth is the Lord"s

Psalm 24:1 1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,

the world, and all who live in it;

The world in which we live is Theomorphic: which means things take their form the way they do because they are created to reveal God. Do your ever just stop and consider or wake up in the morning and are amazed at your life, the world that surrounds us is a miracle in all its workings. Can you see that creation points beyond itself as the things of this world including us exist not for their own sakes but to lead us back to God. Creation invokes a sermon, it preaches and explains but do we ever listen?

Psalm 104: 1-35

104 Bless the Lord, O my soul!

O Lord my God, you are very great!

You are clothed with splendor and majesty,

2 covering yourself with light as with a garment,

stretching out the heavens like a tent.

3 He lays the beams of his chambers on …

God’s intelligence, creativity and mastery over all things become visible to us in the things he has made. In Psalm 104 the psalmist who did not have access to libraries or the internet, had many examples: , the landscape, valleys, mammals, birds, wine, etc. The more of creation we discover the more we are amazed at God’s wisdom. “O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures” (Ps. 104:24).

Take time and consider what does the existence of forests, oceans, outer space, molecules, tell us about God the Father or about what was done in an though Jesus Christ? What can we learn from the fact that he created clouds, trees, insects, flowers, and earthquakes. hurricanes etc.? What significance is there in things that human beings have made: pots, trumpets, tools, cities, art, architecture etc.? Let us consider, be amazed and worship our Lord!
