Focus Verse For Today: Psalm 19:1-4

We continue our journey today through the book of Psalms. Psalms is a book of poetry with many authors, although the majority, including the ones in a reading today, were written by David. King David is a very interesting man. He was a sinner that had a deep relationship with God, but David was not perfect. Many of his sins are recorded in the Bible, and some of his psalms reflect his sins.

Take a few moments to pray for God’s perfect understanding of the journey we are about to take. Ready? Read Psalms 18-20. Let’s begin our journey!

PsalmsPsalm 18-20: David proclaims his love for God and describes God as his rock, in whom he takes refuge, and his horn of salvation. In this Psalm, King David is seeking deliverance from his enemies through God. God answers King David’s prayer and delivers him. Our God, David’s God, is a creator! We see His creation, His variety in creation, every day! God’s word is perfect and we need to model our lives after it. David’s relationship with the Lord did not miraculously spring up one day – David had to work at it! David had to grow and change! David had to seek the Lord! David’s life took tumbles when he failed to include God in his plans. Take a moment and think of how tempting it would be for David to forget about God thinking to himself, I am king over all Israel. It would be easy to get sidetracked. David learned on his life’s journey that nothing is better than a life lived through God. (Psalms 18:1-20:9)

Psalm 19 is where our focus verses for today:

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
3They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
4Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
(Psalm 19:1-4, NIV)

There is no excuse for anyone to claim that they do not know God. All of creation, the handiwork of His hands, reveals God to anyone who is searching for Him. Take a moment to think of places you have visited. Compare Hawaii to Colorado, to the Everglades of Florida, to the Arabian deserts, to the foggy dells of London – all so different and all so majestic in their own way! God’s personal touch reveals itself in every place on earth! What about the animals of the world? Look at the variety! Once again God reveals Himself in how He created them. Do you see God in all creation around you? Does creation around you confirm God’s existence to you?
