Beauty and wonder of creation.
Something to think about
I wonder where you feel God’s presence most tangibly? Maybe it’s in silent prayer, or when your voice joins with others in praise. Maybe it’s sitting with your Bible or listening to worship music.
For me, it’s when I am outside (ideally beside the sea!).
Psalm 95 reminds us that every detail of creation is God’s design, 'In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and the dry land, which his hands have formed.'
The Psalm doesn’t just tell us that God is the Creator, it tells us this demands a response. The Psalm starts with the invitation 'O come Let us sing to the Lord'. We should worship him because he is the Creator, and because he holds the mountains in His hands. In this Psalm, we are called to come, to kneel and to listen.
When we see the world that God has created, our worship can’t be passive. Rather, it has to be active. As His greatness and wonder are revealed in nature we, as people who love and follow him, should be at the forefront of preserving our planet. Consider how you might use your voice to speak up and speak out.
