Look to the Sky…

Read Psalm 97

Focus on verse 6

I have always enjoyed watching the sky. Few things encourage me more than bright blue clear sky first thing in the morning or the glory of a blazing sunset whether it is over a field of ripening wheat on the prairie or reflecting off the water of the Gulf of Mexico. What I find most amazing however, is gazing into a clear sky on a moonless night. The massive vastness of the universe seems to shout out the glory of the One who created it all.

In Psalm 97 we read in verse six, “The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.” Whether it is daytime or nighttime, the universe around us is proclaiming to us the greatness of the God who created it all. Whether it is the whisper of the soft falling rain or the shrieking of the wind during a hurricane, the universe is consistently proclaiming the glory and majesty of God. The question that remains then is, “Why?” Why would God want to get our attention this way? Why would He have created us in His own image and then given us the choice to ignore Him? Perhaps the answer is love. He created us with the ability to choose not to love Him because that is the only way He could know that we really do love Him. He created the magnificence of the universe to get our attention so that we might discover that He loves us. Then to prove His love, He took on human form in the person of Jesus Christ and laid down His life to atone for our rejection of Him so that we could have a second chance at loving Him. All of this to persuade us to love Him in return.

The heavens really are proclaiming the glory and wonder of God…all we have to do to get the message is look to the sky.
