The Heaven’s declare the glory of God, and the sky above
proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
This Psalm 19:1-2 in the ESV. It is very much the same in any translation. It states a very simple fact — the heaven’s tell us about the nature of God and the sky proclaims or shows to us His work. Each day and night reveal information (knowledge) about Him. In explaining that men are without excuse for their unbelief in Him, Paul in Romans 1:20 states:
For his invisible attributes, namely his eternal power and divine nature, have
been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
These simple verses tucked into His book, lets us know of His great love for all. He has granted us the privilege of displaying His nature in our flesh, and sharing with a lost world His saving message in love. However, He has not left it to anyone to display Himself! He has done that in the creation itself. The stars, the sky, the creation itself reveals much, much about Him. Everything that has been created shows us something about Him.
The creation/salvation story is written in the stars (see Bullinger’s book The Witness of the Stars, available on line at: http://www.philologos.org/), and the very creation (including ourselves) display Him.
I love His Book (Bible), and I am appointed to it, (Ezra 7:10), however, I also am aware I need to open my eyes and perceive. Read some of the scientific information (Creationists sites good here) available and allow the Lord to teach me through what He has created. There is much, much to be known. I guess we all have tendencies to be narrow in our approaches to “beholding” Him. Let’s open and let Him teach us much more — much more!

Looking forward to being with you guys.
Updated my blog.
Have a look
Thanks for reading and commenting. I noticed the change on your blog a few days ago (I check in quite often), and really like the look. It is much easier to read than the black background. Thank you.
Your comments are always appreciated. How we look forward to October and you and Joy being with us at conference. This week we have a one day retreat, so things are “buzzing.”
Blessings to you,
