This psalm reminds us that the ancient Israelites might have understood God’s teachings about creation (verses 1-6) and law (verses 7-14) as the same. For example, the psalmist calls God “rock” and “redeemer” in verse 14. How does that affect our understanding of God’s creation and God’s law today? Creator God desires for us to rely on God and live in harmony with creation. This is a perfect message for Lent, a time when we are called to recognize and appreciate our dependence on God.
This week, look for God’s glory around you. Each day, write down examples of God’s glory in your calendar or journal, snap a photo with your mobile phone and post it to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
