God of Affirmation

Heaven is declaring God’s glory;
    the sky is proclaiming his handiwork.
One day gushes the news to the next,
    and one night informs another what needs to be known. 
Psalm 19:1-2 (CEB)

The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Day to day pours forth speech,
And night to night reveals knowledge. 
Psalm 19:1-2 (NASB)

Attention, all! See the marvels of God!
    He plants flowers and trees all over the earth,
Bans war from pole to pole,
    breaks all the weapons across his knee.
“Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
    loving look at me, your High God,
    above politics, above everything.” 
Psalm 46:8-10 (MSG)

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”
  Psalm 46:10 (NIV)

God speaks.
Do we listen?
Busyness, technology, poverty, despair, wealth, selfishness—intruders of peace.
Heaven, sun, clouds, moon, flowers, the cross—proof of a gracious God.

He, the Creator, is Sovereign.
We, the creatures, are not.
Bow before Him and praise His holy Name.
Stop! Look! Listen! Jesus’ testimony of love surrounds humanity.

God speaks through the gallery of creation.
Open eyes, ears, and hearts hear Him.

Be still—KNOW He is God!
