Today’s Devotional Is GOD IS IN HIS HEAVEN
GOD IN THE Heavens (Psa_19.1-6). Although the Psalmist didn’t know much about modern astronomical discoveries, his words can still be applied in reference to the magnificent march of suns or mighty planets towards their distant goal. Even though we are not able to hear the voices from the vault of Heaven, they still speak to us.
The sun is not a god but a creation. He can only follow his destiny and then retire to the tent in darkness at night. Although this is a metaphor, it is not the true symbol of the Sun Of Righteousness, which was once a bridegroom for human souls. Let us embrace His warmth and warm our hearts with His life-giving rays.
God in the Scriptures (Psa_19.7-11). The first division of Psalm is where He is called EL, here as Jehovah. Nature may show His strength, but His redeeming love is revealed in the Bible. Each sentence includes a name for Scripture and an attribute as well as one of its effects. Perfect, with no flaws; reliable, sure; straight, without a complication; as pure as sunshine; as clear as the sun; as true as God’s reflection; righteous, revealing God’s demands and the ways in which He may make us righteous. Its effects are worth considering! David understood that the Old Testament was only a small part of Divine revelation. What would he say about our Bible? For those who, instead of enjoying its scent, are content to merely dissect it.
God is in the heart (Psa_19.12-14). He can read the heart’s innermost secrets and His Blessed Spirit longs for us to be free from our secret sins and keep us from falling presumptuous.
