Creator God

Psalm 24:1-2 “The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters.”

My son broke his wrist last month, so with his arm in a cast for a month, we set out to find fun summer activities that did not involve water! These included a trip to the Shedd Aquarium and the Adler Planetarium in downtown Chicago. I marveled at the magnificence of God’s created world and its order — all the skies and all the seas display our Creator’s handiwork. And yet, in neither of these museums did we hear or see any mention of the Creator who made these wonders! Not even a passing reference to the possibility of a Creator.

I suppose leaving there and sharing this thought with my children is one reason it is upon my heart to open my mouth and give our Creator God the praise due His name, for His works are awesome.

As we traveled back from Memphis yesterday from a week with my extended family, I had to worship and rejoice as I heard the words to the beautiful song, My Offering, by Nichole Nordeman. Here are some of its lyrics:

(Chorus)Open up the heavens, open up the sky
All of Your creation wants to testify
I have a song, so let the earth sing along
‘Cause I just want to praise You

And the sun every morning cannot wait to shine
And the stars every evening are all standing by to light the sky
Give the rocks and the stones voices of their own
If we forget to sing praises to our King

(Chorus)Open up the heavens, open up the sky
All of Your creation wants to testify
I have a song, so let the earth sing along
‘Cause I just want to praise You.
