Looking for God in Nature | 01

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Psalm 84.

How lovely is your dwelling place,
Lord of Armies.
I long and yearn
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh cry out for the living God.

Even a sparrow finds a home,
and a swallow, a nest for herself
where she places her young—
near your altars, Lord of Armies,
my King and my God.
How happy are those who reside in your house,
who praise you continually.Selah

Happy are the people whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
they make it a source of spring water;
even the autumn rain will cover it with blessings.
They go from strength to strength;
each appears before God in Zion.

Lord God of Armies, hear my prayer;
listen, God of Jacob.Selah
Consider our shield, God;
look on the face of your anointed one.

Better a day in your courts
than a thousand anywhere else.
I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God
than live in the tents of wicked people.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield.
The Lord grants favor and honor;
he does not withhold the good
from those who live with integrity.
Happy is the person who trusts in you,
Lord of Armies!

 

How does the psalmist’s careful observation of creation help him communicate who God is and what he does?  

The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.

LISTEN:

Listen to the corresponding EveryPsalm by Poor Bishop Hooper.

FOCUS:

Look out your window. What do you see? What does it say about God?

PRAY:

What stood out to you in the psalm you read? Pray through it.
