Looking for God in Nature | 03

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Psalm 92.

A psalm. A song for the Sabbath day.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praise to your name, Most High,
to declare your faithful love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
with a ten-stringed harp
and the music of a lyre.

For you have made me rejoice, Lord,
by what you have done;
I will shout for joy
because of the works of your hands.
How magnificent are your works, Lord,
how profound your thoughts!
A stupid person does not know,
a fool does not understand this:
though the wicked sprout like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be eternally destroyed.
But you, Lord, are exalted forever.
For indeed, Lord, your enemies—
indeed, your enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered.
You have lifted up my horn
like that of a wild ox;
I have been anointed with the finest oil.
My eyes look at my enemies;
when evildoers rise against me,
my ears hear them.

The righteous thrive like a palm tree
and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon.
Planted in the house of the Lord,
they thrive in the courts of our God.
They will still bear fruit in old age,
healthy and green,
to declare, “The Lord is just;
he is my rock,
and there is no unrighteousness in him.”

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? Use that part of the psalm as a prayer.
