Looking for God in Nature | 05

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Psalm 63.

A psalm of David. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah.

God, you are my God; I eagerly seek you.
I thirst for you;
my body faints for you
in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.
So I gaze on you in the sanctuary
to see your strength and your glory.

My lips will glorify you
because your faithful love is better than life.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
at your name, I will lift up my hands.
You satisfy me as with rich food;
my mouth will praise you with joyful lips.

When I think of you as I lie on my bed,
I meditate on you during the night watches
because you are my helper;
I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings.
I follow close to you;
your right hand holds on to me.

But those who intend to destroy my life
will go into the depths of the earth.
They will be given over to the power of the sword;
they will become a meal for jackals.
But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by him will boast,
for the mouths of liars will be shut.

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.
