Psalm 19 is one of the Psalms which have been set to music. “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. 

There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.” Certainly, at times, we all struggle with meaningful worship.  A clear way to overcome this feeling is to remember the glory and majesty of God.  It is too easy to overlook God and pass right on to His commandments and expectations.  Often, we just need to be reminded of His greatness.

Consider the beauty of nature.  The oceans, the sky, the mountains, the flowers, the trees, the huge diversity of animals, the changing of the seasons, the universe – all of these declare His glory, majesty, and power.  Certainly, we are just a speck in this vast universe, yet each of us has the full attention of God.  Consider also the microscopic life that exists.  David wrote in Psalm 8:1, 3-4 “O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who has set Your glory above the heavens!  When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him” 

And then consider the beauty of HIS nature.  The psalmist now moves from the beauty of nature to the beauty of God Himself in Psalm 19:7-11.  God is perfect, sure, right, pure, clean, true, righteous, more to be desired than gold, sweeter than honey, and a great reward.  We need to see the beauty of nature and also to look beyond it and see the beauty of His nature.

“God is good all the time, and all the time God is good.”  For what do we, as the people of God, the church of Christ, want to be known? I do not want to be known for any particular doctrinal emphasis.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if when people thought of the church of Christ the first thing that came to their minds is that we are a people who hold God in majesty and awe, and that we are a people who humble ourselves before Him?
