In Psalm 19:1 it reads: “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” Isn’t it an incredible thought that creation is declaring something? Creation doesn’t sit idly by, it is actively participating in the purpose and plan of God. Psalm 97:6 also says that the “heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.”
We discover in Romans that God’s invisible attributes are clearly seen through creation (see Romans 1:20) and that creation is groaning with anticipation for the restoration at the end of time (see Romans 8).
I came across this video the other day of a time-lapse of Norway. I have seen pictures of Norway’s beautiful fjords (inlets of water set against steep mountain cliffs – see the picture above) but this video was breathtaking. It caused me to ponder the Psalms (creation singing forth praise) and realize that even this beauty is longing to see its restoration (made even better and more beautiful).
Take a couple moments and be captivated by God’s handiwork. But be warned, watching this video may cause you call a travel agent and book tickets for next summer.
