Let everything that has breath bless the Lord
(Psalm 103, NIV)
I am out here in our backyard, and I hear the birds chirping and praising their creator.
I see the trees clapping their hands in worship of their maker. (Isaiah 55:12)
I can feel the wind though I cannot touch it, I can see the bright sky with patches of cloud protecting humans from the heat of the Sun. I can see the Sun ninety-three millions miles from Earth in its splendor and worship of our mighty God.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
You give life to everything and the multitudes of heavens worship you. (Nehemiah 9:6)
I join with all of creation to worship you:
the great I AM, the sovereign God, riding on the wings of the winds, making the clouds your canopy and the earth your footstool. I worship you because you dwell behind the galaxies and even the highest of heavens cannot contain you. I worship you because you are the creator of all things and by your hand all things hold together.
I worship you because you are all knowing, all powerful, all wise, immortal and invisible, and all together good and perfect in all your ways. I worship because you are faithful, loving, merciful, gracious, forgiving, protecting and all together madly in love with me and all those that have put their faith in Jesus Christ. I worship you because the sum total of human existence is to know you and be known by you and enjoy your abiding presence not just in this part of eternity, but through all of eternity!!!!
Let us raise our voices together and bless the Lord in worship.
