For the director of music. A psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.
The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.
By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
GNT … If we stop to consider all the things that have to happen in the universe every day just, so that humans can survive, we’d find ourselves spending the whole day praising God.
Minute changes in the composition of our air or water, gravitational force, magnetic pole alignment, temperature range, orbit around the Sun, rotation speed, etc. would render the earth unfit for human habitation and cause our immediate demise. Who keeps all these things in their delicate state of balance?
Yet, random man made accidents that happen because we are imperfect, cause us great pain and yet the eternal focus that keeps the Earth and universe habitable for man just seems to work for our existence.
And some people say that there is no master designer, no God.
