Skywriting the Message of Love: A Psalm for the Summer
I’ve often said music is the universal language. There’s truth in that but recently, while reading Psalm 19 I realized God authored the true universal language. Music comes from God but is composed by man. The heavens above –the sky, the sun, the moon, the clouds –are seen by every creature on earth. The heavens are the language heard by all.
“The heavens declare the glory of God.”
Every culture, every people group on the face of the earth seeks God. Seeks to know their creator. Seeks understanding of the universe. God creates in each of us a desire to know Him. And it starts in the form of “skywriting.”
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
Feel free to share your own "skywriting" messages from God. I'd love to see your pictures!
