We had a great time in church tonight! I’ve been preaching through the book of Psalms on Thursday nights for nearly 2 years. Tonight we found ourselves in Psalm 104, and the truths were so encouraging to me that I wanted to share them with someone. I shared them with my church and then with my family at the dinner table. Now, my blog readers are next on my hit listJ.
Psalm 104 is a great doctrinal Psalm. The entire Psalm revolves around and supports the doctrine that God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. The key verse in my opinion is verse 24. “O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.” Many times we are asked what is the proof of God’s existence. To the person whose eyes are open to the magnificent and beautiful world around us, the evidence is overwhelming! Some people deny that there is a Creator. Others concede the fact that there is a Creator, but deny the fact that God daily sustains all things in the natural world. How I thank God that He is not only the Creator but also the Sustainer. He keeps this old world spinning! I don’t have to worry about icebergs melting or the sun burning out. God created the world, and He will sustain it according to His will.
I. The Creation of the World (vs 1-5)
God is big. Very big! (vs. 1) He created entire galaxies with one sweeping motion of His hand, as easily as we would draw a curtain across a window. (vs. 2) When God lays a foundation, it’s not going anywhere. (vs. 5)
