Good morning and Happy Wednesday! Thanks and glory be to God who has revealed His invisible attributes in creation, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead. "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world." (Psalm 19:1-4)
Having this understanding, the Psalmist David was inspired to desire God's perfect law, His sure testimony, His right statutes, His pure commandments, His clean fear, His true and righteous judgments. He reckoned they were more to be desired than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
He wrote, "Moreover, by them Your servant is warned and in keeping them there is great reward. Who can understand His errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer."
And centuries later, the Apostle Paul would write, "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."" "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse."
Thank You Lord for who You are! You are God! Make us more and more like Jesus, as we submit ourselves to You. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.
