Nature documentaries usually don’t attract me. Go ahead and give me that look.
I get the whole love of wildlife and how the animal kingdom does its thing. For some it is a riveting subject worthy of the tones of someone like David Attenborough paying careful attention to the rise and fall of that animal in that desert. It just wasn’t my bag.
This Psalm, however, this is quite something. There’s something about it that I love not just because of the beautiful, flowing language. There’s something endearing about creation flowing out of God. Creation is intensely relational and personal. It’s not removed and abstract. It’s presented here as creation responding to Creator.
It is a majestic piece and another reason to love God. It is a piece worth reading whilst enjoying the beauty of creation described both in the living creatures and the variety of landscapes.
Truly the Creator is great and worthy to be praised.
For His Name’s Sake
