Psalm 104 – Creator & Sustainer

It’s good and right to watch science and nature programmes that give a sense of wonder at the world and space around us. This psalm is similar, but lifts our eyes to marvel further still at the God of such creative power, brilliance, and beauty who created it all. He dwells in lofty majesty (v2-4), yet delights in his handiwork. The universe is not like a wind-up mechanism watched by God from afar; he is intimately involved, not least in the giving and taking of life. All Creation ought to praise such a God and so we do in Christ. Not everyone does (v35), so the psalm hints at the day of Christ’s return when all things will be made new.

Great and majestic God, you who dwell in such splendour that you look down on the heavens, thank you for your particular care to me. Your kind hand touches all life, and you have opened my eyes to perceive it. Help me to see more of your beauty as I meditate on all you have made.
