More Than Bread Devotional for 7/19/11

1 The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
2Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
3There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
6Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.  – Psalm 19:1-6

With as much of the country under heat advisories as we have at the moment, these verses seemed a little timely.  While it is possible to try and hide from the heat of the sun a little more so today than when this was written (thank you A/C), it is impossible to keep the sun from making it hot outside.  But it is more difficult still to hide from God.  The Bible tells us that nothing is hidden from His eyes.  Even in the moments when you are certain that no one else can see, He can.

I am always amused when I spend some time with someone who doesn’t know me very well and then finds out that I am a pastor.  Many times, they become more self-conscious about their language or behaviors.  I usually see this on the golf course at least a couple of times a season.  I try to share with a little humor that they don’t need to be worried about impressing me.  I miss a lot of things.  Rather, if they want to “watch what they say or do,” they should be conscious of the One who doesn’t miss anything at all.  He is the only One we have to give account to when all is said and done anyway.
