Psalm 19

Our words are not God’s Words, but consider this excerpt from the Book of Psalms:

The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
    and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
    whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
    and their words to the end of the world. (Psalm 19:1-4, ESV)

When God spoke creation into being, His Words rang out with echoes beyond our imaginations. And, within His attention to detail, He let creation respond. He granted declarations, proclamations, revelations, speech, words, and voices to the work of His hands.

We may not understand all the language around us, bubbling up in praise and prayer to God, but He hears and He makes known pieces of His glory to us through the very things He created. “Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.”

There is no speech, nor words, whose voice is not heard. That is a pretty intense thought. It could spark all sorts of reactions, in context or out.

Thanks be to God that, now, “in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son” (Hebrews 1:2).  Our words—no matter how fine or fallen—will never be the last. Instead, Christ is the First and Last, and so active in between as He who hears and knows His creation and our voices, words and all. Hallelujah.
