Psalm 146 in today’s readings is a magnificent psalm of praise to God, reminding us that we can’t trust in mortal man, but God is always trustworthy and true. He supports the oppressed, hungry, prisoners, blind, bowed down, strangers, fatherless, and widows. He can always be trusted. Verse 6 gives us evidence for His greatness, “Who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them.”

This verse is one of many verses throughout the Bible that reiterate that God created the world and everything in it. It did not evolve on its own over billions of years as is the predominate theory of secular scientists. This relates to today’s verse from Proverbs 18:2 “A fool does not delight in understanding, but only in revealing his own mind.” In Romans 1:20, Paul states, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.” It doesn’t take long when looking at God’s fantastic creation to realize that what we see could never be the result of random processes.

Here are just a few other Psalms that speak of God’s creation:

Ps 19:1 “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”

Ps: 33:6,9 “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their host. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.”

Ps 104:24-25 “O Lord, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions. There is the sea, great and broad, In which are swarms without number, animals both small and great.” (verses from NASV)

We worship and praise you Lord, for all that you have made, and that you love and support each of us.
