Psalm 19-20
Open up the link above to read the Word online.

The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Psalm 19:1 ESV
We can see God’s craftsmanship which witnesses to His glory. The laws of nature have their own majesty of how they were created. They are God’s self witness to His will.
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple…
Psalm 19:7 ESV
The law is the fountain from which flows everything of supreme value to humankind. The reward of keeping the law is not of material prosperity, but to the worshiper a kind of life-giving dedication and sustaining power from God.
Oh, how we need the Lord’s grace to keep the law. It is a living expression of the totality of God’s will. Even Jesus said that he came to fulfill the law. It is perfect and enduring. It is expressive of the total dedication (mouth and heart) of the worshiper to their God. The law of the Lord is perfect. Those who obey are happy. They are victorious.
Oh God, enable us to grasp more completely who You are. Open our eyes to see You in nature and the written Word. May we be filled with a deep abiding joy in Your handiwork and Your holy presence.
