Ask Your Preacher
How am I to understand Psalm 19:1-4 when it says, "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world. In them, He has set a tabernacle for the sun."(NIV)?
Declaring My Confusion
Dear Declaring My Confusion,
Ps 19:1-4 is dealing with the same issue as Rom 1:20. God designed the world, so it would be a testimony to Him. God’s invisible attributes are so clearly seen in this world that it is as if the heavens are literally crying out about God’s glory. Paul quoted Psalm 19 in Rom 10:18 as a proof that all mankind has evidence of God’s existence. His creation leaves us without excuse. SB
