The other day I was in a burger joint getting some breakfast and this lady asked me which Psalm was Psalm 19. (It happens to be my license plate on my car.) And I told her how it starts to refresh her memory of which one it is. When she left I got to thinking about the chapter as a whole. It has a definite progression. The psalmist starts out observing the sky and sees God's glory in it. Then he starts to reflect on God's Word and is brought to a realization that he is lost without God. And he ends by saying, "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing and acceptable in Your sight, oh Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."

I believe that the psalmist is basically trying to teach us that as we look at creation around us, it should draw us into a realization of God's glory and that we are lost without Him. Thus leading us to have a stronger desire to walk uprightly before Him and to listen to His voice even closer.

The end of that chapter has been my theme for decades. "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing and acceptable in Your sight, oh Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."

Read the rest of the article to see how I believe that the heavens declare the glory of God.
