Read Psalm 19


Read Psalm 19

How clearly the sky reveals God’s glory!
How plainly it shows what he has done!
2     Each day announces it to the following day;
each night repeats it to the next.
3     No speech or words are used,
no sound is heard;
4     Yet their messaged goes out to all the world
and is heard to the ends of the earth.
God made a home in the sky for the sun;
5           It comes out in the morning like a happy bridegroom,
like an athlete eager to run a race.
6     It starts at one end of the sky
and goes across to the other.
Nothing can hide from its heat.
7     The law of the Lord is perfect;
it gives new strength.
The commands of the Lord are trustworthy,
giving wisdom to those who lack it.
8     The laws of the Lord are right,
and those who obey them are happy.
The commands of the Lord are just
and give understanding to the mind.
9     Reverence for the Lord is good;
it will continue for ever.
The judgements of the Lord are just;
they are always fair.
10   They are more desirable than the finest gold;
they are sweeter than the purest honey.
11   They give knowledge to me, your servant;
I am rewarded for obeying them.
12   No one can see his own errors;
deliver me, Lord, from hidden faults!
13   Keep me safe, also, from wilful sins;
don’t let them rule over me.
Then I shall be perfect
and free from the evil of sin.
14   May my words and my thoughts be acceptable to you,
O Lord, my refuge and my redeemer!

Think

When we worship God we do not work alone.  All of creation is praising God with us - announcing God's glory and beauty without saying a thing.  It is our task in worship to reflect God into the world; to do that we need God to help us.
