“O Lord, how many and varied are Your works! In wisdom have You made them all; the earth is full of Your riches and Your creatures.” (Psalms 104: 24, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)
Let’s join in this wonderful song of praise! Just like the psalmist, we can truly behold what God has made and rejoice in His handiwork.
I love the excitement in this verse, the real thrill at recognizing and acknowledging the variety in God’s creation. He both wisely and artistically formed a world and its peoples full of diverse ideas, all made to express the infinitude of His own nature. And that nature includes nothing that isn’t Love—lovely, lovable, loved.
We can take this true perspective, the one celebrated here, wherein we don’t take for granted God’s masterful and manifold creatures. We can open our eyes to the real glory to be found in each one of us—we who are at times so vastly different and yet alike in Source and equal in worth. We can behold and treasure the abundance of God’s goodness in all that we see and that we are. And we can stay poised to experience more of these true riches around us every day—in those we meet, in nature, in art, in music, and in ourselves!
