LESSONS OF JOB
(Part 10)

THE HEAVENS AND THE GLORY OF GOD

Today's reading brings us to Psalm 19. It is all about God's glory. God told Job about His glory, and challenged Job regarding his knowledge (or ignorance) about His creative work, in and beyond the world (Job 38:1-38). In Psalm 19, David looks to the heavens and is awed, as the heavens point to their Creator. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder's craft." (Ps 19:2). The heavens, in all their beauty and grandeur, speak of the power and wisdom of God.

But God is not just in the heavens. God is also actively present in the lives of people on earth. God is concerned about His people, His creatures. God wants them to experience His awesome majesty, but also to be able to live in abundance according to His plan. So God gives us His law, His commandments, His way of living. His law is perfect and trustworthy, and gives wisdom while refreshing the soul (Ps 19:8). God's awesome majesty results in reverential fear on our part, humbles us, and prepares us to receive and live out His word.

And His awesome majesty and His law point us to some of His essential characteristics, that He is righteous and just. "The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The statutes of the Lord are true, all of them just" (Ps 19:10). If the God who created the awesome universe is just and righteous, then, if we only follow Him and obey His law, we will never go astray. If the One who created the vast and limitless universe is concerned about us, then we know we are in the best of hands. If we are in the best of hands, then no adversity or suffering can ever faze us again.

God bless you all.
