“They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,”
In a couple of our classes we are studying the Will of God. This verse was used last Sunday, and it made me think about what am I saying when I don’t use words. The psalmist is talking about God’s magnificent creation and how they talk to us by just standing there. By us taking the time to observe them, we can understand that they are talking about God. They are telling us about God’s magnificent power and holiness.
As one of God’s creations what are we proclaiming? What are we saying? If every creation is saying magnificent things about God, what am I saying when I don’t open my mouth? What do the people around me hear about God when I’m not speaking? The verse continues saying that their voice goes into all the earth. To every person that we interact, what is the message they are hearing? They need to hear the magnificent things of God. They need to see our lives as an example to imitate. They need to see our lives as an example to follow and they need to see in our lives the existence of God! They need to see in us the love of Jesus, and they need to see in us the transformation that the Holy Spirit has made in us.
