The Upper Room Devotion for Monday, April 22, 2024, was written by Hank DeGraaff of Michigan.



1 The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. 2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; 4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.

Psalm 19:1-4 NRSV


Author's Thoughts

Several years ago, my wife and I stayed in a rented cabine in the Rocky Mountains. I will never forget that night. The sky was filled with millions of beautiful stars. They seemed so close that we could almost reach up and touch them. We stared at them for some time, praising and worshiping our great God for the wonder of creation.

The words of Psalm 19:1-4 became clear to us that evening: "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world."

All creation speaks powerfully of God - God's infinite wisdom, majesty, and creative power. No matter where we live, we can look around and see the wonder and beauty of God's creation.


Thought for the Day

The beauty of God's creation is all around me.


Author's Prayer

Awesome God, open our eyes to see the wonder and glory of your creation. Amen.
