Psalms 96:11-13a Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice!Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise before the Lord, for he is coming!
I read this and smiled. I will never again hear the ocean and not think that it is shouting praises... I will never again see a garden bursting with blooms and the fruit of its vine without knowing the earth is praising God... I will never again hear the rustling of the trees without knowing they are praising God. Even the earth gets excited over God... over His presence...over his return!!... if the waters and the plants and the trees get excited so should we. I want to be reminded each time that I see these wonderful creations of God and each time I hear these wonderful creations of God to feel great joy... to sing God's praises. How exciting to know that even the waters and the ground...the trees and the plants praise God. Can you say Wow!
