Acceptable in Your Sight

Psalm 19 highlights two ways in which the glory of God is proclaimed in the world. First, the heavens themselves declare that God is glorious and majestic. If you looked at the sky on your way to worship, you should have heard this message. Did you? But there’s more: God has given us a perfect law, a holy written word that also proclaims His excellencies, and as we come to worship, we should listen to it as such. Finally, David concludes with this thought: all creation, and God Himself, are united in shouting “Glory!” And now it’s my turn. And so he ends this majestic Psalm with a humble prayer that should be on our lips every time we come before God: let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight.
