Words from the Heart for Friday February 9th, 2018
Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
Psalm 150:6 (KJV)
Everything that Hath Breath
When God created man He breathed into him the breath of life. That breath of life is a gift from our God. We owe Him our breath. What will you do today with that gift of breath? He is worthy of us using our breath to praise Him. Let what comes from your mouth today bring Him praise.
There are a number of factors in the quality of air that we breathe every day. According to Dr. Ted Myatt, a senior scientist with Environmental Heath and Engineering, “Cities known for heavy traffic or manufacturing ultimately will have worse air quality than others, but environmental factors like proximity to mountains or an ocean breeze can trap and also sweep away air pollution. These results are relevant to city dwellers and homeowners, particularly the elderly, young children, and individuals with allergies or asthma.”
The earth is filled with the creative genius of Almighty God. You can’t miss Him if you are truly looking for Him. Paul writes in Romans that men and women are without excuse when it comes to believing in God because His existence can be seen in the glory of his creation. In fact, the Bible says that every living creature is called to praise God. Psalm 150:6 says, “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.” Only human beings understand the things of eternity. Only people have a desire to understand why we are on this planet and how we got here. Animals do not have a sense of grandeur or beauty. But simply by their existence they bring honour to their creator. The simplest of creatures in the animal kingdom is perfectly crafted for their environment. The interdependence of God’s world points to an intelligent design and brings glory to the One who made everything happen with such perfection. It is in their design, the intricacy of their physical nature and the beauty of their colours and hues that bring praise to their incredible Creator. How can you praise Him today?
These have been words from the heart.
