Let the praises of God come from the heavens ... let the praises of God come from the earth (Psalms 148:1,7).

The Scriptures have many references to seeing the presence of God in everything in the world. Psalm 104, for example, is a beautiful song of nature, which recounts God's presence in all His works. As we are swept along by the exquisite poetry of the psalm, we can actually sense how this realization culminated in David's declaration, How many are Your works, O God. You have fashioned them all with wisdom (104:24).

Today, more than ever, people have been privileged to see the marvels of Divine wisdom. Thanks to the marvels of electronic technology, we can see the Divine engineering in the structure of a blade of grass, in the function of a cell of protoplasm, in the complex structure of the atom, and in the awesome composition of super galaxies.

It is wrong to live in a world that testifies to the omnipresence of God and not acknowledge it. This is one reason we have not only daily prayers, but also blessings for so many things. Everything with which we come in contact is a testimony to God as Creator.

Today I shall...

try to be more aware of the omnipresence of God, and to be attentive to the marvels of nature that testify to His infinite wisdom.
