He Has Spoken

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. —Psalm 19:1

What would life be like if God had never spoken . . . never communicated with man . . . never given us His written Word? Try to imagine a world in which no one had ever heard the voice of God, where there was no Bible.

We would know there is a God, because “the heavens declare the glory of God.” But how would we know what He is like? We were created to bring Him pleasure (Rev. 4:11 KJV), but how would we know what pleases Him?

Had God not chosen to speak, to reveal Himself, we would have no standard for right and wrong. We might experience some vague sense of guilt when we sinned, but we wouldn’t know why; nor would we know what to do about our sin. Our lives would be pointless and frustrating.

Thankfully we don’t exist in a spiritual vacuum. God has spoken. He has revealed Himself to man. Have you stopped to consider what that really means?

Make it Personal

Write a prayer to thank the Lord for His Word and for what it has meant in your life.
