One of the most profound philosophers to ever live, Immanuel Kant, marveled at the starry heavens above and the moral law within and noted that "both echo this truth of this psalm, because both reveal God's glory."
Any time I come to this psalm it forces me to think through all of the things the writer references. How often have I taken for granted the world around me?
How often have I missed the beauty of the sun rising "like a great athlete eager to run a race"?
I chose to focus our attention on this psalm today in hopes that we will learn to worship God in the every day things, because as the psalmist goes on they point us to the Word of the LORD, or the Laws of God.
Spurgeon comments regarding this psalm as a response of David and his particular study of God's two great books: nature and Torah, saying,
[David] had so thoroughly entered into the spirit of these two only volumes in his library that he was able with a devout criticism to compare and contrast them, magnifying the excellency of the Author as seen in both. He is wisest who reads both the world-book, and the Word-book as two volumes of the same work, and feels concerning them, "My Father wrote them both."
In Psalm 19, God transcends any box of understanding I could possibly try to trap Him in.
Yet, He is immanently revealing Himself in the most paradoxical, wonderful, mysterious, and intimate of ways.
