Nature Declares God’s Eternal Glory and My Dependence
31 Let the glory of the LORD endure forever;
Let the LORD be glad in His works;
· Benedictions may fitly open and close every act of worship. This is true not only of seasons of prosperity, and while dwelling on God’s excellent works, but also in times of deepest distress.
· Poor thoughts of God greatly corrupt his worship, and make it contemptible, causing men thoughtlessly to rush into his presence. Therefore it is always incumbent on us to keep in mind that he is clothed with honor and majesty.
· “The phenomena of light are among the sublimest exhibitions of the Creator’s skill in the material universe; they furnish some of the most awful and pleasing displays of his eternal power and Godhead.” (Morison)
