Psalm 104:1-24 This psalm is so beautiful in its description of the majesty of God. This would be a great psalm to read when you are at a low point in your life. As I read about the creative power and manifold works of our God, confidence welled up within me, and I knew without a doubt that God could handle my every problem.
Let's look at some of the statements made about our mighty God in this psalm. Let the verses settle deep in your spirit, and meditate on them all day long. Meditation is like worry in the sense that you keep thinking about the same thing over and over again. However, meditation is creative and restorative, and worry is destructive. When we establish a pattern of meditating on God's Word all the day long, we will have little time to worry.
* God covers Himself with light as with a garment. God literally inhabits our praises, and as we praise Him, the intensity of the light around Him increases because He girds Himself with praise. We have the privilege every day to dress God with garments of praise.
* God stretches out the heavens like a curtain. Isaiah 40:12 tells us that God measures the heavens with the span of His hand. God is big, and He can perfect everything that is a concern to you today.
* God lays the beams of His chamber in the waters. Isaiah 40:12 also tells us that God can hold all the waters on earth in the hollow of His hand. God is big enough to handle every problem you may face today.
The psalm continues listing all of God's marvelous works, with verse 24 summing it all up: "O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of your possessions."
After reviewing all of God's riches on earth, we can only end with praise as the psalmist does: "I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. May my meditation of Him be sweet to Him; I will be glad in the Lord" (vv. 33-34).
Let your meditation of Him be sweet today as you meditate on Psalm 104.
