Psalm 19:1-2: “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.”

There are more languages to the universe than the language that comes out of our mouth; and nonverbal language is just as powerful as verbal language.

Silent witnesses at night are the stars and the Moon. The physical universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere is an enormous billboard advertising God’s glory. On planet Earth, majestic mountain ranges are silent witnesses. They are as solid as rocks can be, and yet God formed them like clay. If He wanted to, He could move mountains. Nothing is impossible to Him. The vegetation on this planet is yet another silent witness spreading God’s glory. Whispering trees and fragrance emitting flowers and herbs – they all wordlessly praise their Creator. A not so silent witness is the animal world. Elephants trumpet, birds twitter, wolves howl – they all spread the word without using words.

God’s thumbprints are visible all over creation; and creation proclaims that God is great – day and night, night and day. If you can hear it, why don’t you join the choir? God’s praise gains momentum when you do. Every voice counts.

“All of God’s creatures got a place in the choir
Some sing low and some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
Some just clap their hands or paws or anything they got”
