Make a joyful noise for the gift of our salvation. Come before him with thanksgiving for the Lord is a great God. “The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land” (Ps. 95:5). He has sown light for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart. People must therefore rejoice and give thanks for his holiness. God has established the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his discretion. The Lord asked, “Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him?” (Jer. 23:24). God is the author of life.
An Indian spiritual master Sai Baba (1835–1918), regarded by his devotees as a saint said, “Look out into the universe and contemplate the glory of God. Observe the stars, millions of them, twinkling in the night sky, all with a message of unity, part of the nature of God.” This unity manifests itself in human populations throughout the face of the earth. From mountain tops to valleys below, how magnificent is our omniscient God! Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274), an Italian Roman Catholic priest wrote, “Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.” Praise God in meditation. Let your eyes be opened in knowing the truth of his Word. These gifts illuminate the earth like stars shining brightly in the night sky.
Meditation of the Invisible
In meditation there are things we should realize about God. Simone Weil (1909–1943), a French philosopher and Christian mystic said, “We can only know one thing about God – that he is what we are not. Our wretchedness alone is an image of this. The more we contemplate it, the more we contemplate him.” People should learn the Lord’s goodness by discovering him. It’s by knowing him believers will begin to understand themselves. This gift is attained by studying the Word. Eventually there will be a time of reckoning. Zig Ziglar (1926–2012), an author and motivational speaker wrote, “We hear tears loudly on this side of Heaven. What we don’t take time to contemplate are the even louder cheers on the other side of death’s valley.” This is the place where Christian believers will rejoice in the victory won.
This everlasting joy won’t have people think like Paul Theroux (b. 1941), a travel writer and novelist, who said, “Death is an endless night so awful to contemplate that it can make us love life and value it with such passion that it may be the ultimate cause of all joy and all art.” Unlike Theroux believers will look forward to the day when they depart this world to be with their Savior in heaven. This promises to be an extraordinary day beyond their imagination.
