By Don Ruhl

Picture in your mind the glory of God and then speak of it to Him in prayer, as the psalmist did,

Bless the LORD, O my soul!
O LORD my God, You are very great:
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment,
Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain.
(Psalm 104.1–2) 

He is great! How do we see His greatness? He wears honor and majesty, and wears light as a garment. How did the heavens get here? He stretched them out. Bless Him for the beauty that you see in the sky.


  • What fascinates you about the night sky?
  • If God did not bring the heavens into existence, how did they get here?
