Psalm 10 was about those who claimed that God, if He did exist, hides himself from us. Psalm 19 is a great song about God’s glory as it’s revealed to us through creation. It begins, “The heavens declare the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship.”

The Hubble telescope was recently focused on what appeared to be a black spot in the sky. As it zoomed in, they discovered billions of galaxies over a billion light years away. I’ve also heard that when the most advanced microscopes are fine tuned they discover smaller and smaller realities; molecules, atoms, protons, electrons, etc. There is no end to the grandeur of our creation. No matter how large or how small the human eyes can reach, there is always more. God is infinite in all His ways. Everything explodes with the reality and the glory of God.

God is hard to find because we’re too pre-occupied. The clamber and distractions of the world can rob us of finding and knowing God. One writer said, “We must learn to soundproof the heart against the intruding noises of the public world in order to hear what God has to say. I love the words of Mother Teresa of Calcutta: We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature—trees, flowers, grass—grow in silence; see how the stars, the moon and sun, how they move in silence …”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote:
Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees takes off his shoes—
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

“Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. (Psalm 10:17)
