The God of Life

O Lord my God, You are very great:You are clothed with honour and majesty.

Psalm 104:1

One bitterly cold February morning, the sound of chirping birds broke the silence of the cold morning air. Dozens, if not hundreds, of birds sang their hearts out. If I did not know any better, I could have sworn the little creatures were crying out to their Creator to please warm things up! 

Bird experts tell us that the multitude of birdsongs we hear during late winter mornings are mostly male birds, attempting to attract mates and claim their territories. Their chirping reminded me that God fine-tuned His creation to sustain and flourish life, because He is the God of life. 

In a psalm that marvels at God’s flourishing earth, the author begins, “O bless the Lord ,O my soul” (Psalm 104:12). He went on to write, “The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches” (v 12). 

From singing and nesting birds to a vast ocean “teeming with creatures beyond number” (v 25), we see reasons to praise the Creator for the lengths He has gone to ensure that all of life thrives. Give God, our Creator, thanks and praise today, for His wonderful creation, and because He is the God of life.
