Psalm 24

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

By virtue of first word usage, earth here should be thought of as that which God created, everything, hence the reference to its vast expanse. The fullness is a direct reference to our ability to comprehend. Is the glass have full or half empty? It is only full if you accept that there is substance within the glass that you cannot see, feel or touch. See Colossians 1:16 for validation.

As we discover that vastness we either wonder about its possibilities or are awed by the reach of our God’s capability, majesty and influence. This might be the beginning of that moment of seeking. Will it become an exercise in vanity or seeking God for His truths in all matters.

Then comes: the world and the inhabitants. Much of the universe is uninhabitable even if man has ventured by invention into inhospitable zones of space and lands. So the world should be considered a hospitable zone for life, a place of pleasure and senses, that half full cup. Here we are not yet aware of the other half of the cup which is yet to be discovered. Those things we do not sense with eyes, ears, touch and taste for they are spiritual.

The last observation I would like to make here is ownership, it all belongs to God the creator even if they are unaware of His existence. Their awareness does not alter ownership. Their worship does not alter ownership. In this we are all together, equals in creation.

All men are created equal. Do we treat them as such? Do we honor God’s creation and respect that His love for them is as unwavering as it is for you and me?
