The Glory of God in Nature………


He sees into the oceans and into the human heart, and he knows the secret of both


I will remind you of the works of the Lord and describe the things I have seen. The words of the Lord brought his works into being, and the whole creation obeys his commands. The light of the sun shines down on everything, and everything is filled with the Lord’s glory. Not even to his holy angels has the Lord given power to describe all his mighty deeds,  even though he has given them power to stand unharmed in his glorious presence. He sees into the oceans and into the human heart, and he knows the secret of both.The Most High knows everything that can be known and understands the signs of the age. He knows all that has ever been and all that ever will be; he  uncovers the deepest of mysteries. 

He takes notice of our every thought and hears our every word. The orderly world shows the greatness of his wisdom; he is the same for ever and ever. Nothing can be added to him, and nothing taken away;  he needs no one to give him advice. All his works are beautiful, down to the smallest and faintest spark of light. All these things go on for ever, and all of them have their purpose. All things are in pairs, each the opposite of the other, but nothing the Lord made is incomplete. Everything completes the goodness of something else. Could anyone ever see enough of this splendour?

He takes notice of our every thought and hears our every word. 

(The Bible, Sirach 42:15).
