O LORD, how manifold are your works!
In wisdom you have made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
Yonder is the sea, great and wide,
creeping things innumerable are there,
living things both small and great.
There go the ships,
and Leviathan that you formed to sport in it.
These all look to you
to give them their food in due season;
when you give to them, they gather it up;
when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.
When you hide your face, they are dismayed;
when you take away their breath, they die
and return to their dust.
When you send forth your spirit, they are created;
and you renew the face of the ground.
(Psalm 104:24-30, NRSV)
I love this psalm because it paints a jovial picture of God.
He created the Leviathan for the sport of it. Because He could and for a laugh.
Everything that is on the earth and the earth itself was formed by God.
And God will renew all of it in His timing.
Let us be good stewards of His creation while we wait for Him.
