Psalm 65:13 (Pt. 3) Thought/Prayer: Singing Joy from a Valley. Topics: 2 at end.
“The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing. KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
Pastures and valleys singing: It could make one wonder whether there really are sounds in the universe unheard by human ears. But we will assume that this is just descriptive of the joy of the Lord as He puts it into writing for us to understand in poetic ways, of enjoyable thoughts of sheer possibility.
On the other hand, we know that wheat fields can wave. Well, at least we sing about amber waves of grain. “Oh sure.”
But, in reality, Isaiah 55:12 tells us that the mountains and hills will sing and trees shall clap hands. “For he shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands” (KJV). It’s a bit easier to think of trees clapping hands because their branches can look like, or are depicted as, arms. However, this personification breaks down when considering a compact fir tree with limbs totally incased in its green. Not much waving around and clapping in there. But maybe small clapping.
Could it be that God just wants us to know His joy in the nature around us, that He created? His words here surely must tell us how He feels about His handiwork. He views it as so happy as to make song. Of course, it is His song since He created pastures, valleys, trees, mountains and hills. If our gigantic star, the sun, were to sing, I wonder how big a song it would be.
Our part is just to enjoy it seems. Our part is to imagine hills singing or valleys likewise. We could even go so far as to think up ideas of song. What kind of song does a valley filled with corn sing? “Hear with your ears what the ears have to say”? But this is, of course, silly.
But Lord, we do pray that we will always take joy in all of your magnificent creation in nature. We know that we can always sing your praise even if we can’t hear cornstalks or wheatfields praising you. Thank you for making such beauty and diversity in our world. And thank you for the diversity of each child in the womb. And help us to always honor Your creativity as seen in that child and Lord, help that child to grow to love You and to also appreciate the beauty in nature and to credit you for it, in the world in which any child grows up.
Topics: Pray for appreciation of all that God has created and especially for the beauty in any child or any old person.
