Psalm 148:7-8 (Pt. 2) - Natural Obedience

Thought/Prayer:  Topics:  2 at end.

“Praise the Lord from the earth, you creatures of the ocean depths, fire and hail, snow and clouds, wind and weather that obey him;” . . . NLT  (Read this scripture and more at

Have we noticed the word “obey” here?  All of these natural phenomena are said to obey the Lord.  We know that Jesus stilled the sea, and the disciples were in wonder at His power.  What about us?  Aren’t we rather small in comparison to all of this?

We, even more than nature, must obey Him.  We cannot forget that God made humankind at the top of the hierarchy of creation, the only creation made in his own image (Gen. 1:27).  And whereas nature obeys Him, He made us to not only obey, but to seek Him (Acts 17:27).  We are the only creation who may choose whether to obey or not.  A tree cannot decide whether its branches bend in the wind or not.  A cat cannot choose between barking or meowing! 

Our having a choice makes it even more wonderful when we do obey.  Lord, we ask that each of us who are concerned for the future of the unborn, the elderly, the infirm, the mentally challenged, will make a priority of obeying You.  Lord, help us recognize Your voice as you speak to each of us in varying manner – and then help us obey.  May it be as natural as in nature.
