The Psalm of Creation - Psalm 104 (Part 2)
Part 2 of our study of Psalm 104, the Psalm of Creation. The focus in part two is upon the third day of creation. On day three, God separated the land from the water and caused trees, plants, and vegetation to grow upon the land. Every tree, plant, and vegetable was uniquely designed by God to provide for another part of His creation -- from birds, to cattle, to humanity. God is not only the Creator but the Provider!

The Psalm of Creation - Psalm 104 (Part 1)
Psalm 104 is the psalm of creation. Like Psalm 103, it begins with the phrase, “Praise the Lord, O my soul.” In Psalm 103, the Lord was praise for His work in history. Here, in Psalm 104, God is praised for His creative and sustaining power. The psalmist uses the creation narrative as the underlying text for his psalm. Hence, he writes of the first day in verse 2, the second day in verses 3-5, the third day in verses 6-18, the fourth day in verse 19-23, and the fifth day in verses 24-30. The psalmist use of the Creation narrative as a means of worship underscores not only his acceptance of it as truth, but sets forth an example of how to use Scripture in one’s worship.
A Psalm of Thankful Praise - Psalm 103
Psalm 103 is a psalm of thankful praise. The superscription reveals that David is the psalmist. Reflecting upon God’s goodness and mercy, David can only respond by giving thankful praise to God. He is so overjoyed by God’s goodness and mercy that He calls upon the angels and all of creation to join him in thankful praise. How often do we give thankful praise to God? Perhaps, our lack of praise is due to a lack of reflecting upon God’s goodness and mercy?
