CLOTHED IN CREATION

Psa. 104:1,2 ¶  Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, you are very great. You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent.

David taught us that the Lord has clothed Himself with creation. You can tell a lot about folks by the clothes they wear. Some are pretentious and others more muted. If creation is the garment of the Lord, He has to be breathtaking. As I was thinking about this verse I remembered that Jesus actually is God entering into His own creation. The Lord clothed Himself in human skin and came to live among us. What can we learn from looking at God in the ‘skin’ of a a man? First, we are amazed by His incredible love. It is rare for someone to die for family and friends, we consider that the highest act of bravery. Christ died for strangers and enemies. While we were yet sinners, at enmity with God, He died for us. Christ died to save sinners. He displayed His incredible authority as He drove out demons, healed the sick, and stilled the wind and the waves. He also showed His trust in His Father as He willingly gave up His life on the cross. He is clothed with light, just look around, He is cloaked just below the surface everywhere. Here are some thoughts from Spurgeon on this verse.

“Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: wrapping the light about him as a monarch puts on his robe. The conception is sublime: but it makes us feel how altogether inconceivable the personal glory of the Lord must be; if light itself is but his garment and veil, what must be the blazing splendor of his own essential being! We are lost in astonishment, and dare not pry into the mystery lest we be blinded by its insufferable glory. Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain—within which he might dwell. This is a substantial argument for the truth with which the psalmist commenced his song, “O Lord my God, thou art very great.”

So go ahead and check out God’s clothes, He is in full array all around you. Take some time and you will feel His love breaking through the skin that cloaks Him from the world. Oh Lord, You are very great!
