Our call to worship this week is Psalm 104:1-5.

Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants. He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.

This psalm reminds us of God’s power and glory. As the Creator, all things are under His control, the forces of nature and the vastness of space. He made everything that exists and all things work according to His plan. We are part of that creation and included in God’s plan as well.

We sometimes forget that God made us for a special relationship with Him, charged with overseeing the things He made. Genesis 2:15 tells us “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” God gave us a responsibility to watch over what He made, caring for creation as our own.

God is counting on us to be good stewards of His gifts, and we count on each other to be part of His plan. When we work together as He intended, we can achieve wonderful things. Through God’s power and love, all things are possible.

Gracious God, we are grateful for the wonderful creation You have entrusted to us. Help us to be wise in our oversight of Your gifts for all. Amen.
