April 12, 2011 (Lev. 16; Ps. 19; Prov. 30; 1 Timothy 1 )

If God did not choose to communicate with us there would be no way that we could ever find out information about Him. This would be horrible! Thankfully God has chosen to communicate to us. He has chosen to reveal Himself to us. He does this in two ways. We often refer to these two ways as General Revelation and Special Revelation. Psalm 19 is a beautiful description of both of these modes of divine communication. The first 6 verses tell how God has put His fingerprints all over His creation. Verses 7-11 then tell us how God has communicated to our souls in His written (special revelation) word! The last 3 verses show us how we should respond to this glorious revelation God has made known to us. We should recognize our own failure, rely on God’s forgiveness, and seek protection from the domination of sin!
