The sea fascinates us. Yesterday, a man told me that his doctor had recommended that he spend a lot of time at his beach house, so that the immensity of the ocean might calm him and remove his worries. But the sea has another message for us:
How many living things you have made, O LORD!
You have exhibited great skill in making all of them;
the earth is full of the living things you have made.
Over here is the deep, wide sea,
which teems with innumerable swimming creatures,
living things both small and large.
The ships travel there,
and over here swims the whale you made to play in it.
Psalm 104:24-26 NET
As the heavens (verse 19) and all God’s creation, the sea is witness to the Creator’s majesty and sings his praises. The great whale (Leviathan), so feared by men, is but a pet of the Sovereign’s. Let us join the sea in its praise of the Lord!
