PSALM 19

“THERE’S GOD IN THEM THERE HILLS”

INTRODUCTION


1. ON SEPTEMBER 27, 1998, PHILIP OZERSKY WENT TO A
BASEBALL GAME AND SAW HIS LIFE CHANGED FOREVER.
WITH ONE SWING OF A BAT, AND IN TWO TWINKLINGS OF THE
EYE, HE CAUGHT NOT JUST A BASEBALL, BUT A GOLD MINE.

2. NOW A LOT OF FANS HAVE CAUGHT HOME RUNS, BUT
THIS WAS NO ORDINARY HOME RUN. A LOT OF BATTERS
HAVE HIT HOME RUNS, BUT THIS WAS NO ORDINARY BATTER.
ON THAT DAY, MARK MCGUIRE CAME TO THE PLATE AND HIT
HIS RECORD-BREAKING SEVENTIETH HOME RUN.

3. THE BALL WAS LAUNCHED OVER OZERSKY’S HEAD, HIT A
WALL AND BOUNCED INTO HIS LAP. BEFORE YOU COULD
SAY: “I AM RICH, THIS TWENTY-SIX-YEAR-OLD RESEARCH
SCIENTIST BECAME AN INSTANT MILLIONAIRE. FOR ON
JANUARY 13, 1999, AN ANONYMOUS BIDDER PAID A RECORD
$2.7 MILLION FOR THIS BALL, ALMOST TWENTY-TWO TIMES
THE PREVIOUS RECORD.

HAS SPOKEN LOUDER THAN THAT. PSALM 19, WHICH C. S.
LEWIS ONCE CALLED: THE GREATEST POEM IN THE PSALMS,
AND ONE OF THE GREATEST LYRICS IN THE WORLD,”1 TELLS
US THAT GOD HAS SPOKEN WHERE ALL CAN HEAR AND
SHONE HIMSELF WHERE ALL CAN SEE.

6. THIS PSALM DEALS WITH GOD’S REVELATION. THE
WORD REVELATION COMES FROM THE LATIN PREFIX RE
WHICH MEANS “TO TAKE AWAY,” AND THE WORD VELUM
WHICH MEANS “VEIL”—SO A “REVELATION” INVOLVES A VEIL
TAKEN AWAY SO THE PERSON CAN SEE WHAT LIES BEHIND IT.
GOD HAS REVEALED HIMSELF IN AT LEAST FOUR WAYS SO
THAT WE CAN KNOW THAT HE IS, AND KNOW WHO HE IS.

I. IN THE SKIES GOD HAS REVEALED HIS GREATNESS

1. IF A PERSON WANTS TO SEE GOD, HE DOES ...
