When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground. – (Psalm 104:30)
Psalm 104 praises God as creator and sustainer of the earth. One of the dimensions of his providential care has to do with the work of the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit that is hovering above the primordial chaos before creation waiting for the Father’s word to begin the work of creation is even now the Father’s partner in bringing blessing to our world.
When we pray to God — the Creator and Sustainer of all we know, when we talk about Jesus holding the universe together, we also need to remember this is also the work of Holy Spirit: “When you send your Spirit, they are created and you renew the face of the ground.”
Prayer : O Father, thank you for your ongoing involvement in the universe that you created. I know that our world is broken as a result of the fall and our human rebellion to your will, but I take comfort in knowing that you hear our prayers and that your Holy Spirit still is at work in our world renewing your creation. Thank you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
