Guideposts Executive Editor Rick Hamlin shares how to pray Psalm 114.
[EASY LISTENING MUSIC] Hi. It's Rick Hamlin, and this is Psalm 114. "The mountains skipped like rams and the little hills like lambs." Now, I am no shepherd, and I've seen lambs, and sheep, and rams only from a distance, but I know exactly what this is talking about.
You know when you're feeling good, the earth feels with you. You have that sense on a glorious day when you're out walking with nature, you can feel nature walking with you, so that you can look at a mountain and you can see it seeming to move. You can see hills tremble. You can see the trees blowing in the wind. You can see the whole fields you know, when the wind blows, it's like waves, the sea.
So God does this, but it's also what God does through us. He gives us sensations that-- that we can enjoy and that when we look at his world, we see how his world mirrors our inner world. "The mountains skip like rams, the little hills like lambs." What a wonderful thought. Seeing the world through the Psalms helps us see how the world is-- changes according to who we are and who we are with. When we're with God, we can see that the mountains are skipping like rams, Psalm 114.
