God is creator of everything that exists. There are some who believe in no God at all. There are others who do not want to argue whether there is God or not. Then you have a group that believes there is a God, but beyond creation he has nothing to do with this globe. They believe that God created everything in existence, set the laws of science into motion, and than walked away taking a cosmic vacation. Those folks tend to be called deist.
David was not a deist. We see that in our reading today in the very first chapter. David wrote … “You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The river of God has plenty of water; it provides a bountiful harvest of grain for you have ordered it so.” (Psalms 65 NLT) God is not some big cosmic being that created, started, and then walked away. God is involved in the intricate details of our world each and every day.
Why is this so? Because God loves and cares about His creation. He made us to have relationship with us. He wants to know what is going on in our lives. He wants to be the person we run to when we are hurting and when we are celebrating. God created you for intimacy with him. I am thankful for that!
