Creation Moment 7/9/2017 - Creation in Praise of the Lord

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Isaiah 55:12

Every now and again, the Biblical writers were so lifted up in spirit as they contemplated the glory of God and His great works of creation and redemption that they could sense the very creation itself singing out in happy praises. "The heavens declare the glory of God" (Psalm 19:1) is one of the most familiar of these divinely inspired figures of speech, but there are many others.

Often these praises are in contemplation of God's final return to complete and fulfill all His primeval purposes in creation, as in the above passage. This better time is also in view in our text, which looks forward to a time when "instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off" (Isaiah 55:13).

And this all points ahead to the eventual removal of the great curse which now dominates creation because of man's sin (Genesis 3:14-19). For the present, "the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Romans 8:22). HMM
