Though most scholars say the “morning stars” in this verse were probably angelic beings, other scriptures tell us that the celestial bodies do indeed declare the glory of God.
How? The stars not only show forth God’s handiwork in the universe, as they shine forth in the darkness, but also “sing praises”! David tells us in Psalms 148:3 (NKJV), “Praise Him, all you stars of light!” The Hebrew word for ‘praise’ here is ‘halal,’ which means to boast, celebrate, glory, and sing (praise).
According to a report by BBC News science correspondent Pallab Ghosh on October 23, 2008, scientists recorded the sound of three stars. (You can read the article here.)
The article reported that the team working on this project found that, for the first time, the sounds enabled them to gather information about the inner working or processes of the stars. Each star has its own individual sound, depending on its “age, size, and chemical composition.” The sound of each star they recorded indicated what is occurring inside the star and that “the entire star is pulsating.”
God spoke and all matter came alive at the sound of His voice, at His Word. All matter contains molecules, and, within those molecules, atoms flow and circulate in resonation.
The dictionary says ‘resonance’ is a resounding, a reinforcing and prolonging of sound by reflection, to pulsate with the same frequency as the source.
Does the fact that the stars pulsate with sound strike you as awesome? It sure does me! The outward sounds, or singing, reveal that they resonate with the same frequency as their Source.
Within that matter is God’s voice imprint, still to this day, resonating in the entire universe, within every molecule, every atom, and every cell of every created thing – plants, animals, planets, sun, moon, stars, mankind, everything. His Word never dies, for the Bible says, “the word of God which lives and abides forever…the word of the Lord remains forever,” (1 Peter 1:23, 25 Received Greek Text) whether that Word is His written Word or His spoken Word. It is still alive.
The living, breathing Word of God is eternal and gives “life and breath and all things to all.” (Acts 17:25 RGT)
Just as the stars, each of us has our own individual sound, depending “age, size, and chemical composition” as the result of what is occurring inside of us, pulsating with the same frequency as our Source.
One day, as I praised the Lord in my prayer time, He whispered to my heart, “This is the way to My heart, to My throne, to My Living Room!” Wow! My praise brings me into the Living space where He abides, where He is seated in the Throne Room. My praise connects me to that alive space of power around Him, the space full of Eternal Life! This is where I resonate with the same frequency as the Creator of the universe.
Has God’s Word been created in your heart? Is there a resonance and reflection of its inner working in your heart? Does your heart sing with praise to its Maker?
Sing any tune, make up any words, but sing to your Beloved. Sing the praises of the One Who deserves them. It will make a difference in your attitude and in your circumstances. You will resonate with the same frequency as your Source.
