    V. 1 - " ......."O Lord my God ......."; As I read this just now - it brought to mind Thomas, "My Lord and my God." Thomas was a Jew and would NEVER called Jesus "my Lord AND my God" if he hadn't believed Jesus was - God the creator of everything - Deut. 6:4.

    His mercy is new every morning. He is unsearchable yet close as a brother. He is majestic yet everpresent. Enigmatic.

    psalm 33:4 for the word of the LORD is right all HIS works are done in truth ---- 2nd thessalonians and with all deceiveableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they received not the love of the truth that they might be saved

    Ps 104: 2,3 Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain,...who maketh the clouds his chariot, who walketh upon the wings of the wind.
    These verses are some of the very most beautiful in the entire bible. The whole chapter is wonderful. The last verse is interesting to dream about as well.
    yes ,my dear brothers and sisters after reading this psalm 104 it is clear that lord jesus is the only one who designed the earth and its belongings ,so let us all not forget his deeds forever and praise him till our last breath
