“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.” – Psalm 19:1-4 New Living Translation
To believe that this world and everything in it simply came into being on its own is, for me, much harder to believe than a supreme being orchestrating the creation of all things and putting them in their proper place. Any fault or irregularities in this world come from the hand of man, not God. There are those in Christian circles who now believe that there actually was a “Big Bang”, but instead of it being arbitrary, actually coincided with the words “ ‘Let there be light!’ and there was light” (Genesis 1:3).
Think of all the wondrous sights throughout the world that have not been touched by man. The radiant beauty of majestic mountains; the lush, green of the world’s forests; cascading waterfalls; babbling brooks; freshly fallen snow; meadows filled with wild flowers. Man continues to destroy that which surrounds him in the name of progress and because of the free will afforded us God allows it.
Free will is a wonderful gift. We can believe or disbelieve, it’s solely our choice. However, to look at the beauty that surrounds us and not believe in a higher power is mind-boggling. People seem to think that if only God would reveal himself they would believe in him. They didn’t believe when Jesus came into the world over 2000 years ago, why would they believe now? The Lord waits patiently for the doubters to finally see, but time will run out one day and all the opportunities that were passed over or pushed aside will gnaw at them as they live apart from the one who created them for all eternity. Don’t just look at the beauty all around you; see it for what it truly is, the creative hand of God. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!Resource: The Life Application Study Bible.
