A French astronomer speaking to a group of intellects proudly declared, “I’ve swept the universe with my telescope and I find no God. I’ve searched the skies for years but can find Him nowhere. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion that there is no God.”
Following him a humble, but world renowned violinist came to the stage and said, “Your statement, dear sir, is just as foolish as for me to say, ‘I have searched inside my violin with a microscope to find a musician and I could not find one.’ Because there is music, Sir, there must be a musician.”
And because there is a creation, he concluded, there must be a Creator!
David declares that God has revealed Himself in and through nature. In nature we learn about His power and greatness and our insignificance and finiteness. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we learn about His holiness and our sinfulness. As God reveals Himself through our daily experiences, we learn about His grace and goodness that frees us of our sin and guilt.
We are surrounded by God’s greatness that we see in His many magnificent displays in nature, deeds of kindness and expressions of love. But the greatest display that we see of God is in His work of love, grace, mercy, salvation and hope. What more evidence do we need to have than our salvation, the healing of a loved one or the hope He plants in our hearts?
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for not only making Yourself known to us, but for providing our salvation, the answers to our prayers and the hope of being with You. In the Name of Jesus’ Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
