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 concluded 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 graciousness that frees us of our sin and guilt.
We are surrounded by God’s greatness so that we can see His many magnificent displays in nature. But the greatest display of God is in His work of love, grace, mercy, salvation, and hope in His Son. How can anyone expect more evidence of God than what we see in His Son, our Savior.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for making Yourself visible in nature. But, we see You more clearly and convincingly in Your Son, Jesus, who came to seek and to save us, the lost, In His Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: Psalms 19:1 The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship.
