God in Nature
God has made Himself known to mankind in a powerful way people often ignore...His creation. Romans 1:18-20 tells us,
For the wrath of God is revealed from
heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress
the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is
manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation
of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood
by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so
that they are without excuse.
God speaks to people through
nature...through His creation. I am confident that there is a point in
every person's life where there comes an awareness of God. Whether it
is looking at a shooting star, or at a sunset, or at a blade of grass,
the thought occurs to them, "This didn't just get here. This didn't
just happen. There must be a God."
Creation speaks to us of the Godhead. It is a revelation of God. The book of Psalms says, Night unto night shows forth knowledge. And it says the heavens declare the glory of God. The firmament shows His handiwork. Creation speaks to us of God.
But notice what this passage says. This revelation of
God has come to men, but some have wanted to suppress it. They came to
that point and thought, "You know what? If I find out about this, then
I'm going to become responsible. So I don't think I want to know."
The natural bent of men and women is to suppress the
truth, but God is speaking loudly and clearly of His greatness and
reality through His creation. Praise Him today for revealing His beauty
and power through nature, and use it to point people to Him.
