When we see mankind, earth, skies, trees, grass, mountains, valleys, lakes, oceans, deserts, deer, elk, dogs, cats, horses, stars, planets, solar systems, galaxies, etc. we see God and His attributes and all are Good! Scripture says when we see these things it is impossible for anyone not to know God. God spoke it and it was so! How awesome is that!!??
Unfortunately today, many people have lost sight of the origin and purpose of the Creation and have chosen to be more concerned about the process of how the universe came to be. Science has revealed to us facts about God’s Creation that are quite staggering. The earth is moving around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour. Incredible as that is, not only is the earth moving around the sun, but the earth is drifting with the sun - the center of our galaxy - through intergalactic space. Our galaxy is one of over a billion galaxies in the universe! Each galaxy is made up of gases and a large number of stars (over a million). Our "galaxy", the Milky Way Galaxy, is moving through space at a speed of approximately 490,000 miles an hour! It takes our Galaxy about 200 million years to rotate once!
Wow! I do not know about you but it is hard for my mind to comprehend these things! If a person is totally honest with themselves, they are naive to believe that the universe occurred by random chance and that the earth is a result of two particles "banging" together in space. It takes more faith for a person to believe that all creation "evolved" than it does to believe that God created the universe. Often, automobiles cannot pass one another on a highway without running into one another! So how could the Earth and the Universe that are so vast and so well coordinated just come to be?!
There are many examples using probabilities that clearly show it is not possible for the universe to have occurred by randomness. We won’t go into examples or mathematics here because of space restraints so let’s cut to the chase. Are you enjoying the creation God prepared for you? Or are you denying the Creation was a divine work? If this is so, I have a question for you. Are you denying God created us in order to avoid God? What better way to avoid an omnipotent God than to deny that the universe in which you live, as well as yourself was made by the Creator? No Creator, no God, no personal accountability, eh? God didn’t have to create the universe or us. I want you to know that He did so because He loves you and wants you to love Him and walk with Him. God made us all in His image. There is nothing that prevents any of us from coming to Him. You can walk with God every day! God created the earth for us! He created things in order (plants were created after light, etc.) and he created mankind to rule over His work! In doing so, we were created to glorify God. It is such a humbling thing to realize that the God of the Universe allows us to participate in His work. Every act of kindness is a reflection of God’s glory! Every act of worship blesses God. Wow!
When God created mankind to inhabit the earth, He gave mankind "free will". This is a characteristic that allows us to be totally free of God if we choose to be. It is an amazing thing for the Creator to allow His creations to reject Him and some do. Do you? God, the most powerful on High, allows you to keep Him at arm’s length if you choose to. Think about it. God could have programmed us to be robots and serve Him. But He didn’t. No, God didn’t program us or train us. He just wants us to love Him for whom He is. It’s that simple. Maybe too simple for some to believe!
So here’s my challenge to you. God created all things because He loves you! Do you love Him? Have you accepted Jesus, God’s Son, for your salvation? One day, God will call His children home. Won’t you come to Him and become a child of His? The Creator of the Universe stands waiting for you to come to Him. Once you do, all His Creations are yours for eternity!
