Paul said: “His [God’s] invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable.” (Romans 1:20) The sun rises and the sun sets every morning without a doubt. The moon cast its night-light in just the right amount. It is estimated that the number of bird species number into the 10,000. Do you notice the flowers when you take a walk or do just quickly walk by as if they were not even there. There are over 250,000 species of flowers. Imagine that. How is it that when we look up on a clear night we see a vast number of stars. God knows them all by name. How much more important than, are we to him. From the moment God created humans, they could see the evidence of Creator’s qualities in all that he has made. As Romans 1:20 says to not see his qualities is inexcusable.
These things are not hidden from us but creation is all around us to enjoy. However, with our hectic lives, how often do we stop and notice Gods beautiful creation? Even our own bodies and how amazing they work for us. It’s clearly seen. If we want to notice. To know creation is to know our God and his wonderful qualities and wisdom. It is so obvious in his creation that he reveals many things to us. Even his amazing power is demonstrated in our natural word.
That evidence is all around us. It is not hidden in nature but is “clearly seen.” From the largest to the smallest, creation clearly reveals not only that there is a Creator but also that he has wonderful qualities.
Does not the intelligent design that we so easily notice in nature reveal to us God’s wisdom? Do not the starry heavens and the pounding waves show his amazing power? Does not the variety of foods that delight our palate and the beauty of sunrises and sunsets reveal his love for mankind?—Psalm 104:24; Isaiah 40:26.
Not noticing is” inexcusable”, because it all is so obvious that it all was created by an intelligent Creator. I love that scripture in Romans.
We are get caught up this fast paced world. We see crime and violence all around us. But do we see the beauty as well.
What will you notice today?
