Seeing is believing

IMG_0290“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.  There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.  Their voice goes out into all the earth their words to the ends of the world.  Psalm 19:1-4

Have you ever wondered how someone who does not have the Bible would know that God exists?  The psalmist David says that all of creation speaks of the greatness of its creator.  It is seen day and night by the inhabitants of the earth and proclaims all powerful, sovereign God to be in existence.  David continues in verses 7b-8 “The statues of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.  The precepts of the LORD are right giving joy to the heart.  The commands of the LORD are radiant giving light to the eyes.”   Not only do we have creation to testify to God and who He is, but we have God’s Word.  The Words of the Bible are God’s words and lead us to Him and allow us to see Him as LORD.

After Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the religious leaders told Jesus he should scold his followers for proclaiming Him to be king and Lord.   “I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19:40   Jesus knew that all creation would proclaim Him Lord.  God created all things to desire to glorify Him as creator and LORD.  What about you?  Do you know God?  Have you seen His creation and yet do not proclaim praise to the Creator?  Think about a beautiful sunset, a mountain’s splendor, a spider’s web and then ask- is God’s creation telling me of His existence? Do you need to read the Bible and ask God to show Himself to you through its words?

Faith comes from knowing, seeing and believing in God.  I pray you will encounter the living God today.
