As you do not know the path of the wind,
or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,
so you cannot understand the work of God,
the Maker of all things.
Ecclesiastes 11:5 (NIV)
Each tiny piece of God’s beautiful creation exemplifies the work of a master artisan. Take a few moments today to get outside and observe some of the intricate details in nature, and you’ll be amazed at the magnificent workmanship of God ~ The Maker of all Things. There are so many awe-inspiring mysteries in nature that we will never fully comprehend ~ like how a baby’s body is formed in a mother’s womb or how a caterpillar metamorphosizes within a cocoon into a beautiful butterfly. Nature plays a very important role in God’s grand plan. In fact the very first verse of the Bible tells us that “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 (NIV) And since the very beginning, He has used the creation to point us to the Creator.
“For ever since the creation of the world, His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks).” Romans 1:20 (AMP)
The marvelous creation not only teaches us about God’s divine nature and infinite wisdom, but it also glorifies God on its own. That fact should inspire us to do the same through worship and praise of our Heavenly Father.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky displays his handiwork. Day after day it speaks out; night after night it reveals his greatness. There is no actual speech or word, nor is its voice literally heard. Yet its voice echoes throughout the earth; its words carry to the distant horizon. In the sky he has pitched a tent for the sun. Like a bridegroom it emerges from its chamber; like a strong man it enjoys running its course. It emerges from the distant horizon, and goes from one end of the sky to the other; nothing can escape its heat.” (Psalm 19:1 – 6)
The Creator takes great care in watching over His creation, yet nothing in all of creation is more valuable to Him than you. He designed you as a one-of-a-kind original, and He knows each detail of your life…including your name and number of hairs on your head! Never doubt that God loves you dearly and is watching over each moment of your life.
Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore do not fear; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29 – 31)
