The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19:1
As a Christian, I believe that God has revealed Himself to us in three ways – through His Word: the Bible, through His Son: Jesus Christ, and through His creation: nature. Have you ever been somewhere in nature that is so beautiful and amazing that you have to just stop, that it takes your breath away, that you are just in awe?
I was lucky enough to grow up in Western Michigan by the shores of Lake Michigan. It is really a beautiful place. I loved walking on the beach, along the water and looking out at the horizon – the expanse where the water meets the sky.
It looks like the edge of the world, but yet you know that there is much more beyond what your eyes can see.
God has revealed Himself to us through His creation. When we stop to notice how amazing this world we live in truly is, we can’t help but be in awe of it’s Creator.
I’ve been reading through Psalms over the last month or so and there are many references to creation and how it relates to God, it’s Creator. I encourage you to take a few minutes to read what the Bible says about this world that God has created, and be inspired that God has given creation to us for our enjoyment and entrusted it to us for it’s care.
Here’s some verses to get you started:
Psalm 145:9, 17
The heavens proclaim his righteousness and all the peoples see his glory. Psalm 97:6
