God's Hands

“The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship.”
  Psalm 19:1


Summer is a great time to be out in nature enjoying what our heavenly Father has created. We live in a beautiful country and in one of the most beautiful states. As I marvel at the beauty I see all around, the joy I feel spending time outdoors, I need to remember, praise and give thanks, to the designer and creator of it all. The following is worth sharing. From Bruce and Stan “God Is In The Small Stuff.” 

"The world in which we live is one of the greatest proofs for the existence of God. The very fact that the universe exists at all points to a creator. There had to be a beginning and if there was a beginning, there had to be someone to begin everything. God didn’t just create the world. He designed it. Whether you study the cosmos or the human body, you will find the systems and cycles and rhythms of life operate with incredible precision. Like many others, including many top scientists, you will conclude that all of it came from an intelligent designer, who is powerful, personal and loving.”

The apostle Paul put it this way:

“Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power,  for instance and the mystery of his divine being.” Romans 1:20(the Message)


Yet in spite of the evidence around us, people have done a strange thing. They have chosen to focus on the creation rather than the Creator. Paul wrote that people worship

“The things God made but not the Creator himself.” Romans 1:25


“That would be like seeing a beautiful painting and concluding the artist had nothing to do with it, or that the artist really didn’t matter. We just don’t do that. We acknowledge and praise the artist while showing appreciation for the painting. The same thing goes for God’s creation. We are to appreciate it, protect it, and even manage it while preserving it. But we should never worship creation. All praise should go to the Creator, God Almighty.”

Take the time to appreciate God’s created world. When you experience beauty in nature, praise the Creator. You can learn a great deal about God by studying His creation.

God Creator, eternal power and wisdom, may my goal be not to focus on my blessings but on you my Father God. Amen

I heard about Daisy the seeing-eye-dog who saved almost 1,000 people from destruction in the world trade centre. Daisy was given a medal of honour by the Mayor. Some say it's not true, it's a made up story, but who cares! It's truthy.
