Creation Testifies About It's Creator—Romans 1:20
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse" (Romans 1:20)
Creation itself testifies about its Creator. King David said in the Psalms, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Ps. 19:1). It is impossible to live on this planet without recognizing God, as nature is proof to His existence.
By observing how specific and exact the interworkings of creation are, one can only come to the conclusion that there is a God. This is by design.
This Psalm goes on to say, “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" (Ps. 19:1-3). Creation’s voice goes out and translates into every known and spoken language. What it is revealing is the glory and majesty of God. By observing how specific and exact the interworkings of creation are, one can only come to the conclusion that there is a God. This is by design.
God’s glory is displayed by the things around us. His invisible qualities, eternal power, and divine nature are shown to us in how we are made, the world in which we live, and the universe surrounding us. Because God has made himself clearly known through the creation of our universe, humankind is without an excuse before Him.
Instead of looking to human wisdom to make sense of life whether through books, knowledge, or the pursuit of understanding. Today, it is my prayer that we will take a moment to observe how unique and beautiful the fingerprint of God is in our lives and the world in which we live. I pray this leads us to praising Him for how wonderful He has made everything for us for revealing himself to us by creation.
