For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:20
But as for me, I will hope continually,
And will praise You yet more and more. Psalm 71:14
How do we come to know God? He is infinite. He Omniscient. He is Omnipresent. He is Omnipotent. He always existed. He is the Great I AM. How can I wrap my brain and heart around this God from this tiny life I am here on earth? I feel so small when I think about my Creator, my Strength, my Healer, my Redeemer. How can I know that Him?
Matthew Henry stated: The being of God may be apprehended, but cannot be comprehended.
How can I call Him all of these things when I cannot even know Him? How can I know that He will be so much for me when He is invisible to me?
As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. Ecclesiastes 11:5
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Psalm 139:15
His Word tells me that He is all that He says He is. The Word is the Truth. I believe God’s Word.
I look all around me…at the trees, the birds, the flowers…seeing God’s natural beauty.
God shows Himself in ways that are birthed in the natural. We see His beauty all around us.
Nevertheless He left not Himself without witness, in that He did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. Acts 14:17
The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Psalm 19:1
Lift up your eyes on high
And see Who has created these stars,
The One Who leads forth their host by number,
He calls them all by name;
Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power,
Not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:26
“The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’” Acts 17:24-28
When I find these words in the Bible telling me that the LORD is, and He is all, I trust and open my heart.
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2
Father, You are God and Creator of my soul, body, and mind. You know all. You are over all. Your beauty surrounds me. I see it in the trees, the streams, the color of Fall, the flowers of Spring and Summer, the rain and the snow. I hear it from the tops of trees…a bird’s chirping. I see their colors. They are of You and remind me of Your amazing touch on all. You painted a beautiful natural world. I see it through my eyes, hear it through my ears, and sense it in my heart and soul. Your world is my temporary home. One day I will be in a Home with You. Oh, what a glorious day that will be. The natural beauty that is here in the things around me, the National Parks, the breadth and blues of the oceans, the clouds and sky above me…these give me a glimpse of the beauty of our Heavenly Home. Father God, You are the Artist and Creator of this natural world here. I cannot even imagine the Heavenly Home You have prepared for us.. What beauty You have created. Thank You, for I come to know You a bit better each day as I see my world. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
