God is everywhere. His Word is everywhere in everything he created! Look at the functional design of a leaf as it exists on the branches of a tree, or the beauty of the night stars as they twinkle at us. I love to sit on a beach and look out to where the horizon meets the sky. It is majestic! Everything God has created in nature is to bless us. We are blessed with sunrises, sunsets, flowers, magnificent birds and animals all intended to remind us of God’s love:
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Romans 1:20
The human body is remarkably designed. It is one of God’s greatest works. Its ability to grow, develop, reproduce, repair and heal is unsurpassed by anything man has attempted to design. The human mind has the ability to think and choose; again, another reminder of the love of God.
One of the greatest treats that you can do for yourself is to go out and take a walk through the woods, or stroll on the beach and look at all that has been provided for us. The closer you look at the details of God’s creation, the more perfect it becomes. The opposite is true of man’s work unless it is inspired by God.
When man attempts to redefine life on his own terms, and twists God’s word or even dismisses God entirely, he thumbs his nose at God. There are other people who have pushed to go beyond God’s word in terms of laws, traditions and requirements. They seem energetic but are actually presumptuous in the thinking that God can be improved. If a person thinks he can improve upon God, he just hasn’t really seen God. It is through this type of unbelief that people get cheated out of a life free and abundant. We should never consent or go along with the pressure of the world to conform or accept and condone those things that are opposite to what God has provided. When we do it isn’t that God turns his back on us, we turn our backs on God and are not able to see his love clearly.
