When I was a child, my cousin and I like to relax in the warm summer freshly cut grass and stare up in the beautiful sky. It was fun to see the white fluffy clouds floating in the blue sky. We watched the clouds as they moved and would try to guess what their form looked like. Sometimes a lion’s head, or a snowman, or a huge boat, and on we would guess, but the form was gone as quickly as it had come.
There were times at night, we would sit on our porch in the swing and look up at the starry sky. We would marvel at how far away the stars were and sing the song, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. We would try to be the first one to find the Big Dipper and some of the other forms the stars made. It was also interesting to us to look up and see the moon as a crescent size and in a few weeks, look up and see a full moon, big and round. Things were so much brighter when the moon was full and we were not as afraid outside when the full moon was lighting our way from my house to her house.
The reason for all this remembering is what I have learned since that time. How wonderful God’s Creation is and how I marveled at it as a child and I still do. It was teaching me then and now.
As I read the Scriptures, I can see how God is teaching mankind that there is a Divine Creator. Paul tells us in the Book of Romans that no one has an excuse to not know God. Even our conscience and His Creation is a clear witness to the existence of God. Add to this knowledge and truth from the Scriptures and respond to it and this can bring you into a saving faith in Jesus Christ, God Son. The greatest miracle we will ever experience is the miracle of salvation. So, then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God, Romans 10:17.
It still amazes me to look at nature and watch the Seasons as they come and go. And a dark cloud that will cover a blue sky and brings rain or in cold weather it will bring beautiful white snow-flakes.
What is there to say now, but God is awesome, holy, sovereign, and the Creator of all things for us to enjoy. We can see God’s Creation with our eyes, and only see God by faith, but we can feel His love, joy, and peace in our heart.
