Day 304 That the hand of the Lord has done this

You would expect a painter to sign his painting. So why would people not expect a creator to sign his creation?

This flower is beautiful, but it does not simple exist to be beautiful. It exists to give glory to its creator, and the flower has a place in this delicate eco system that we inhabit. Every part of it looks wondrous, like a whole years of imagination had gone into designing it, and who knows how long the creator took in thinking about each physical thing before speaking them into existence through Jesus, the Word incarnate.

Every part of this flower has a purpose to help it live, give something to the eco system and then recreate its life again so it can populate the planet. In this next verse it is evident that everything on this earth can teach us something. It may teach us the best way to build aeroplanes or the best way to utilise the suns energy, as many scientist are using these nature creations to teach them and inspire them. But more importantly these creations also point to God, they have His very signature within them.

Job 12:7-10

“But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
And the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you;
And the fish of the sea will explain to you.
Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the Lord has done this,
10 In whose hand is the life of every living thing,
And the breath of all mankind?

Dear Creator, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Without you nothing would have been created and yet we daily ignore your wondrous works of glory. Let us send praise up to you every day and thank you for this wondrous world.

Amen
