Throughout history, man discovers the secrets God chooses to reveal. Sometimes they make Bible verses come alive with meaning not understood by the divinely inspired men who penned them or those who read them in the centuries that follow.
“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing . . .” ~Proverbs 25:2
Sometimes we make the discovery ourselves and gasp, awed by the unmatched creativity of our Creator God, who breathed our world into being by His spoken word.
From the detail of a dandelion to the center of a sunflower, God delights in the minuscule: facets found, easily overlooked but revealed to those with eyes that seek Him everywhere.
“Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” ~Luke 12:27
Man creates macro lenses to capture what cannot be seen by the naked eye and God uses our macro technology to reveal His micro detail, a living art like the golden spiral of a Fibonacci sequence.
His creation fills us with wonder from the skies above to the ocean’s depths. Above, He paints in broad strokes, clouds sailing swift or wispy and whimsical.
“. . . the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” ~Nahum 1:3
Below, intricacies of form and color display a creativity beyond our comprehension.
” . . . see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.” ~Psalm 107:24
Lean in and look close, not just with your eyes but with your spirit. Let God reveal His majesty in the mundane. He displays it in a common weed, a summer breeze, a shaft of sunlight that filters through the trees.
We are His finest creation, the pinnacle of His workmanship.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them . . .” ~Genesis 1:27
In His own image! What wondrous love has the Creator for us, the created. Doctors and scientists still marvel at the capabilities and complexities of our bodies, from the smallest cell to the most intricate system.
If you’ve ever doubted God’s affection for you, consider that in all of His creation, it was you He made in His own image.
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . .” ~Psalm 139:14
How has God revealed Himself to you today? Where do you see Him?
