Understanding God

I look around at creation and I see the beauty, the perfection, the order, the precision, of God. Take a flower, or a tiny bug and examine it in detail. Doing so can bring me to my knees in awe and wonder. Every blade of grass, every leaf on every tree, every mountain, every ocean, every moon and star, is testimony to the character of God.

We have the knowledge that the sun is 93 million miles away and it is a continual burning fire. It is only one star within a galaxy and there are numerous galaxies with stars and planets and moons. The Bible tells us that God created the stars and in the Psalms we read that he calls them by name. The planets and stars and suns and moons are suspended at a precise distance from each other and consistently rotate and revolve at the exact speed required to maintain the balance of the universe.

When we begin to glimpse who God is, our reverence for him will be so great that we may not be able to help but fall down and worship him. Like the prophet of old, we may even despise ourselves, in light of his greatness.
