Meditation: 5.11.2017. Consider…

Luke 12:27  "Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. “gum blossom

Here in Australia we have many beautiful wildflowers such as the ones here –striking from a distance and exquisite in detail.

God’s creation is awesome in the true sense of the word. When was the last time you had time to sit and really ponder on any part of creation: plants, animals, the rocks and soil, mountains and oceans, rivers and lakes, the heavens and not least, the human body?

We are so fortunate to have the benefit of modern science in being able to realise the complexities of nature; to see things magnified which were once invisible to the naked eye; to have cameras discover things in the universe, the ocean, the human body, never seen before. These things are so readily available that we take them for granted at times and become complacent about the marvels of creation.

The late Dr Paul Brand once said, “After operating on thousands of hands, I must agree with Isaac Newton, ‘In the absence of any other proof, the thumb alone would convince me of God’s existence.’”

We can take any part of the human body and the perfection of design is amazing. We could look at the parts of a flower, the soil it grows in, the animal kingdom, the floor of the ocean, the universe and beyond….. our human brain. What a wonderful God we have.

And God says that there is no excuse for unbelievers  - this has all been there around us for all time, revealing Him to us.

Romans 1:20  “For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. “

Let us join in praise to our God.

Psalm 8:3,4  “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? “

Psalm 8:9  LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! “
