And Then It Is Understood

I read this verse the other day…

“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.”

Romans 1:20

God has invisible qualities that He has made known to us. Those qualities represent His power and they are shown to us through His creation. 

They are clearly seen. Clearly evident to us.

When you look at a rainbow – God is making Himself known to you.

When you see a flower sprout through the ground – that is the work of God.

When you feel the rain on your face or the warmth of the sunshine, those are gifts from the Lord.

Sometimes we seek Him. We wonder where He is. He is all around us.  He is in the beauty of creation that we live in. From the majestic power of the ocean to the delicacy of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. He is making Himself known to us. For no man could make those things. They are God’s signature.

And so none of us is without excuse.

We can’t say, “No one told me about God.” In each one of us, there is something inside of us that God has placed there that realizes He exists.  When we see the world around us and see His power through nature and His creation, it is clear and we understand.
