I love Romans 1:20:
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.NIV
Did you catch all the verse goodies? “Invisible qualities”, “Eternal power” and “Divine nature”. And then the zinger- “Have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that PEOPLE ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE.” BOOM! And as they say “Mic Drop!”
Every day God puts on a show through creation. It does spark constant questions in my mind of “how?”, “why?” and it also leaves me breathless.
Are you searching daily for these invisible qualities of God? Are they leaving you breathless? Friends, nobody can say God doesn’t exist, or that they never knew he was reaching out.
There are so many things pressing down on us as American citizens as well as Christian citizens of heaven. These are weighty, often frightening… but do not let those things of this world bog you down. Look to God’s creation to fill you and give you additional strength to meet the day.
I find strength and am humbled watching a sunrise or sunset. I am encouraged by the spring frog croaking, quiet starry nights, lightning strikes, and thunderstorms. Amazing! Awesome!
I pray today you can come up from under the “yuck” of life and marvel at the invisible!
- Looking for the invisible with you and MARVELING at what we are finding. God is here and he loves us so much he leaves us notes everywhere. AMEN
