The Handiwork of God
“The sun shall be no more your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give you light; but the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.” Isaiah 60:19
While driving home from church a few nights ago, I couldn’t help but notice the moon. It was bright and full. When I arrived at my destination before entering into the garage, I stopped for a few moments and took one last glance of the celestial view God provided for the night. I began to think about the craftiness of God’s handiwork and design and how He created everything on earth and how everything has a purpose. The sun shines by day and the moon shines by night, the stars, the clouds, the wind, rain and the snow, the mountains, and oceans all has a purpose. And the only purpose He has for me is to serve Him. We should be honored to serve a selfless God who created everything and set this world in motion to sustain us. And most importantly, He unselfishly gave us the hope of eternal life through His Son Jesus.
When is the last time you stopped and looked at the handiwork of God? “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1. We should shout His name with joy for every breath we take; He is real.
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
1. Read your Bible and learn about creation. “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
2. Go to church and meet with other Christians. “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24–25
3. Stop and smell the roses, and give God the Glory.
