God made himself known to us. The splintering sunbeams, the majestic sky, the sea that rolls just to the edge and stops … these all shout there is a divine creator who is so into the details, the science, the creativity of our lives.
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone- while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy? Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’?” (Job 38:4-11)
He makes himself known to us … the very story we just celebrated for weeks … the coming of the babe … as one author writes … he moved into our neighborhood.
So through nature his wisdom and greatness is proclaimed and through the life of his son his goodness and grace are given as gifts.
Consider his goodness to you today.
