GOD’S WORD FOR FEBRUARY 24
GOD’S WORD FOR FEBRUARY 24 ~ ~ Romans 1:20 ~ ~ “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…”
Throughout the centuries, people have noticed, whether or not they believed in a Creator, that there is a mathematically precise structure to the universe and everything in it.
One everyday example of this precision can be found in plants. Many plants, including elm trees, grow their leaves, twigs and branches placed exactly halfway around the stem from each other. Next in the series are plants like the beech tree, with leaves placed one third of the way around the stem from the previous leaves. Third in the series are plants like the oak, with leaves placed at two fifths of a turn. The holly plant is next at three eighths, then larches at five thirteenths – and the sequence goes on.
Notice the number sequence of these fractions: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13 and so on. Each number is the sum of the two numbers that come just before it in the sequence. This particular mathematical pattern is called the Fibonacci series and is recognized as a basic mathematical series. Such mathematical precision is not arrived at by accident.
Such mathematical precision is only the product of power and intelligence, even as Paul says in Romans 1: “What may be known about God is manifest… His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made.” And while they are not flocking to the Bible, this is why many scientists are abandoning evolution!
God’s ways are so far above our ways, that we couldn’t even imagine, much less find, all the precision things in Creation.
As we see the sky, or woods, or ground, or animals, or plants, or our fellow human beings, we can constantly be in awe of the Glory and Majesty of our wonderful Creator God, and Father. It should make us even more grateful for our salvation through Jesus Christ, and our personal relationship with Him.
If remnants of the glory of His creation are still visible, what little we can learn of it, after the corruption fell on it because of man’s sin, just think, how glorious it will be when the corruption is gone, and we will interact and learn of it in it’s perfection as it was in the week of creation!!!
Both we, and creation itself are waiting for that day!
Romans 8:19-22 Amp.
For [even the whole] creation [all nature] waits eagerly for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration and futility, not willingly [because of some intentional fault on its part], but by the will of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will also be freed from its bondage to decay [and gain entrance] into the glorious freedom of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been moaning together as in the pains of childbirth until now.
