Nature still declares God’s glory

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” (Psalm 19:1)

Like a sculpture or a painting reflects something of the artist, so creation tells us something about God. Sin has damaged this picture, but it is still there. Psalm 19 says that the heavens and the skies proclaim the work of God’s hands. Paul’s letter to the Romans says that “the things that have been made” clearly reveal their Creator’s invisible attributes. We all know how impressive the sunrise can be, or the fragile beauty of a butterfly. Nature constantly shows us God’s eternal power and divine nature (Romans 1:20).

The Bible also makes clear that we can’t perceive everything we need to know about the Lord from nature. We also need another source of revelation, His Word. But the information from nature should be enough to recognize that there is a God who made the world. If we don’t admit that, God will hold us accountable for suppressing the truth by our unrighteousness (Romans 1:18).

Some people think that science and faith are polar opposites. But no, the more we learn about the world around us, the more clearly we can see the work of God and give Him the glory!

Do you consider nature as a work of art?
