::Devotional:: ‘Revealing The Invisible’

October 15, 2010

What do you think about when you look at the twinkling stars set against the backdrop of the dark night sky?  How do you feel when you’re driving home at sunset and the sky because a canvas of hues – red, orange, purple, and yellow – accented by thick clouds and the darkened strokes of the coming night?  What goes through your mind when you stand  atop a mountain and look out over the rolling hills and deep valleys?  Are you aware that in all those things and more, God is revealing two things to you?

The Bible says that through the intricate order and design of nature God is revealing himself to us.  You could say that the evidence of nature is educating us, in part, on the nature of God.

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 men are without excuse.  Romans 1:20

Have you ever stood outside on a hot summer day and began to notice evidence of a coming storm?  The leaves turn, the temperature drops, the sky darkens, and the wind picks up.  Can you actually see the wind and it’s force?  No, you see the evidence of the wind as it blows and moves the trees.  You feel the evidence of the wind as it blows across your face.  You hear the evidence of the wind as it howls past your ears.  While the wind is invisible, it is still observable to you.  The invisible has been revealed.

God has done the same for himself in nature.  Romans 1:20 says that through nature God’s invisible qualities are revealed.  Specifically, the scriptures mention God’s eternal power and his divine nature.  While God may be invisible, he is none the less observable.  He has revealed himself to us that we may know him more.

Seek to observe the Almighty God today.  The invisible has been revealed.
