The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge. (Psalm 19:1 -2)
For what can be known about God is plain to them because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, namely his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly perceived ever snce the Creation of the world, in the things that have been made, so they are without excuse (Rom. 1: 19 – 20).
What we call “nature,” or more accurately “creation,” is enough for us to know that there is a Creator.
From the vastness of the skies above with its planets, stars, and galaxies, to the depths of the oceans with their countless incredible creatures, from the majestic mountain peaks, to the flora and fauna in the valleys below, from forests to jungles to desert to plains, all these things speak of a Creator.
And then there is mankind 7.28 billion of us – each with our own individual DNA. No two identical.
While I usually go about my day, contentedly living my life, and conscious of how each person can make a difference and be an influence for good on occasion I become overwhelmed by the vastness of God, by the concept of eternity, and by my own smallness in the universe. On those occasions I feel like a grain of sand.
But then I resolve to be the best, the shiniest, grain of sand that I could be to the glory of God.
