A Community Newspaper for the way we live

The writer of Psalm 139 must have given some thought to where Creator God exists. He concluded that God is everywhere. He was convinced that God knew everything about him ‒ his location, what he was doing, and where he was going. If he was content having Creator God knowing all of this, it must have been comforting.

I have been noticing how evidence of the Creator is everywhere. The colorful leaves of fall reveal just one phase of their life, which began with green buds that grew and became contributors to the oxygen that we breathe. Soon they will be in compost piles, helping to prepare the soil for other plants to grow.

The life and survival of birds is a story that demands a supernatural explanation. From the tiny hummingbird to the enormous eagle, there is evidence of the Creator. The hummingbird, even with such a tiny body, endures cold winds and snow. When a storm is approaching, the eagle flies into the wind that lifts it above the storm ‒ a principle of flight that existed long before humans invented the kite and the airplane.

The Bible talks about stars beyond number and says that each one has a name. Our solar system is amazing, yet it is only a tiny piece of the universe. The sun has been warming Planet Earth for a long time but shows no indication of running out of energy. Gravity continues to be consistent; and there are no signs of changes ahead.

The human body is the ultimate example of the Creator’s design. Current technology is able to show that when a baby is the size of a lentil (a very small seed), it has a visible heartbeat. That is beyond amazing – it is miraculous. Starting from two cells, a baby’s body develops with a brain, nerve and digestive systems, eyes to see, and ears to hear, and limbs to hold and to walk. The Creator is everywhere in that reality. Only an arrogant human would deny this.

Whether or not a human believes the Bible or has confidence in Creator God, it seems only fair to take the time to read Psalm 139 – at least the first 18 verses, although the entire chapter is amazing. And while reading, ask yourself these questions: “If this is not true, if there is no Creator God, what do I do with these realities that are beyond human explanation? And if there is a Creator God, do I know Him? Do I trust Him?”

There is a way to be sure of a relationship with the Creator. Jesus outlined it in the New Testament in John 14:1-6. I believe that if we take the time to look around, we will see evidence of the Creator everywhere. He has revealed Himself in nature and in Jesus.
