In his letter to the Romans, Paul says that, “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 since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:19-20)
The greatest evidence for the existence of God is no further away from any of us than a walk into the woods. We live lives now surrounded by our creations and hardly ever stop anymore to appreciate what God has freely given us. We wake up in houses that we built or purchased. We get into our cars and drive to work or school. Then we get back into our cars at the end of our busy days and go back to our homes. Its no wonder that so many people today struggle to find God. They’ve lost the opportunity to stand in wonder and awe at this world that God has created.
Psalm 148 is an incredible song, in that all of creation is shown singing praises to its Creator.
Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights above.
2 Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
3 Praise him, sun and moon;
praise him, all you shining stars.
4 Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters above the skies.
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for at his command they were created,
6 and he established them for ever and ever—
he issued a decree that will never pass away.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,
9 you mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
old men and children.
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,[b]
the praise of all his faithful servants,
of Israel, the people close to his heart.
Praise the Lord.
