Creation surrounds us all day long — from a peaceful sunrise in the morning to the moon rising in the early twilight, and the starry night that follows. It is full of sights and smells — fruit trees in blossom, wild roses beside a rock wall, and hillsides of daffodils; the sparkle of sunlight on water and the salt wind off the ocean; fresh cut hay, newborn colts, and tiny birds. Creation proclaims to everyone who lives on earth that a Creator exists. No living thing has ever been observed to spontaneously assemble itself, not even God.
The living things all around are examples of God’s workmanship. Like an eye-witness, they speak of their first hand knowledge of their Creator. What do they say? They urge us to honor our Creator and give Him thanks. Who hasn’t experienced a feeling of peace rise within as he sits on the edge of an overlook or gazes out over a stretch of ocean to where it meets the sky? As close as our breath, this inner sense of truth assures us that creation’s Creator is ours too. It lets us know that He is good, and that He is worth finding. What creature can do anything without its Creator?
