God’s Intricate Creation

God’s Intricate Creation

God leveraged the creative wonders in His questioning of Job in order to get Job to think about Him (see Job 38–41). We ought employ the same strategy, using our imaginations as we look at creation in order to look at the glories of our God.

As you practice this, try looking at each order of magnitude—from the tiniest level to the largest, God’s glory shines through His creation. He created the world to reveal Him, after all. When we pair that general revelation with His special revelation (His Word), we begin to know Him better.

Intricate Creation

Think about the structure of your cells. Each one of them is greater in complexity than the city of Atlanta, pointing to God’s intricate design.

When Darwin wrote on evolution, he did not even begin to understand the structure of cells—he thought they were essentially blobs. But as we delve further into the realm of science, we encounter new questions we didn’t know enough to ask before. It gets richer the deeper we go—the more we see, the more we realize that we understand very little.

Our God is glorious, and He displays His creativity in everything He has made.
