Tuesday, March 21 – Jeremiah 10:12

Mar 20, 2023

It is He who made the earth by His power,

Who established the world by His wisdom;

And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.

When an author writes a book or an artist works on a masterpiece, that person has a purpose in mind. From the colors artists use on their canvases to the themes authors use in their novels, each work is created intentionally. The greatest works of art and literature compel us to desire more information about the authors and the purpose for their creations.

 

Likewise, when we look at creation, we can behold the Master behind the masterpiece. Colossians 1:16-17 speaks about Jesus saying, “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or rulers, or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” As we grow in our faith and learn about who Jesus is, we are not growing further away from the truth about the world but getting closer to its source, learning about the One who is behind it all. Something shifts when we learn and study what we see in the world and understand that it all points back to Him. What we might have previously thought of as accidental we begin to see as intentional. What once seemed insignificant now reveals a much greater purpose.

 

When we learn about the world, we do not have to live in fear that what we find may dismantle our faith. Instead, we can be encouraged that our God is the One who established all things, and all things point back to Him whether others recognize it or not.

 

  • Where do you find beauty in God’s creation most often?
  • How can understanding all things in creation point back to God change how you approach studying the world?
  • Pray and ask for eyes to see God’s work in the creation around you.
