The Heavens Declare
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalm 14:1
Recommended Reading – Psalm 14
Physicist Tony Rothman wrote an article for Discovery Magazine discussing the problem secular scientists face with the complexity of the universe and the remarkable scientific laws and fine-tuning of the cosmos. “When confronted with the order and beauty of the universe and the strange coincidences of nature,” he wrote, “it’s very tempting to take the leap of faith from science into religion. I am sure many physicists want to. I only wish they would admit it.”
Acknowledging the creative power of God isn’t really a leap of faith; it’s obvious for those who are honest and objective. Psalm 19 says (in The Message): “God’s glory is on a tour in the skies…. Madame Day holds classes each morning, Professor Night lectures each evening. Their words aren’t heard … but their… unspoken truth is spoken everywhere.”
The universe is filled with the evidence of God’s greatness. In awesome wonder we can consider the worlds He has made. When we see His stars and hear His rolling thunder, we can praise Him. We can say with the writer of Psalm 104: “O Lord my God, You are very great.”
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee: How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
