Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse…
Recently, I read a news story about a bird, a bar-tailed godwit, that migrated nonstop from Alaska to Tasmania in Australia. That’s 8,435 miles without taking a break. Scientists had tagged the bird with a microchip when it was born, and it was only five months old when it made the trip. It was by all accounts a record-breaking journey. The bird was only five months old, and it had never made the trip before. There was no indication it followed older birds, so the question looms, how did it know where it was going?
Scientists are still stumped when it comes to understanding migratory bird instincts, but people of true faith know the answer. It can be summed up in one powerful word, or better yet, one powerful name. God! God’s attributes are clearly seen in His creation. How does one little bird know how to get from Alaska to Tasmania without a map, a satellite, or GPS? There’s only one clear explanation. God showed it the way.
In the book of Romans Paul tells us we should see God in creation. We should be able to see God in that bird. Every person who has ever lived should have known there is a God simply by experiencing His creation. Whether it be oceans or mountains, redwoods or tulips, elephants or little birds that do amazing things, people who turn a blind eye to creation and claim there is no God are without excuse. God is real, and the wonder of His Creation is the proof.
Have a God Filled Week,
