Knowing God Through Observation

When we observe God’s creation, we cannot help but come to know Him. When we remove ourselves from the hustle and bustle of the world and go to the wilderness, as Jesus frequently did, and draw near to Him, we will find Him and know Him. If we stop and take time seek Him while we work in the garden, wonder at the sunrise, stroll in the park, hike in the mountains, walk along the seashore or by a lake—early when no one else is around—He will be there waiting for us, to show us the wonders and majesty of His handiworks, and to reveal Himself to us. ” Proverbs 8:17 “I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.”

Job 12:10 “In whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?”

Isaiah 40:12 “Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, and marked off the heavens by the span, and calculated the dust of the earth by the measure, and weighed the mountains in a balance and the hills in a pair of scales?”

Isaiah 41:19-20 “”I will put the cedar in the wilderness, the acacia and the myrtle and the olive tree; I will place the juniper in the desert together with the box tree and the cypress, that they may see and recognize, and consider and gain insight as well, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.”

John 1:3 “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”

Job 12:7-10 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”

Psalm 96:11-12 “Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.”

Romans 1:20 “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

Psalm 104:24-25 “How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number—living things both large and small.”

God reveals Himself very clearly through His creation, so there is no acceptable excuse for anyone to not know Him. “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!” Psalm 150:6

About E.J.

My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour. I am a Christian artist and writer living in Gloucester, MA, where I have been living since God led me here in September of 2010. I am a painter, photographer and writer who, by the grace of God, has lived and worked as an artist for over 25 years, allowing me to separate myself from the World and walk in faith, to a large degree. I pray you are blessed, built up in your faith and Christian walk, and become an interactive participant in God's Morning. We're here as Christ's body, supporting and building each other up in all righteousness, in His name.
