You Were in the Mind of God!

You, LORD, are the only true and living God. You will rule for all time. When you are angry the earth shakes, and nations are destroyed.   You told me to say that idols did not create the heavens and the earth, and that you, the LORD, will destroy every idol.   With your wisdom and power you created the earth and spread out the heavens.   The waters in the heavens roar at your command. You make clouds appear-- you send the winds from your storehouse and make lightning flash in the rain.   People who make idols are so stupid! They will be disappointed, because their false gods are not alive.   Idols are merely a joke, and when the time is right, they will be destroyed.   But you, Israel's God, created all things, and you chose Israel to be your very own. Your name is the LORD All-Powerful.

Jeremiah 10: 10 - 16

The basic debate between the righteous and the unrighteous is not about “good and evil.”  It is rather about who is the Creator of all things!  Those who are opposed to God and His Ways say that the earth and even life itself was the accidental result of a cosmic explosion of unknown origin!  They call this “foolish speculation” science.  They also say that believing in a Creator God is the real foolishness!

Many times “scientists” do discover truths that God has hidden from the very beginning.  But they often refuse to give God the Glory for what they have found and turn back to their “theories” without firm evidence.  

The temptation to not honor God is also a problem for every man.  When you look at the sky at night you see evidence of the Creator God.  When you enjoy a beautiful rose and smell it’s delightful aroma you are tempted to ignore the One who designed and created the rose!  

Instead of spending your time criticizing others for not recognizing God as the Creator of everything there is, use the moment you see anything around you to remember that God is the One who made it!  

“Lord Jesus, You are the One who imagined everything there is, and then You Created the things that Your mind saw!  Praise Your Holy Name now and forever.  Amen.”
