“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? Job 12:7-9 ESV
Two Sundays ago I watched a video call “God of Wonders” which is available for streaming from Netflix. One of the verses they used in the video is today’s verses from the book of Job. In the twelfth chapter Job is answering his friends who essentially are telling Job that he must have done something to incur all the bad things that have happened to him. Job is feeling sorry for himself but still he recognizes that everything in in God’s hands.
I thought this would be a good verse to end our study of Genesis 1 to 3 and it also goes hand and hand with my blog posts on evolution. Even without the Bible there is enough evidence for us to believe in God’s existence. One only has to look at the incredible number of plant and animals to see that there must be some hand in their creation. The enormous complexity of life we see all around us and we are asked to believe it all just happened by random chance with no direction and no plan.
Even the tiniest single celled organism is an enormously complex factory creating proteins and able to replicate itself. And then we look at humans and see how different we are from all other animals. We think. We have free will. We see beauty in nature. All of this cries out for a god and that god is the God of the Bible.
Have a blessed day,
