As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything. —Ecclesiastes 11:5

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. —Psalm 9:1

            We do not understand so much about God, nor His works.  Consider this—

“Buckminster Fuller created the “Knowledge Doubling Curve”; he noticed that until 1900 human knowledge doubled approximately every century. By the end of World War II knowledge was doubling every 25 years. Today things are not as simple as different types of knowledge have different rates of growth. For example, nanotechnology knowledge is doubling every two years and clinical knowledge every 18 months. But on average human knowledge is doubling every 13 months.  According to IBM, the build out of  the “internet of things” will lead to the doubling of knowledge every 12 hours.”

            Wow… if that is true, it is astounding!  Yet, even with the increase in knowledge, there is a vast body of understanding about God that we have even yet to scratch the surface on.  He is so far above us.  Look how small we are in the universe and how little of it we have been to.  It is an illustration of how much we know of God— very little!  Oh, how grateful we are for His Word so we are not left completely without knowledge of Him.  He has given us all we need to know Him— “Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book.  But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:30-31).  Yes, God has given us all we need in His Word to believe in Him and have life through Him.

            We cannot understand fully the simplest things about God, such as “the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child.”  But we can recount those wonderful deeds of His and be whole-heartedly thankful.  Rejoice in His Works whether it is all the stellar bodies He has placed in space, or a beautiful flower, or the greatest of trees, or the small bees, or the fishes of the sea… How awesome are His works!  I am grateful to understand that it is He that has done all these things.  I am glad that I am not blinded into thinking this all happened by random chance.  What nonsense!

            But brother and sister, fellow follower of Jesus, there are those who do not accept or acknowledge it is God who created everything.  They “suppress the truth by their wickedness” (Romans 1:18) and “deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water” (II Peter 3:5).  But… “God has made it plain to them. 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” (Romans 1:19-20).  We need to encourage people to acknowledge Him and to call on His Name to be saved (Romans 10:13), remembering that faith comes by hearing or reading His Word (Romans 10:17; John 20:31).  Let us bring the Good News to them! Yes, Dear Father and may this be so today by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Dear Son Jesus.
