Has that question ever crossed your mind? Have you ever been blown away while considering the vastness of the universe? The earth? Humanity??? Many don’t have time to consider these deep concepts because their mind is too busy thinking of other things of much less importance. One of the fundamentally important questions of mankind should be asked by all: Who am I? We learn through 12 years of public schooling that we basically came to be by accident. That through some still unknown scientifically unexplainable event we started and through billions of years of transformation we finally became who we are today. A mere accident! We are given homework, research papers, and tested on this myth for these 12 years to try and convince us its true, but the truth is we were created. By God!

The Psalmist, who was a very deep thinker, considers this:

3 When I consider Your heavens the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained. 4 What is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him? 5 Yet You have made him a little lower than God, and You crown him with glory and majesty. 6 You make him to rule over the works of Your hands. You have put all things under his feet.

Now those are some deep thoughts. When we choose to break through the mundane everyday distractions that absorb our minds, we realize how little sense evolution makes, and we realize there must be Someone behind our existence! God put so much effort into our existence and we come up with some theory that kind of maybe possibly make sense even though there are more flaws in this theory than just believing in God Himself!

Ok, so once we believe we are created, now to just think about the One who created us! Wow! He must be quite the creative type. Consider the very planet we live on, and how it is perfectly situated, not too far from the sun otherwise we couldn’t handle the cold air, but also not too close to the sun otherwise we couldn’t handle the heat! Look at all the lights in the sky the bigger one by day so we can see and the lesser ones by night so we can know times and seasons, etc. Look how perfect the eco system works together with the many different species of plants that all seem to have their own purpose. And the animal kingdom, with all the different kinds and species, living amongst each other in harmony within its own environment.

Then He crowned His creation with humanity, which He made in His own image. We were made with many of God’s characteristics, imagine that! Characteristics such as: the ability to unconditionally love others, the ability to choose what we want to do and where we want to go, purpose, vision, just to name a few! The psalmist says, He has made us to rule over the works of His hands! This is our Creator! This is why He is worthy to be glorified and honored with our very life!

And we honor Him by coming up with a half thought out theory that says we are accidently put on earth through the cause of some unknowable explosion that just happened to come about in a way we can’t really figure out yet but we are working on it! Really people? We sure can do better than this! Believe in Him, and praise Him, and worship Him! Give Him your life! He died for you, so live for Him!


Be blessed
