I woke up this morning and gazed out my window looking at the atmosphere; it is covered with a tint of grey. A contrast from the bright and sunny mornings we have come to expect for a normal day in what we call the Sunshine State. However, I look at the shaking of the trees and twigs as it swayed by a slightly flowing breeze; it reminds me there is life, nature and the existence of a creator. It is a moment to ponder and a time to reflect on the beauty of nature and all it holds. The wonder of creation and the existence of a God who creates a world out of nothing bringing it into focus as time evolves and slowly passes away. All of it’s intricate details; things that still hard for the human mind to comprehend, never a dull moment if you stop to meditate and reflect on your every blessings . Truly His ways are past finding out His awesomeness is beyond explanation. There is nothing to be compared to the wonder of creation!
The Psalmist points out “The heaven declares the glory of God and the firmament shows His handy work.” Who could have caused the earth to hung in space, give men the knowledge to discover the great unknown and venture into space where they can discover the great cosmos? There are many doubters to his handy work but that does not stop him from preforming his duty of keeping the world in order despite the unthinkable deeds of men. It is said “ Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing.” Even when they took council against him they will always stumble and fall. He who sits in the heaven laugh. He looks at their ignorance and laugh!
Consider the universe and all of it’s beauty, think of the air we breathe, the water we drink and all the provisions that is afforded us. We have no need to worry about the future but we do. However it is time to stop and consider the wonderful world we have been given, a place to procreate, a place of wonder and a place of hope. Even when it seems that things aren’t working for you, he is always doing something working on your behalf.
I can’t help but take a moment to reflect on the words of a song I love dearly. “I see trees of green, and red roses too. I see them bloom for me and you. And I think to myself what a wonderful world. I see skies of blue and clouds of white the bright blessed day, the dark sacred night and I think to myself what a wonderful world. The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky are also on the faces of people going by. I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do. They are really saying I love you. I hear babies crying, I watch them grow. They will learn much more than I’ll ever know. And I think to myself what a wonderful world.” Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.
Beyond the wonders of human understanding and the mysterious science of human experiences the world stands as a fortress in its place of existence. It was only a word that spoke it into existence and called all of it’s galaxies to combine into one true moment of creation. A wonderful world where no man needs to lack in love and self fulfillment, a place of rest until human tried their hand at perfection only to mess things up trying to be in control.
Once again a day is coming when all of God’s creation will become perfected, when He calls his children home and a cleansing begins. The wrongs will be made right, darkness will be no more and peace will govern this universe. The Lion will lay down with the lamb and we will be forever in the presence of the Son. That will truly a wonderful world!
