When I tour an historic mansion and scrutinize the building's details - the quality, design, and decor - I can draw some conclusions about its builder. Is the foundation strong? Are the walls and floors plumb and square? How well are the most intricate details constructed? Does the design flow from one room to another?
We live on a grand estate called Earth. As we look at the beauty and intricacies of our residence, we marvel at the genius of the design. When we gaze up into the heavens, we are overcome with awe at the vastness of what our Creator has brought into being. In one of the most beautiful passages in the Bible, King David describes how nature testifies to the power of God: "The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world." (Psalm 19:1-4, NIV)
To get just a small idea of God's creative power, let us consider our corner of the universe. We live on one of nine planets that revolve around the sun. As the dominant light of our solar system, our sun gives off far more energy in one second than all mankind has produced since creation. With a diameter of approximately 860,000 miles, the sun could hold one million planets the size of the Earth. Yet our sun is only an average-size star.
How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being. There is no greater power!
Your View of God Really Matters ...
On the next clear, starry night, go outside, gaze upward at God's heavens, and worship Him for marvelous His power and wisdom. Tell Him how much you love Him. Listen for His voice in your heart.

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
God never changes. Yet, when we pray and ask Him to intervene in our lives, He does so---when it is in line with His will. He works through us as we walk and talk with Him.
