In Wonder

WOW! What an amazing video from the Newsboys to go along with their song called In Wonder. You will see some spectacular evidential witnesses to the wonder of God’s creation. God created His world in such a way that we would do just that – stand in wonder and awe based on the overwhelming evidence. We cannot afford to go through the day neglecting to focus on the marvelous work of God’s creation. His creation speaks to us, “The heavens are telling of the glory of God” (Psalm 19:1). The sun, moon, stars and clouds tell us that what we see around us is a visual display of the glory of God.

The world around us also makes us accountable to God as our creator because the world around us is the obvious ‘link’ of evidence that shows God exists and created all things. It didn’t and couldn’t just happen. Forget about the missing link – we have the present link right in front of us every day as we look around. That doesn’t bid well for the evolutionist and atheist. ALLLLL that evidence right in front of their noses and yet they avoid the truth like the coronavirus – instead of masks they wear intellectual blinders. You know the saying: An atheist cannot find God for the same reason a thief cannot find a policeman”.

It is critical for our faith that we use the creation to point us to God and move us to serve Him as OUR creator. You see, God did not only create the lakes, trees, animal life, mountains, sun, moon, stars, etc. – God also created us. And since He created us we belong to Him. Wondrously, His desire is not to rule over us like some tyrant; rather, God is a God of love who wants us not as slaves but He wants us to be His children that He dearly loves and deeply cares for.

You will love the scene in this video as it flies high along the mountain peaks to the highest point – and at that highest point there is a cross. I don’t know who put it there but it’s in the perfect spot because of all God created, His finest work is Jesus on the cross to redeem us.

Read Psalm 19:1; 33:1-22; Romans 1:20 and enjoy the video of In Wonder by the Newsboys.

Psalm 19:1

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Psalm 33

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
    it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
    make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song;
    play skillfully, and shout for joy.

For the word of the Lord is right and true;
    he is faithful in all he does.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
    the earth is full of his unfailing love.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
    their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea into jars;
    he puts the deep into storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the Lord;
    let all the people of the world revere him.
For he spoke, and it came to be;
    he commanded, and it stood firm.

The Lord foils the plans of the nations;
    he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
    the purposes of his heart through all generations.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people he chose for his inheritance.
From heaven the Lord looks down
    and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches
    all who live on earth—
he who forms the hearts of all,
    who considers everything they do.

No king is saved by the size of his army;
    no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
    despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
    on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
to deliver them from death
    and keep them alive in famine.

We wait in hope for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
    for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
    even as we put our hope in you.

Romans 1:20

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.
