The Creator's love seen in the beauty of creation...

God’s splendor is a tale that is told;
his testament is written in the stars.
Space itself speaks his story every day
through the marvels of the heavens.
His truth is on tour in the starry vault of the sky,
showing his skill in creation’s craftsmanship.
Each day gushes out its message to the next,
night with night whispering its knowledge to all.
Without a sound, without a word, without a voice being heard,
Yet all the world can see its story.
Everywhere its gospel is clearly read so all may know.
Psalm 19:1-4 The Passion Translation

I normally share a scripture and then some of my own thoughts in this space each week. This week I wanted to share some quotes relating to the scriptures found in Romans 1:20 and Psalm 19:1-4, both shared above. I have two books by author Dana Candler that I would highly recommend. Deep Unto Deep and Entirety In the quotes below, taken from Dana Candler's book, Entirety, she writes of how God speaks to us through the beauty of His creation if we only have eyes and ears to perceive it.

“The God whose pursuit of me has been from the eternal ages is also the One who searches for me in the present day, reaches for me in the beauties of creation and in the the smallest
events of my everyday circumstances…”

“The Lord’s love is so extravagant, and though the crowning revelation of that extravagance was in the giving of His Son even unto death, He has continued His proclamation in a daily manner through the messengers of the created order. The natural order serves as a window into the supernatural, bringing my heart closer to the Creator if it but hears the message and beholds the beauty of the creation and the persistent announcement of the Creator’s love behind it.” 

“Surely God has set the created order into motion as a continual witness, a voice that incessantly goes forth, a beauty that relentlessly exudes the message of His deep love and His extravagant kindness…Oh, to have ears to hear and eyes to perceive the heart of the Beloved behind this beauty!”

  1. Will have to investigate her book. So true that we can see him even in the smallest events, and her quote about searches for me in the present as well as in the past gives peaceful reassurances along with his Word.
