Examining The Majesty Of God's Creation

Have our eyes ever looked up into the heavens at night and our breath be taken away because of the majesty we see in God’s creation?

How about an eclipse of the moon (see video) or walking outside on a starry night to see Orion or Pleiades — constellations mentioned thousands of years ago in Scripture (Amos 5:8; cf. Job 9:1-10). Then there’s the bursting dawn that radiates with magnificent colors signaling another sunrise. Or how about the sound and light show that accompanies God’s watering the earth with food-producing rain (Job 36:27-33; cf. Acts 14:17).

Have we ever stood by a fence and marveled at the power of a horse as it gallops gallantly through the field, with mane flowing and hoofs pounding? (Job 39:19-25). Or watched a soaring, swooping eagle drop from the sky because his God-designed vision has sighted his prey from his mountain-peak nest? (Job 39:27-30).

After God gave man breath (Genesis 2:7), He then took man’s breath away with the beauty, grandeur, and eloquence of a universe of marvels created by His own hand (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 19:1-6; Romans 1:18-20).

Beloved, let’s look around tonight, examining the magnificence of God’s creation — then as we become breathless, proclaim His majesty (Psalm 68:32-35 ESV).
