Psalm 8:3-5

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.

Psalm 8:3–5, ESV

In 2004, noted theologian Rev. Dr. Norman Geisler published a book entitled I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist. In it, he spoke about the difficulties that one should have in saying that they are an atheist and the misnomer that atheism does not require some faith. When confronted with all within Creation, it takes a lot of faith to believe that all things happened by chance. How can we explain everything that has happened? Evolution, when truly studied in depth, begins to fall apart. Though many will argue otherwise, one need only read some of the works of the top evolutionists, and you will find a plethora of theories that would seem even more outlandish than God. As we look at the expanse of the Heavens and see the miraculous interplay of all things, it is fascinating, and quickly we can see the fingerprints of our Lord everywhere. We, also, can be overwhelmed that our Lord put all things of creation into our hands and has charged us to be good stewards. One can argue that we have failed in this work throughout history, but we can also see the gracious nature of God and how quickly nature will repair itself when left to its own devices. I was fascinated when reading the reports during the pandemic lockdown and how places that had shown deep wounds from pollution for many years within weeks things were beginning to show health. We are not called to worship creation, but we know there are ways in which we can learn to prosper and care for the world our Lord has given us. Isn’t it a wonder how God can use us? When we look at all that God has created, let us humbly worship Him and seek to glorify Him within His glorious creation.

Let us pray. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, your dear Son, that you have kept me this night from all harm and danger, and I ask you to protect me this day also from sin and every evil, that in all I do today, I may please you. For into your hands, I commend myself, my body and soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel watch over me, that the wicked foe have no power over me. Amen.
