Seeing God Through Nature
Hosea 6:3 gives us something we should pursue every day of our lives,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth.
What a great pursuit! When you pursue the knowledge of God, He will come to you. He will refresh you like the rain, like the early and the latter rain.
These rains would cause the crops to ripen and bear fruit. Scripture is seeking to tell us that when you seek the knowledge of God, a personal knowledge of God, it will cause your life to become abundantly fruitful. It will cause your life to prosper. It will bring refreshment into your life because God will come to you.
The question is: How do you pursue the knowledge of God?
One way is through nature. Psalm 19:1 says, The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. Creation screams, "There must be a Creator! I'm too perfect, I'm too intricate, I'm too glorious to have just happened. There must be a Master Sculptor. There must be a Master Painter. There must be a Creator behind it all."
The stars in the heavens and the moon literally declare God's glory. When you look at the sunset over the Pacific ocean, or look at the mountains, or you look at the grass in your backyard, they scream that there is a Creator.
Take some time to pursue the knowledge of God this week by just observing nature. When you do, you will come to a deeper knowledge of God as you see and understand the beauty and majesty of Him in a fresh, new way.
God never lacks any resource, and He knows how to give good gifts. Yet many Christians settle for far less than what is available, choosing to find happiness in the mundane and ordinary when God wants to do so much more! Bayless Conley’s message, The God of Much More, shows you how you can experience more of God’s limitless resources, favor, and peace. The God of Much More is our gift to say thanks for your financial contribution. We pray this sermon shows you how you can experience God’s “much more” starting today!
