God's Voice is Everywhere in Everything
This week we asked the question: Why do I never hear from God?
If you missed the sermon, you can watch it back here.
No matter what you believe about the beginning of time, we all might be able to agree that God is the source of everything. I happen to think He's brilliant enough to use science to accomplish the unfathomable blueprint of the universe, which makes the scientific discoveries of evolution actually point to the genius of God rather than debunk Him. In fact, every day the universe is ever-expanding, which means that creation is still pursing the truth of what God spoke into existence. And if all of creation is moving in the direction of what God spoke, maybe we should too. Since God spoke everything into existence, it makes sense that David said, "The heavens declare the glory of God," in the Psalms, and Jesus said, "If these people stop praising me, even the rocks will cry out." Everything exists by and is sustained by the voice of God, which means He is speaking through everything, and we can hear Him if we take the time to intentionally listen. Every new discovery in space, every new finding in the smallest of details of the tiniest creature, and every new uncovering in the universe reveals another colorful shade of the character of God. Every animal and every plant reveal a facet of God's nature, and every human reflects a unique angle of God's very image. What are you learning about who God is today through the universe around you and through the people around you?
For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all,
who is over all, in all, and living through all.
Give me eyes to see a new colorful shade of your character through the universe around me today, God.
