God's Sovereignty in Creation
Ever since I was a child God spoke to me through creation. There has never been a day where I have not been awed by it. I suppose though that could be said for the majority of people whether or not they believe in God. Many fight tooth and nail for a house with a view. Why is that? Because they see beauty in creation. Yet God is revealing Himself to them through creation:
As a Christian this makes perfect sense! That feeling I get when in awe of stunning scenery or a crisp, clear night sky, the bright white moon crowning it I now know it to be not with what I see alone but with the fact God is revealing Himself through it. Amazing! I see a glimpse of His glory, His majesty, His greatness!
But sadly through the years, since the theory of evolution many professing Christians try to force this theory (evolution) into their faith thus denying God's sovereignty in creation and administration. To accept evolution is to deny the creation account in Genesis and thus deny the whole of Gods Word.
Here we see God's sovereignty. He said and it was so. Therefore who are we to take the creation account, label it as myth, take a theory and make it fact because it is labelled "science". This requires MORE faith! All through the Bible we see God said and it was so (the plagues in Egypt, commanding weather, the fiery furnace even). Therefore, again, to deny the creative account in Genesis is to deny God's sovereignty elsewhere through the Bible. Deny His sovereignty you deny He is God. Or as Pink put it:
To say that God is sovereign is to say that God is God A.W.Pink.
God rules over all His creation.
We see this everyday. If God were to withdraw His governing hand from creation I dare say everything would be destroyed in moments. Everything would be in chaos! Take the weather, when we complain about it we are really murmuring against God. 'Deny that God is governing matter,deny that He is "upholding all things by the word of His power" (Heb 1:3), and all sense of security is Gone!-A.W.Pink. How true!
In meditation of the sovereignty, majesty and greatness of God I finish with a verse taken from Psalm 104. If you can I recommend turning to the whole Psalm.
