We are continuing today with our study in Romans 1:20. If you have missed any of our previous discussions you can find them on THE ROAD THROUGH ROMANS PAGE.
Romans 1:20 reads…For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
We are beginning to discuss the invisible qualities of God using A.W. Tozer’s list. See last post.
So today we will begin by speaking about wisdom. More specifically what is the wisdom of God and how is it displayed in the creation?
The question then is, how is God’s wisdom displayed or proven through the creation?
The creator of the universe displays superior knowledge, experience, understanding common sense and insight and His use of it in the intricate balance of nature.
Consider the water cycle.
Consider the intricate encoding of DNA.
Consider the brilliance it took to calculate the earth’s perfect tilt toward the sun and its perfect distance from the sun.
Consider the calculations that placed the moon at exactly the right distance and orbit from the Earth to control the ocean’s tides.
Consider the engineering marvel that makes bees fly.
All of these things in creation speak two truths to me:
- They could not have come about by accident
- Whoever purposed the creation of the universe had an intelligence and wisdom far beyond anything we humans know.
The creation shows us that the creator is wise.
