I wonder why some people think if they can figure out how something works it no longer can be attributed to God? Does understanding God’s system change the fact that He created it?
Man used to believe that the earth was flat but now we have proof that it is round, neither of these beliefs change the fact that God created this beautiful system of planets. Just because our understanding of reality changes that does not change reality.
Some people seem to be on a trek to figure the mystery of creation out, so they can disprove God instead of understanding the beauty and magnificence of what He set in place. As knowledge is acquired about our world and its beginnings the systems that seem instinctive and automatic begin to unfold. When you dig and begin to understand the systems that are at work you see the work of a magnificent, intelligent designer with powers beyond our comprehension. The pursuit of understanding these wonders takes more than a lifetime.
“The mind of the prudent acquires knowledge.” A prudent person is one who shows care and thought for the future. We must be wise with how we handle the knowledge that we acquire in our lives. The acquisition of knowledge is a personal endeavor. It is an exercise of one’s brain and spirit. But having some knowledge without any wisdom can lead to foolishness. However the true pursuit of knowledge can lead to the Creator of all things. Wouldn’t you love to meet the One who put all this together? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to understand why things are the way they are and how they started?
Proverbs 1:7 (NASB)
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Perhaps the most important thing to do is to keep God in mind in our search for knowledge. Even some of those who have tried to prove there is no God have been persuaded that He is the creator!
My challenge for this week is to look at what is being thrown around as important knowledge and put it into a Godly perspective. Enjoy your week and I will be back next week with more.
