wonder found in the details…

I live and love in God’s peculiar light.

Yesterday, my friend Colorstorm over on The Lion’s Den
( https://thenakedtruth2.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/well-this-is-deep/ )
offered a post complete with a rather informative video clip regarding the depths
of the ocean.

An amazingly informative little narrative that is not only factually full but is
actually quite humbling.

And in keeping with this humbling mindset,
last week CS offered a clip about the majesty of the earth.
The clip offered an interesting perspective of a flat planet vs the more familiar round.
Yet no matter one’s thoughts on flat or round—the earth is beyond words.
The sheer majesty of the natural planet is so much greater than man’s capacity for
adjectives….

And now CS has offered a clip of equal magnitude when considering the depths of the ocean.
The clip does not focus on pretty pictures but rather indisputable numbers,
facts and comparisons.

It is estimated that only 5% of the ocean floor has been adequately “mapped” by man.
Meaning that there is 95% of the world’s oceans that are a vast unexplored mystery.
And since the oceans of this planet cover 71% of earth’s surface…that is
an awful lot of unknowns….

So as I pondered and mused over the fact that our God,
the Creator of not only the earth, but of all that is within…
that the Creator of all the oceans and seas that cover this earth…
is so awesome,
so amazing,
so beyond man’s mere limited comprehension…
that even the creatures of the darkest depths are provided illumination and
that even the most mundane and cursed of weeds of the land is topped with a glorious crown…

For His attention is not only full of the big, the vast, the deep and the wide,
but it is in the tiniest of details that we actually see His true nature…
that of an endless loving compassion…

No one is like you, Lord;
you are great,
and your name is mighty in power.
Who should not fear you,
King of the nations?
This is your due.
Among all the wise leaders of the nations
and in all their kingdoms,
there is no one like you.

Jeremiah 10:6-7

    I cannot fathom how anything nw can say all of this is the result of an explosion. The commonality of design, the complexity of it all, the sheer beauty had to be created by a master…and it was.

    In the face of all that we don’t know, people insist on refuting the on thing that can be known, and that is the clearly revealed presence of a Creator through His creation.

    Romans 1:20 “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

    God reveals Godself through creation – and how complex creation is! It is humbling to consider.

    Well jewels, you took a few crumbs and made a whole cake.

    I love the idea of no pretty pictures, but facts and comparisons; sometimes its good to let our imagination fill in the blanks, even better when that mind is sanctified eh.

    So the believer can rightfully say that we know so little, but what little we know we are certain. πŸ˜‰

    Truly, our God is an awesome God. Tks for the mention too of course.

    • Thank you for the kind words CS…and especially for the inspiration and reminder to be grateful for and to the Creator all such inspiration!!!

        I’m never amazed J at the utter arrogance of we the people, (not to be confused with confidence in the living God of course) when we pretend to know the 95%, and allege that we are such ‘deep’ thinkers, when we don’t even get the 5% correct.

    Creation is so beautiful both topically of course but underneath where layers of complexity that sound the human mind make it all work. Not difficult to believe in God by just opening our eyes to what’s around us. Love the thistle pic too!

  6. Amen, amen, and amen!!! And I love finding Him at every turn in His Creation!!! : ❀

    That post on the depth of the Ocean was really something. Good analogy of that truth to convey the compassion of God!
