Of God and Men

Man designed the space shuttle, and it went to the Moon. I have to say that is a rather impressive feat.

God designed the Ark of Noah, and it traversed the earth while the earth was completely flooded…and it held inside two of each of all the animals of earth. That to me is even more impressive.

Many people are impressed with things that man has done or “created”, and rightly so. What mankind has managed to do is truly impressive. A lot of what has been done is way beyond me…how about you? However that being said true creating can only be done by God. Man makes things out of what is available to him on this earth.

Man figured out how to make many different types of metal, boy aren’t we clever. God made all the material we use to make these metals…and He knew we would make them before we did!

Thomas Edison created the light bulb, what a wonderful invention that gave us a readily useable light source. God created the sun in the sky to give us light, impressive huh?

Man designed and built the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, an engineering masterpiece!

God created the Grand Canyon…what a masterpiece!!

Man created a machine that uses high-pressure water capable of splitting rock if need be for well drilling. Water has also been used to cut steel…thick steel. God created the oceans and set their boundaries in place…umm wow.

What is the point of this you may be thinking….so glad you asked! Man has done some rather impressive things at least I think so! Has mankind (or womankind) created anything that totally impresses you?

Who created man I ask you? God did obviously. The point is; do not let yourself be overly impressed with what a man has done. Instead be impressed with what the Lord has done. Look all around you; the evidence of the Glory of the Lord is clearly visible to all. Who created the heavens? God did. Who created the earth and everything on and in it? God did.

Give God Almighty His due Glory and praise; worship Him always, each day. Do not worship at the altar of man; man did not make God, God made man.

    Anything good we have accomplished as mankind is the direct result of God’s gracious intervention in our world and our personal lives. Great posting!

    God’s mercy and grace in forgiveness lasts forever for it is based on the finished work of Jesus and upon His Word which changes not. Compare His forgiveness with man’s which is so dependent on personal feelings, fears and fancy. We can give glory and praise to Him for His everlasting love.

  3. Who gave man the knowledge and ability to do all those amazing things? God did. Without God we would have nothing and be nothing.

  4. Mighty indeed! Only God could create everything from nothing. He alone is worthy of our praise.

    All the feats you mention are amazing, but I think the greatest of all His creations was when He made a new creation from my old life. You see, when God commanded light to appear, or the oceans to stay in place, they had no option but to obey. When Jesus commanded the wind and the storm to be still, they had no option but to obey. They were created by Him. However, when God called me, He had to break down my stubborn will. I had the ability to refuse. What a miracle it took to make the “new” me! What an enormous change!

    What an amazing God!
