Romans 1:20 says, "For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in andthrough the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification]..."

This week I was walking outside and the word magnificent just kept pouring through my heart to God. Just the beauty and splendor of nature itself was particularly moving to me. Even if I had never heard of God before my natural self would be curious on who could have made such beauty and order all around? Then it dawned on me-- in our days of doubting God--all we have to do is look around us!

Once I started truly digesting all things and creations within my view it was so easy to find God! There is no way any man on earth could create such intricate and delicate living things! Then I started to widen this thought with the creation of my life, my children, my purpose, and much more! My entire being was consumed in the truth that God has made ALL things seen and unseen!

What about you today? Do you have doubt that God is really there? Do you doubt that He truly created all that you see? Is life throwing you some challenges that make your broken heart doubt the goodness of God? My heart understands and that is why we must all look around and see God in the beauty of nature. Open your eyes to things such as trees or the sun with a new revelation that certainly the God above was the creator of all the universe including you!

My challenge this week is to look at your view right now! Literally, take inventory of what your eyes see right now. Then thank God for His magnificence! Take in all that your natural eyes can see. Then, extend your view into the unseen such as relationships, friends, family members, etc. and see the God in ALL of that! When you are doubting and down-- it is so simple-- LOOK around and see God's magnificent handiwork's in nature and in your life! Then you will know and be certain that God is with you, God is for you, and God created ALL of this for you to enjoy today!

In God's abundant love,
