God is speaking, ( Romans 1 v 16 - 20 )
It was reported on the news recently that light pollution is increasing ,that means when
we look up into the sky at night we cannot see very many ,if any stars. Now of course this
has consequences ,we blot out one aspect of seeing the glory of God,not by means entirely.
The Westminster confession of faith begins by saying that ''the lights of nature, and
works of creation and providence do so far manifest the goodness,wisdom and power of
God as to leave men inexcusable''. The apostle Paul in Romans 1 v 20, writes how creation
has a wonderful message for us ,there is a God who has made all things.Of course believing
in a creator is important,but to get to know that God ,then there must be salvation, that does
not come through through looking at creation,no it comes through Christ.
Oh Lord my God when I in awesome wonder
consider all the works Thy hands hath done,
I see the stars , I hear the mighty thunder,
the power throughout the universe displayed.
When through the woods and forest glades I wander
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.
And when I think that God His Son not sparing,
sent Him to die - I scarce can take it in,
that on the cross my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart,
Then shall I bow in humble adoration,
and there proclaim ,my God, how great Thou art.
Then sings my soul,my Saviour God, to Thee,
how great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee,
how great Thou art,how great Thou art.
