The Fool Says In His Heart, There Is No God.”

The Fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1a)

It is amazing how someone can look around them and say there is no God. I wake in the morning, and it is immediately evident that there is a God. Our bodies are too well designed to be a cosmic accident, or descendants from a single cell. When I get hungry, my body lets me know. If I eat, my body takes the food extracts what is necessary and removes what is not. My body knows when it needs rest.

Even more amazing is when I go outside and think about photosynthesis. I breathe oxygen in then it is turned into a waste product called carbon dioxide which plants take in and turn into oxygen. How can you say that it just evolved that way?

There is no part of life that you can look at and say wow, isn’t that amazing how everything just coincidentally worked out where the different seasons, creatures, and everything else work together.

The Heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. (Psalm 19:1-2 ESV)

For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. (Romans 1:19-23 ESV)

God created the world. It was a well thought out plan, so that even if there was no one to show us God His creation would reveal Him. Indeed only a fool could say there is no God.

Read Genesis 1 today and then reflect on how God created everything to reveal and proclaim His glory.
