The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
The heavens are sounding the glory of God; the arch of the sky makes clear the work of his hands.
The evidence that God exists is clearly visible all around us.
Even the heavens and firmament are aware and declare His glory every day.
No wonder that His Word says that the fool who says there is no God
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt,
they have committed abominable deeds;
There is no one who does good.
The foolish man has said in his heart, God will not do anything (or does not exist) . They are unclean, they have done evil works; there is not one who does good.
Since they they have a corrupted mind, they deny the existence of God.
They really believe this, and by doing so they silence their conscience.
Dear friend, if you belong tho those who are denying the existence of God, than I advice you to go outside, and open your eyes.
See what nature shows you, look at the heavens and the firmament, and draw inspiration from God. Nothing came into being by itself; it was created.
All the languages of the world acknowledge God one way or another.
My friend, you can do even better than the heavens and the firmament are doing, because you were created in the image of God.
²⁶Then God said,
“Let Us make man in Our image,
according to Our likeness;
and let them rule over the fish of the sea
and over the birds of the sky
and over the cattle and over all the earth,
and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
²⁷God created man in His own image,
in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, like us: and let him have rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every living thing which goes flat on the earth. And God made man in his image, in the image of God he made him: male and female he made them.”
Look at yourself in the mirror and appreciate the handiwork of God in you; then praise Him for His goodness in your life, and He will reveal more of Himself to you.
¹⁹because that which is known about God
is evident within them;
for God made it evident to them.
²⁰For since the creation of the world
His invisible attributes,
His eternal power
and divine nature,
have been clearly seen,
through what has been made,
so that they are without excuse.
²¹For even though they knew God,
they did not honor Him as God
or give thanks,
but they became futile
in their speculations,
and their foolish heart was darkened.
²²Professing to be wise,
they became fools,
Because the knowledge of God may be seen in them, God having made it clear to them. For from the first making of the world, those things of God which the eye is unable to see, that is, his eternal power and existence, are fully made clear, he having given the knowledge of them through the things which he has made, so that men have no reason for wrongdoing: Because, having the knowledge of God, they did not give glory to God as God, and did not give praise, but their minds were full of foolish things, and their hearts, being without sense, were made dark. Seeming to be wise, they were in fact foolish.
