Elihu states here that, 'God is great.' God has included in His creation, the many complexities
and vastness, which compliments His greatness.
Whether observing through a telescope or the sensors
on a satellite, or through a microscope or more sophisticated sub-atomic
measuring devices, the vastness and thoroughness and complexities of this
universe go far beyond mans imagination.
We cannot even discover all that there is, let alone
comprehend it all. Recent theories of
seven (or eleven) dimensions (we are used to the basic four) sends the
imagination off the charts of the incomprehensible.
Only in recent decades (less than one percent of human
history), have mind boggling discoveries overwhelmed our lifestyles. But the
things we have discovered, man did not create, we have just learned the many
principles which have always existed in this world and universe, and we have learned
to innovate useful gadgets which help improve our daily lives, while advancing
our knowledge of this universe.
Man did not create any of the fundamental components
of life. God did that. Since time began for humanity, man has
celebrated and sung songs of praise and awe for what God has done.
Unfortunately, man looks at life through a narrow
view, and judges God based on mans actions.
But it is not man who is the inventor.
It is God. It is not man who
defines truth and the principles of life. It is God.
Throughout history, man has taken Gods name and
manipulated it for mans own conveniences or lusts, or power, or alternate
explanations. But mans motives and
actions though they be evil, do not discount the perfections of Gods true
God presides over this universe and heaven. Heaven being far greater than our universe. Recall our study on the 'vault' of creation,
earlier in Job.
Man can barely preside over the space he stands on.
As close as the fragrance of a flower to the nose, or
as far as the sight of distant galaxies, Gods creative hand is evident to
To those whose intellect can barely grasp the simplest
of concepts, to those who possess great theoretical insight, Gods creative hand
is evident to all.
Whether you believe it or not is irrelevant. Truth does not depend on your attitude.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
