“For his eyes are on the ways of a man,
and he sees all his steps.
There is no gloom or deep darkness
where evildoers may hide themselves.
For God has no need to consider a man further,
that he should go before God in judgment.
Job 34:21-23 ESV
God is the Creator of all, the Grand Designer and Architect. He knows all, sees all, and is perfect in all His attributes. Perfect love and perfect holiness. Perfect justice and perfect mercy.
How is it that WE think we know so much?
I read the following story this morning in “Our Daily Bread” (December 14, 2012):
Willard S. Boyle, Nobel Prize winner in physics, was the co-inventor of the “electronic eye” behind the digital camera and the Hubble telescope. He was in the market for a new digital camera and visited a store in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The salesman tried to explain the complexity of the camera to Boyle, but stopped because he felt is was too compicated for him to understand. Boyle then bluntly said to the salesman: “No need to explain. I invented it.”
Let’s remember that God invented the universe. He invented life. He invented us. And we can trust Him with our lives.
