The Work of God

He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also put eternity in their hearts, but man cannot discover the work God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 HCSB

I have stood at the edge of the Grand Canyon and marveled in the blues, reds, and yellows of the canyon walls. Swimming in the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean in Hawaii I felt I could actually reach out and touch the colorful fish swimming around me. I have stood at the top of a ski run and enjoyed the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains covered with sparkling snow. The beautiful red and yellow fall leaves in Gatlinburg, Tennessee will forever be etched in my memory. I stand amazed at how awesome God is. It is hard for me to understand how anyone can see such beauty and majesty and say there is no God.

Solomon said that man cannot discover or understand the work of God. It is beyond our imagination and capabilities to comprehend the ways of God. Paul wrote about this when he said “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments and untraceable His ways!” (Romans 11:33)

Challenge: Do not attempt to understand the work of God. Accept His ways and trust in His wisdom and guidance. Go take a walk and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. Praise God for who He is and for all the wonderful things He has done and for the majesty of His creation. Listen the song “How Great Thou Art” on YouTube at
