The Evidence Is In the Details…

There’s an old saying, “The devil is in the details.” That may be true in the arcane world of business and contracts, but when it comes to the rest of the world and especially God’s creation, the evidence is in the details. Romans 1:20 says “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

It’s true, we can see it all around you. Go to virtually anything that God has created and you will see, even with the naked eye, a multitude of intricate details. Going to the microscopic level and you will see it even clearer. Our world is far too complex to have occurred accidentally. Look at our world closely enough and you will see the evidence of God.

Here’s a great idea for a creative project today. Go out, into nature and find something natural that interests you, then take it back to your creative space, and look at it closely, maybe even magnify it. Then find an interesting detail and create an image of that detail. I’ve done this several times and each time I do it, it seems to draw me a little closer to our amazing, creative God.
