God Is Seen Through His Creations







Can we see God?

By Abraham Israel








A small boy once approached his slightly older sister with a question about God. "Susan, can anybody ever really see God?" he asked. Busy with other things, Susan curtly replied: "No, of course not silly. God is so far up in heaven that nobody can see Him."

Time passed, but his question still lingered so he approached his mother: "Mum, can anybody ever really see God?"

"No, not really," she gently said. "God is a spirit and He dwells in our hearts, but we can never really see Him." Somewhat satisfied but still wondering, the youngster went on his way.

Not long afterwards, his saintly old grandfather took the little boy on a fishing trip. They were having a great time together--it had been an ideal day.

The sun was beginning to set with unusual splendor as the day ended. The old man stopped fishing and turned his full attention to the exquisite beauty unfolding before him. On seeing the face of his grandfather reflecting such deep peace and contentment as he gazed into the magnificent ever-changing sunset, the little boy thought for a moment and finally spoke hesitatingly,

"Grandad, I--I-- wasn't going to ask anybody else, but I wonder if you can tell me the answer to something I've been wondering about a long time--can anybody--can anybody ever really see God?"

The old man did not even turn his head. A long moment slipped by before he finally answered.

"Grandson," he quietly said. "God speaks to us first through His creations and then through His Son Jesus, so that those who draw close to Him will see Him oneday face to face just as He is. God does play hide and seek until you really seek Him with your whole heart."

The small boy nodded his head in agreement and said, "Grandpa, then we need to come again often because it is getting so close that I can't see anything else....."

The Bible says agrees with this truth and says,
"The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world." (Psalm 19:1-4).

The Bible claims that all humans understand that God created all creations through His power, so it says,
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead...." (Romans 1:20).

God can be seen in a shadow through His creations.

"...Ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing... " (Job 12:7-10)
.

When science speaks about the intricate nature of each creations in this planet earth, God speaks loudly through it that none can design such things accurately except His wisdom though which He has done it.

Finally God wants each of us to walk not by our sight but by faith, so that each of us may grope for Him and finally find Him in our hearts now and in person when we die and go on to be with Him forever
(2 Cor 5:7; Acts 17:27; 1 John 3:2).


"Even God has a child-like heart in Him to play and enjoy hide and seek with His human creations." — Abraham Israel
