Realising again the handiwork of God

This New Year I took a holiday in Wales. While I was there admiring Snowdonia and the Breacon Beacons. I have been
confronted by the handiwork of God.
As a stood beneath the rather large looking tor(very large hill) I
thought of the verse
Psalm 19:1
"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork."
The firmament means here the earth. I grew up in a city, concrete
jungles where men have used the intellect God gave them to
create leviathans of the city. Not far from my office at London Bridge
stands the tallest building in Western Europe, The Shard.
Yet all this seemed dwarfed as I looked over God’s creation in Wales, each tree
so intricate, each hill and mountain reaching up out of the earth with
dips and cliffs and valleys. I wondered at the magnificence of God. An
architect is highly lauded for a great bridge or boat, such as the man
once voted the second greatest Britain of all time Isambard Kingdom
Brunel, a 19th century engineering giant. In creation we have so much
more complexity and marvellous beauty.
From this I pondered how true its creation is a general revelation
that there is a God. It evidences a designer as a building has a
designer. The point I came to ponder was, the God who created all this
has something to do with me. Oh, the wonder of the grace of God.
Further, this Almighty God, though I was a rebel to him a sinner;
transgressing his law. He sent his only begotten Son to redeem a
people, to be a propitiation for my sin. What condescension God has
towards us what mercy. If you are not acquainted with the creator of
this world who form all this by the power of his word, isn’t time you
did so? He has revealed to his people a book which declares how those
who are born again know forgiveness of sins and a right relationship
with him, read it!
To the believer reading this I would say, do not forget the
magnificence of the God we adore, who formed the heavens and the
earth. As the hymn writer puts it:
“How great is the God we adore, our faithful unchangeable friend, Our
faithful unchangeable Friend! His love is as great as His power, And
knows neither measure nor end”
I will close this blog with a short poem which flows from what I have
just written.

The stars without number, he placed there with his hand;
By his awesome power, he formed the sky, the land;
What almighty power this is? What design and forethought?
As a stare across natures fine realms, this designer have I sought;
He claims me as he gave me breath, but what have I to him?
Nothing but rebellion, ignorance and sin;
But lo, there is this book, which tells me of his will;
It says there is one who came to seek and save and heal!
Christ is this very one, who redeemed us with his blood;
That we might not be cast away but reconciled to God;
Oh may I praise my maker, when breath is in my lungs;
And never forget that hill, that valley, was formed by his mighty arms;
The one who created that world, has made my salvation secure;
I await the day, when corruption is gone, and I am with him forevermore.
