How anyone can look at a newborn baby or even a blooming flower for that matter – and not see the hand of God in that is a mystery to me. I see a new life and it’s as if I am looking all the way back to the beginning of time. No matter if it is a human or a plant – that particular life which I am just witnessing owes its existence to the very first burst of life that God created. It cannot be any other way. Nothing dead or inanimate can lead to life. It is impossible and nothing has ever been demonstrated, discovered or developed to prove otherwise.
The flowers, trees, ducklings, fawns and newborn babies all – just shout, “God!” And Paul’s words echo in my mind, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.…” (Romans 1:19-20)
