For the invisible things of him are made intelligible and clearly discernible in and throughout the things that are made…..an excerpt from Romans 1:20. That is the thought that infiltrated my mind this morning as I was sitting and thinking about a direction of my life.
I had a quick vision of me in a classroom that I was the teacher in, talking to a student that I was helping with a life circumstance. In the discussion I was helping him to understand that it is not God making or causing bad things to happen in life. Some things are like phisics; laws that are set in motion being played out.
I am of the persuasion that God is supernaturally natural. Though he is spirit and works in the realm of the supernatural, there are many things he set in the natural realm, that are just a part of what takes place when boundaries are violated. I think we look so much for his workings in our lives to be so other worldly that we miss his simplicity. He has let us know that his qualities can be clearly seen throughout his creation even our own human bodies.
think of George Washington Carver in all that he did with the peanut. He came up with a myriad of of things that could be used from that one little nut. And, when asked how he thought of them he said, that he would go into what he called “Gods little workshop” and consult the one who created the peanut. Using the knowledge that he had about science, and the wisdom of God, he was able to uncover all of the various attributes that was possible from that one little nut.
The saying “life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get” is another thought that comes to mind in the thinking of life’s little surprises. In reality many of the things we get out of life can be known, we just aren’t looking or paying attention to the right things. Again the invisible things are seen by the things that are visible.
Our actions whether positive or negative will have a reaction or yield a result of some sort. Our thoughts are producing, wether intentional or not; some sort of pattern that our mind and body follows, either in the non conscious or conscious realm.
This dance called life is a wonderful world that has so much to get out of before it’s over. Each one having a distinct purpose and unique dynamic that we only can fulfill; while symbiotically fitting in to the whole of the puzzle. And the way to navigate through it receiving all that we are to do has been made available; if we are only willing to look to the one who created the map in the first place.
NPoint is, there are no random happenings in our lives, it is not like a jumbled box of chocolates, it’s not an accident nor fate setting its course. Our life was formed with a set purpose and design and when we don’t follow the design the laws of consequence are activated. God is not some irrational connivence that we can throw all the ills of life onto as being his fault for not interrupting and making them go away.
His attributes, qualities and awesomeness is clearly seen and understood through his creation, and if we slow down enough and look we will see that he has set us up pretty well; even provided a way of escaping what we have messed up and torn down. But of course that’s too simple for us to see, you see were too busy complicating the message berating and blaming it for not fitting into our form of acceptance. Life is like a box of chocolates, you get to choose.
