Accident or Design? (Psalm 19:1)


The Bible opens with this magnificent statement: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). How simple those words are and yet how fathomless!

Dyson Freeman, one of today’s most brilliant scientists, writes that nature’s laws are marked by “the greatest mathematical simplicity and beauty.”

If there is no Designer – no Creator God – how is it that our universe can be a law-abiding system marked by beauty and simplicity? I wonder, why isn’t our universe in chaos?

The only reasonable explanation to me is the God of the Bible. As it says in Romans 1:20, “Since the creation of the world [God’s] invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that [we] are without excuse.”

If it’s only the reality of God’s existence that explains the whole universe, that must also be true of our lives. We are not accidents but creatures designed by a Maker of limitless power and wisdom. Look for Him in what He has designed – you’ll see Him there. – Vernon Grounds

So much about His character

God wanted to impart;

Creation shows His handiwork –

His Son reveals His heart – Hess

The design of creation points to the Master Designer.
