I am in my kitchen and saw light refractions in the family room this morning. My thoughts immediately focused on the wonderment of God. Just think if you are given the challenge to build a community, universe, house, or garden you begin with your vision, jot down what you want to include in the project, draw a rough draft, review it and then begin to draw the specs.
Most people will overlook some aspect of designing, maybe minute, maybe something major. Hopefully, the oversight or error will not be calamitous, like the Millennium Towers, a multi-million residential complex in San Francisco, California.
We are just humans, and then there is God, the maker of the universe. He created the universe in six days. Everything that ever existed was created on a timetable and exact in its measurements. Nothing was left to folly.
Thus, looking at the refractions on the ceiling and walls caused me to pause and thank God for His creation. Light refraction is science in real time and part of His work. We hear scientists say that science is science and God is God, and science, not God explains the universe and the development thereof. The fact is, science is not independent of God; science exists because of God.
It was a difficult path I took to move from science and Darwinism to knowing that God is the creator of the universe and all that exists in it, those things we know about and those things yet to be discovered. It was equally difficult to accept that God is all-knowing, omniscient. He is all-powerful, omnipotent. He is everywhere, omnipresent; God knows all that was, is, and will occur in our existence. But, once you are saved and your eyes are opened, you know, that you know, that you know. What do you know? You know the truth. There is nothing, and no one mightier than God, our Lord, and Savior.
This is the day of the mysteries of God. The day of His revelations. God knows our challenges and the consequences of our designs before they happen. He sees our flaws and the wonderment that they entail. He sees our paths and promises never to forsake us or leave us to our own accord. He provides our GPS through the Holy Spirit. He gives us sight to view the refractions of light and darkness in our lives, and a lens to explore the possibilities of our discoveries and development of our own making. He gave us the authority to be ‘designers’ to plan the world around us. I’m certain he hoped that through free-will we would choose to protect the planet, universe, our lives and the lives of humanity, but He knows He gave Satan the earth, hence the home of destruction and chaos, with moments of calm. To this extent, it seems we have failed to advance the Kingdom, but as with everything, He accounted for our failure to universally recognize Him as Lord and Savior and ended His work defined in the Book of Revelation.
All of my thoughts came pouring out because I looked up and saw refraction of light dancing on my ceiling. God is beyond amazing; there are no words to define His ability to orchestrate our being. There is a song; God is an Awesome God. The title is an appropriate description and one within our context of incomprehensible.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT
Refraction of light is of God’s making. God’s light passes through an interface of one medium and another. His light transcends the medium of carnality (Satan’s earth) and resides in us through His Word.
