God Is

A story on Fox news today (March 18, 2019) relates scientists have found quartzite rocks on a small Island between Madagascar and the eastern coast of Africa. The discovery bumfuzzled them. Why? According to them, they should not have been there.

These people will wonder and wonder, no doubt come up with all kinds of ridiculous explanations concerning the presence of the rocks. The person who believes in God knows immediately how they got there. The answer is Genesis 7:17-20.

And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

The rocks were doubtless displaced by the rushing waters of the flood from fountains of the deep (Gen. 8:2). They came to rest where men would not expect them to be found based upon the surrounding geological features. There is no mystery they are found in an unexpected place.

From the wonders upon the earth all about us to the complexity of our own human bodies the pieces of evidence for God are all about us. For those who are willing to accept the evidence, His being is easy to believe. The Psalmist David said it so elaborately: “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” (Psalm 134:14).

Conversely, He wrote in Psalm 15:1, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” When a man comes across a mystery, which cannot be explained through natural causes, he would do himself a favor to remember, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is also the evidence of some things one does not expect to see, but does!
