Romans 1:20 (NIV)
20 For since the creation of the world God�s invisible qualities�his eternal power and divine nature�have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
The apostle explains that since the beginning of the world, God�s eternal power and divine nature are evident. For all around us is evidence of God�s existence and there is no excuse to deny God exists.
For a period of time there was a booming market for real estate development in Atlanta. Then economic changes took place that halted that development. Neighborhoods that had started develop stopped because the economy just could not support new homes. Left behind is what I have heard referred to as PVC neighborhoods. Roads were cut, utilities were being put in place, but homes never got built. All that remains is overgrown weeds and tall PVC pipes standing up from the ground where water connections would be placed.
It is very evident someone started work and just stopped. In some cases there are bags of cement and piles of boards that have weathered and become ruined. You see without someone to start the building process those materials didn�t just get up and complete a home. They say and they are still there.
I�m sure you have heard debates over whether there was creationism or evolution that took place to make this world. I�m not going to debate those facts. I believe that whatever happened, God put everything in place. God was the architect, the engineer, and the builder of the world. God made known His presence through the beauty of things seen and how marvelous and magnificent we are made.
Man can explain some things, but there is a lot he cannot explain. I�m going to leave those points for God to explain to me one day when I am with Him. For I know the Lord Jesus Christ His Son is our savior, our redeemer and the one who gives us eternal life.
You see the one who planned the world also planned for our redemption. God had the perfect plan and He put that plan in place at the perfect time. Thank God for His creation and give Him praise for all He has done.
