The Balance of Nature

Psalm 104 My daughter Amber was given a series of videos for Christmas a few years ago called “Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution.”  They are amazing to watch.  The features shown about various animals are fascinating.  The narrator constantly asks the question, “Could this have developed very slowly over many generations?”  And the obvious answer is always, “No.”  The timing and balance in nature is absolutely amazing.  That same point is made by the author of Psalm 104.  He was an astute observer of nature, and he too was amazed at the tender balance nature demonstrates.  His response was one that is instructive to us, “Praise the LORD, O my soul.”  I can say with this psalmist, “O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.”

          I want to offer a special thanks to all who read these words.  If I don’t write again in the next few days, may you have a blessed Christmas.  May your holiday be a great time with family and friends; may you have great joy in the Lord; may it be all about Jesus and all about God’s glory!

  1. I was thinking this afternoon about Earth’s rotation, and I realized that our orbit around the sun isn’t what causes the seasons. It’s Earth’s wobble that does that. When you realize that Earth’s wobble lines up EXACTLY with it’s rotational period, and how the little tilt we have modifies how much direct sunlight we get, varying temperatures no more than 150 degrees (Versus several hundred or thousands as seen on other planets), you then start to see the cosmic scale of God’s exactness. It hurts the mind sometimes.
