Mother Nature

The weather guy on the news talks about her all the time. The sports commentator today said a game would be played “if Mother Nature cooperates.” Mother Nature is responsible for many conditions, adaptations, cell divisions, galaxies in space, etc., etc. I get tired of hearing about her! Mother Nature indeed!

There ain’t no “mother” in nature!

God is the Creator and Sustainer of everything we call “nature.” Read Genesis 1 and 2. Many, many additional Scriptures talk about God’s creating the world. (Read Psalm 147, 148; and John 1:2-3 for starters.) Hebrews 1:3 tells us how God sustains the world: upholding all things by the word of his power. (By the way, God created the world by speaking it into being.) The books of Job, Psalms, and Isaiah talk about how God controls natural occurrences like wind, rain, earthquakes, snow, lightning, and evaporation. God rules over the animals and plants, and the Bible even speaks of them praising Him. The stars and the planets and all the heavenly bodies display the glory of God.

God is the Father of nature. He is the One Who controls it. He is the One Who sustains it.

Scientists spent $6.4 billion to construct the Hadron Collider in order to crash sub-atomic particles together and find the elusive “God particle” (or Higgs boson). This would help us understand what supposedly happened millions and millions of years ago at the moment of the theoretical Big Bang. Just this week, scientists think they have found where the Higgs boson should appear. It is yet to be confirmed, but if it is what they think, it will be a key to what makes all matter stay together.

Though I’m completely in favor of observation and true science, I think it isn’t so difficult to open one’s Bible and read Genesis 1 and 2 and read what really happened at the beginning of the world: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). Again, Hebrews 1:3 says it all sticks together through His power. (Surely, scientists will find that the Higgs boson is a force!) Reading what Someone Who was actually there says about what actually happened seems like reliable science to me—and it’s a lot less expensive!

For me, give me the Father of nature, my great God! Let’s give Him full credit.
