April 15, 2019 - But Now Ask the Beasts

Updated: Apr 18, 2019

Some of the most beautiful words are found in the book of Job:


“But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you;

And the birds of the air, and they will tell you;

Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you;

And the fish of the sea will explain to you.

Who among all these does not know

That the hand of the LORD has done this,

In whose hand is the life of every living thing,

And the breath of all mankind?


Talk about natural theology, the idea that we can learn something about God through nature. Even in our fallen world, even in a world ravaged by sin, a world that “groans” (Romans 8:22), we still have incredible evidence for the power of our Creator God.


Though, unfortunately, millions have bought into the myth that the beauty and complexity and diversity of life on earth arose by chance, by random mutations and natural selection in a war for survival of the fittest—many others have seen through that myth. Instead, they rejoice, and rightly so, in the obvious: that, as they look at the created world, at the birds of the air, at the fish of the sea, they see that the “hand of the Lord has done this”—the same Lord, whose hands were nailed to a cross in order to save the world that He had created.


All around us, if we open our hearts (for that’s where the real struggle is) the miracle of creation, even a fallen creation, can speak to us in a thousand different ways, teaching us of the Creator, of His goodness, of His power, and of His love. And, then, to think that this same Creator died on the cross.


“And let all the people say, Amen! Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 106: 48).
