Pursue him!

““Can you direct the movement of the stars— binding the cluster of the Pleiades or loosening the cords of Orion? Can you direct the constellations through the seasons or guide the Bear with her cubs across the heavens? Do you know the laws of the universe? Can you use them to regulate the earth?”
Job 38:31-33 NLT --

We think we know it all. Our arrogance, that of man, is so misguided! We are guessing at what we know. Our knowledge of life, the universe, and it's tangled web is laughable. What do we really know? Can we regulate the earth, the sun, or the planets? What is it that we can create? Can I take nothingness, ignite it, even with a Big Bang, into something even close to life? No, No, No! 

I do not understand the feeling by scientists that we are nearing the end to what can be known. I can't believe that we have come so far as to say we could not be wrong. How many mistakes in theories have we made? Do we still feel the earth is the center of the universe? Is the world flat? Oh yes, we have been wrong before, we could be wrong again! Climate change, evolution, the "Big Bang". They could all be wrong. At least admit we have been wrong before and we could be wrong again! 

I truly love science and the pursuit of knowledge. I agree with what we "think" we know. But there is so much out there that we don't know. Our current knowledge about ourselves is so limited. The knowledge of our own planet, our own bodies is still so slim. Why can't we acknowledge the mystery of life and that God is possible? Is God even possible? If there is even a remote, insignificant chance of the existence of God, our entire life changes. The nay-sayers  won't go down that road.

God is real! He is relevant. He loves us and wants a relationship with us! Anyone who pursues him, explores the existence of my loving God, will find him. Just take a look around you. You will see him. His wondeful creative hand is in all things and I marvel at his creation. Praise God!
