As an artist, perhaps it’s easier for me to believe in a Sovereign God. He has gifted me with the ability to see things in my mind and draw them out onto paper, wood, walls. The world, the universe, even the laws of physics had to have a creator. Someone who drafted them out, saw them as a thought, and brought them to be.
“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist”. – Colossians 1:16-17
People say God doesn’t exist, you can’t prove he does. He’s non tangible in this world. There are many things that are non tangible yet exist. My ability to draw or paint, someone else’s ability to sing or write music. There are many gifts that the only evidence that they exist is in their creations. Michelangelo created the statue David, God created the original David. As Gods children we have received certain talents that reflect our Father through which we learn about his Divine Being. Jesus said, if you see me you have seen the Father, we are also created in God’s image and received his likeness in certain gifts and talents.
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” – Hebrews 11:3
God is the original artist, sculptor, writer, lyricist, musical composer, musician, phycisist, physician, astronomer, geologist, scientist, genealogist, lawyer, governor, King. In fact, whatever you see here on earth is only a reflection of our Fathers attributes. Pretty amazing to think about. Meditate on it for a moment. We are truly made in our Fathers image, inside and out.
“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
Romans 1:19-20 KJV
