Scientific Reassurance


In response to my Sermon Notes post, a co-worker sent me the video below. It’s about 45 minutes so be patient and you’ll see some awesome things.
Indescribable – Louis Giglio

The video was in response to my first comment about not being able to understand God and the verse in Isaiah 55:8-9: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

If you can never reach His level of understanding then why try? But if someone wasn’t out there trying we wouldn’t have some of the cool scientific and astronomical finds that only confirm the awesomeness of God and his Creation. As I explained today at work, my simple mind struggles to fathom that the universe even has mysteries, much less trying to find out what those mysteries are. The verse shared Sunday just confirmed for me that it’s OK not to need scientific reassurance of what a creative and mind-blowingly intelligent Creator we have. But as the video shows, it’s also OK to be amazed when science confirms what you already know to be true.

  1. Your last two sentences are great — well said, and a great point.

    Actually, the whole post is good, but you summed so much up nicely in that end bit — God’s so much bigger than we can comprehend!
