It is no secret that we live in a very technologically advanced world. Technology is everywhere.
Perhaps you ordered your breakfast on a touch screen. Maybe you are sitting in a plane but the tickets only exist is some digital cloud. Your coffee was probably not prepared over a fire this morning, andit is safe to say a microwave has been involved in at least one of your meals this week. (and it may have been the one you paid 22 dollars for at a chain restaurant.)
Technology has, without a doubt, made our lives less physically demanding. Many jobs that were once grueling have been made easy by the use of technology. Our world, and our daily lives, are completely different than they would be without it.
Despite it’s major role in our day-to-day, most of us rarely stop to actually think about the innovation that is all around us. It’s just part of life.
It’s kind of the same way that we act about God and His designs. We don’t think about the fact that our lungs are exchanging waste air with new air. We rarely ponder the fact that God has strategically placed planets in position to spare ours from asteroid strikes. We will admire one another’s smartwatches, but do not stop and gaze at the amazing invention that is the human hand. All these things are just part of life.
I want to challenge you today to take a moment and think about God’s creation. Pick something and thing about its design, its purpose, and its intricate details. Maybe even pick up your device and google that thing. Read about how photosynthesis, or earth’s water cycle, or the eye work. Whether you are thinking about a tree, a leaf, or the bird that sits on a branch, I am sure that in just a few moments you will find yourself amazed at how awesome our God is.
Now remember, it is that very same God who is going with you every step of the way.
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. -Psalm 19:1
