George Washington Carver said, “I love to think of nature as unlimited broadcasting stations, through which God speaks to us every day, every hour and every moment of our lives, if we will only tune in and remain so.”
There is an element of truth to what Carver said. The Bible says, “For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made…” (Romans 1:19-20). Nature–God’s creation–is one way God speaks to us. Yet the topic about which God speaks to us through his creation is singular: his existence. When one observes the beauty and complexities of this universe, it is clear that there is a Creator.
Yet nature will not tell us anything about our Creator’s will for us. For that, we need the Scriptures, the holy Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
