George Washington Carver was a man who lived very close to God’s creation. As a youngster he was very interested in plants and experimented with natural pesticides, fungicides, and soil conditioners, earning the nickname “the plant doctor” for his ability to improve gardens, fields, and orchards. Later as an agricultural scientist and inventor, he developed hundreds of products using peanuts, sweet potatoes, and soybeans.
Carver’s observation and study of nature led him to say, “I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”
One cannot help but to be in awe of the magnificence of God’s creation. From the largest structures like galaxies and solar systems, to the smallest building blocks of the subatomic world, order and design are seen throughout.
This is what motivated David to exclaim, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1), a declaration that proclaims God is powerful, creative, and in control.
You can hear these messages throughout this beautiful world and universe, if we will but open our ears. Are you listening?
