I love this time of year: the warm days and cool nights, the leaves changing colors, and the early morning fog rising from the mountains around us. Fall is a beautiful time of year.
During this time of year I am reminded of the fact that God is all around. David said, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Psa. 19:1; see also Psa. 8:1-4). When we open our eyes and look around, we are able to see God in the beauty that surrounds us during this time of year. Friends, God is all around!
The apostle Paul tells us that no one has an excuse when it comes to believing in God because His existence is seen all around. He wrote, “Because that which is known about God is evident within them, for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:19-20).
No one, not even those who have never heard of Jesus or the Bible, has an excuse for not honoring God, because all of creation reveals Him. The next time you go outside, take time to stop and look around. You will see God in the beauty of His creation. Friends, God is all around!
