When you look at Nature it greatly testifies of God’s love. Our Heavenly Father is the source of all life, wisdom, beauty and happiness. Look at the wonderful creation He has made. Think of His unfailing provision for, not only of man, but of all living creatures. The sunshine and the rain, that gladden and refresh the earth, the hills and seas and plains, all speak to us of the Creator’s love. It is God who infinitively supplies every need. In the inspiring words of the psalmist–
“The eyes of all wait upon You;
And You give them their food in due season.
You open Your hand,
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.”
– Psalm 145:15, 16.
God made man perfectly holy and happy; and the fair earth, as it came from the Creator’s hand, bore no blight of decay or shadow of cursing. It was the transgression of God’s divine law–the law of love—that has brought woe and death. Yet even amid the suffering that results from man’s transgression, God’s love is still revealed. God’s desire is to uplift man from the ruin and degradation that his sin has wrought. Man’s ruin of this world is not all sorrow and misery. In nature itself are messages of hope and comfort. There are flowers upon the thistles, and roses among the thorns. “God is love” is written upon every opening bud, upon every blade of springing grass. The lovely birds making the air lively with their happy songs, the perfuming air of fragrant flowers, the lofty trees of the forest with their rich foliage of living green — all testify to the tender, fatherly care of our God and to His desire to make His children happy.
