God Seen in Creation

Attributes of God Seen in Creation
from the Book of Psalms

From a Sunday School Message by M. Vetter

 God is clearly seen in Creation – we know this and the Psalmist knew it too.
The UNBELIEVER can LEARN about God from Creation.
For the BELIEVER Creation should REMIND us about God’s characteristics.

Romans 1:19-20 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

David and other psalmists were reminded about God’s character by observing His Creation. When they looked around they were reminded of His character everywhere.
Psalm 36:5-7
36:5a – the heavens = mercy
36:5b – the clouds = faithfulness
36:6a – great mountains = righteousness
36:6b – deep (oceans) = judgments
36:6c-7 – care for man and beast = lovingkindness

The LORD is known by what He has made – One of His titles is “The One Who Made Heaven and Earth.”

121: 1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
124:8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
146:6 (God) made heaven, earth, the sea and all that therein is
