The Speech of the Day
We have already touched on the specific wonders of the sun and the moon (see "The Sun and Moon"). These great lights were obviously designed to "rule" the daytime and the nighttime (Genesis 1:16), and their role in "telling" us about God is fairly easy to see if we are not blinded by an insistence on the unprovable position that "There is no God" (Psalm 14:1).
What may often be overlooked by the "day unto day" routine (Psalm 19:1-2) of our existence is that the very dependability of each day's processes are a wonderful testimony to the design, purposes, and faithfulness of the Creator. The whole core of evolutionary naturalism, however, is randomness, an unknowable, undependable chaos and disorder. The universe, on the other hand, is very stable!
• The sun rises in the east and sets in the west—always.
• The earth turns on its axis and cycles through its “day” at the same speed every time—always.
• The dependable clockwork precision of the tides regulates much of our life—always.
• The seasons come and go, the planting and harvesting follow each other dependably, life is conceived and born with regularity, even “natural selection” preserves and conserves the vast species of earth—always.
This wordless "language" is easily read by all humanity, and openly "declares" that God is awesomely omnipotent and omniscient, and at the same time lovingly compassionate and faithful. All living creatures depend on it.
