Just like the unseen beauty and unseen details of the desert or ocean are to the casual observer, God’s work in our lives and in the details of our world are often unnoticed or unappreciated.
Observing, from an encumbered point of view, across the rolling desert, it is easy to miss the washes, canyons and vegetation that are normally hidden within them. Walking among the trees and cacti, usually hidden below the horizon, one can appreciate their beauty and just how well they thrive in their harsh environment.
Beautiful design that is hidden from plain view (requiring effort to discover) is no less beautiful.
How much beauty has God hidden? Does God delight in, even reward our searching?
Psalm 107:9 – “for he satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things.”
How hidden are God’s principles of design (and life)? Are they hidden – or are they just unseen by us. Who walks in the desert? Who leaves the common path to discover?
