Bible commentator Matthew Henry notes that in creation we observe:-
1. Great variety, several sorts of beings vastly differing in their nature and constitution from each other. Lord, how manifold are thy works, and all good!
2. Great beauty. The azure sky and verdant earth are charming to the eye of the curious spectator, much more the ornaments of both. How transcendent then must the beauty of the Creator be!
3. Great exactness and accuracy. To those that, with the help of microscopes, narrowly look into the works of nature, they appear far more fine than any of the works of art.
4. Great power. It is not a lump of dead and inactive matter, but there is virtue, more or less, in every creature: the earth itself has a magnetic power.
5. Great order, a mutual dependence of beings, an exact harmony of motions, and an admirable chain and connection of causes.
6. Great mystery. There are phenomena in nature which cannot be solved, secrets which cannot be fathomed nor accounted for. But from what we see of heaven and earth we may easily enough infer the eternal power and Godhead of the great Creator, and may furnish ourselves with abundant matter for his praises. And let our make and place, as men, remind us of our duty as Christians, which is always to keep heaven in our eye and the earth under our feet.
We should learn from hence:-
1. That atheism is folly, and atheists are the greatest fools in nature; for they see there is a world that could not make itself, and yet they will not own there is a God that made it. Doubtless, they are without excuse, but the god of this world has blinded their minds.
2. That God is sovereign Lord of all by an incontestable right. If he is the Creator, no doubt he is the owner and possessor of heaven and earth.
3. That with God all things are possible, and therefore happy are the people that have him for their God, and whose help and hope stand in his name, Ps 121:2 124:8.
4. That the God we serve is worthy of, and yet is exalted far above, all blessing and praise, Ne 9:5,6. If he made the world, he needs not our services, nor can be benefited by them, (Acts 17:24,25) and yet he justly requires them, and deserves our praise, Rev 4:11. If all is of him, all must be to him.
