Scientific Calculus

by Heather Tietz

God has made the earth by his power. He has established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding has he stretched out the heavens.

Jeremiah 10:12

Science is really the investigation of God’s blueprints, His recipes, and His music. Our world is His magnificent design, His living machines, His smorgasbords, and His symphonies. But scientists can only probe into the Almighty mind a minuscule amount. Our hands, eyes, and minds are too small to reach where only magnificence can go.

God in His wisdom made the world, all of it, all of the wild, the tamed, the poisonous, the dangerous, and the beautiful - earthquakes, avalanches, hurricanes, giant hail storms, rainbows, and roses. He made the sun that grows our plants, nourishes our bodies, and provokes skin cancer as well. God’s nature is scientific calculus to us. Why does He allow that? How does that fit into His great plan?

But it does. In His wisdom, He is able to turn what looks like a disaster, like chaos, into blessings for us. Romans 8:28 says that “We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Trust that your mighty God is wiser than you.
