Proverbs 30:4 Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Whose hands have gathered up the wind? Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is the name of his son? Surely you know!
This proverb picks up on some words from the Book of Job [see Job chapter 38 on]. The wise man sees that there is a whole lot he doesn’t see! Today people believe they can see how the universe was made, see how life came into being. They build a perception on observation. “Seeing is believing”! Seeing is not enough – knowing and understanding lead us to truth.
This proverb points out that there is enough in Nature and human history to demonstrate that there is One far great and wiser than us Who has made all things and wants us to know Him.
Romans 1:19-20 … what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. (20) For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
We can watch a potter make a vase on a wheel – that doesn’t mean we know how to “throw” a pot for ourselves!
We can see the evidence and do nothing. Or we can seek to know the Creator and His Son.
