Shall He not see?

He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see? He who instructs the nations, shall He not correct, He who teaches man knowledge? The LORD knows the thoughts of man, That they are futile. - Psalm 94v9-11

This world seems to think that God is sort of passe. I heard a podcast the other day where a man was explaining the reasons why we may or may not need or invent god or some something else to beleive in. Various sources have declared the the past that God was dead. Nietzsche wrote that God was dead, and that we had killed Him. Those ideas seemingly and become a part of life. We have written God out of our lives. We have outgrown God.

Because we have outgrown God we now ignore Him. We think we can go on our way without any regard for Him. It is kind of like the parents being gone and the kids at home are running amok.

The problem is not so much what the world is doing, but what happens when we allow their thinking to creep in our minds. We can get so distracted with all the stuff that we forget that God really hasn't moved or changed.

The God who invented hearing hears. The God who made the eye sees. The God who rules over and directs nations will teach. The God who teaches man everything knows the thoughts of men. He also knows that they are futile.

God still sees and hears and teaches and knows. We all need to remember that the next time we get, as folks used to say in the American south, 'too big for our britches.'
