Morning Story and Dilbert

This one is a true story of an incident that happened just a few years ago at USC (University of Southern California).

There was a professor of philosophy there (at the college) who was a deeply committed atheist.  His primary goal was for one required class was to spend the entire semester attempting to prove that God couldn’t exist.  His students were always afraid to argue with him because of his impeccable logic.  For twenty years, he had taught this class and no one had ever had the courage to go against him.  Sure, some had argued in class at times, but no one had ever really gone against him because of his reputation.

At the end of every semester on the last day, he would say to his class of 300 students, “If there is anyone here who still believes in Jesus, stand ” In twenty years, no one…

From The Foundation!

How vivid is your imagination?

Can you see God creating the universe, sprinkling the sky with stars, anchoring the sun and moon in their respective positions to give us light and provide us with health?

Can you see Him scooping out the rivers and seas and building up mountains that we would have water and protection?

Can you see Him thoughtfully providing seed–for every flower, vegetable, plant and tree that we would have sustenance and shade and continuation?

Can you see Him insightfully, carefully, thinking about the formation of man–every vital organ in place doing exactly what He intended them to do that our blood would flow, cells renew, limbs would work, eyes would see, ears would hear, tongues move to speech and praise, digestion system process food, hearts would pump, lungs inhale and exhale air/separating oxygen and all we need to breathe?

Now, can you see Him looking down on all His work–knowing from the foundation–what mankind would do–to destroy everything He had made and yet He says–“It is good!”?

Think about your own life.  As much as He loves us, as much as He wants us to have all good things, as much as He wants to spare us misery, trials, and tribulations, He knows exactly when we will mess up, time and time again, but He loves us enough to provide us a way out–through Jesus Christ.  And He knows who will accept Him, believe Him, and who will reject Him–from the foundation of the world-and yet He was willing to sacrifice Himself for all who believe!

He has known from the time He envisioned us when we would fall and when we would rise again with wisdom and knowledge–understanding and insight as to how  to truly live for Him and from the foundation–He has never given up on us!  He is yet providing a way out–from all ungodliness and unrighteousness into a right relationship with Him. Open your heart and mind and accept what He has planned for you–from the foundation!  Hallelujah!
