I mentioned to a friend, "I'm on a journey to experience more of the wonder of God." She looked at me with a different kind of wonder ... wondering whether I'd fallen off the deep end, spiritually. As I explained what "wonder" means, she understood. Taking this journey is something every Christian should consider.
“The wonder of God is that moment of spiritual awakening that makes us curious to know God more.”
Some may consider that moment a little thing; but studying my hand pointed me back to the Creator. In a similar way, God used a colored graphic of the human eye in Gil Killam's life as he sat in the examination room of his eye specialist.
In "The Wonder of It All," Killam wrote, "I studied it for a moment and was astounded at the intricacy of the creation of the eye. I wondered how anyone could deny the existence of a Master Mind that made this amazing organ ...."
Killam's observation caused him to "marvel" at God's great power. He wrote, "We read in Colossians, 'For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth ... all things have been created through him and for him' (Colossians 1:16, NIV). The human body is a fantastic work of the Creator."
Likewise, Dr. David A. Steen, a professional biologist, is repeatedly moved to praise God and declare
His wonderful acts as he explores the breathtaking wonders of creation. He wrote the devotional, God of Wonders, to encourage others to discover this “overwhelming sense of awe.”
