Job 12:9 -- Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?

Job 12:9 — Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?

As grand and beautiful as it is, the Earth is part of something bigger: The great plan of God.

Everything about us is a result of God. Everything about this earth and the heavens is evidence of a grand intelligence. It is difficult for us to comprehend the creation. It did not happen by chance. It did not happen out of nothing. We were planned by God. We are part of the creation:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.Genesis 1:27

C.S. Lewis made this important observation in regards to the creation:

If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents-the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else’s. But if their thoughts-i.e. of materialism and astronomy-are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It’s like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset.1. C. S. Lewis, The Business of Heaven, Fount Paperbacks, U.K., p. 97, 1984.

Attributing the creation to an accidental big bang would be like putting trillions of Legos in a giant bag, shaking it up, and expecting it to form beautiful flowers, animals and landscapes. C.S. Lewis here is saying why should be believe those who claim life is an accident. According to their own logic, everything else is an accidental placement of atoms. Therefore, we can only conclude that their thoughts are a result of accidents as well.

The creation itself testifies of a creator. We are His people. We are His creations. We cannot disregard the creation. By doing so we run the risk of offending the great creator. 

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.Colossians 1:16
