The Right Use of Knowledge

"The fool says in his heart ‘there is no God.’" Psalm 14:1

"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork." Psalm 19:1

With each passing year we learn more about the universe and marvel at its vastness and beauty. The universe is so big that it cannot be measured in miles or kilometers, but must be measured in light years. A light year is the distance you could travel at the speed of light. Light travels through space at 186,000 miles per second. When we look at our sun we are seeing it as it was nine minutes ago. When we peer into the deepest recesses of the universe we are actually seeing images as they were tens of billions of years ago because it takes that long for their light to reach us.

The great Astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe was still expanding at incredible speed. He saw that in every direction the most distant stars were moving away from us. This led to the Big Bang Theory which most Scientists viewed as a great threat. Since the Bible teaches that God created the universe in a blinding moment by speaking it into existence, many scientists equated the theory as a religious view.

Today, the Big Bang Theory is universally accepted. In this case the heavens are declaring that they are God’s handiwork. The Hubble Telescope which orbits earth sends us stunning pictures of distant worlds too astonishingly beautiful to describe, yet the fool still says in his heart, "there is no God." All generations before us could never see what we are seeing today. In these last days God is unmistakably declaring Himself as our Creator.

The great preacher Spurgeon once said, -"Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great as fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom."

What you do see when you gaze at the wonders of the heavens? The fool acknowledges only what his eyes can see, but the wise see the majesty of the glory of the invisible God.
