Daily Devotional – July 6
Have you considered our solar system? It has a nice, neat organized structure. Our planets all have stable and relatively round orbits. This structure, prevents planets from colliding with each other. In fact, this design protects Earth from being hit by another large planet. As scientists examine outer space, they are now discovering other planets orbiting other suns. They are finding that many of these exoplanet orbits are so erratic that collisions with other planets are a real possibility. How did our solar system become so organized? Evolution is about chaos and random changes – not design, organization, or systems. Our solar system shows order.
Even the name we give it, the solar “system,” shows we know it is organized. We do not call it the “solar accident,” “solar non-system” or “solar disorder”…but the solar system. Even those who believe in evolutionary processes as the explanation for everything cannot help but use words that signify design and order. Order does not happen by accident and chance. Order means there must be someone who put this into an orderly system, and that orderly solar system-maker is God.
Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.
~ Isaiah 48:13
