“If you search God with all your heart and soul you will find Him.” (Deuteronomy 4:29)
Surrender to the creator, then you will get the answer for your questions and you will find the way to iron out all your problems. God is at your doorsteps. Only you have to open the door. We should not stay in our own cocoons. Come out from our-own made problems, and look at the nature and apply the wisdom. How will we find God?
Here, we see how Francis S. Collins, a renowned scientist, long time head of the Human Genome Project, and overseer of the readings of the code of life in the 21st century sees it. He believes that God cares about us and intervene in human affairs. He was an atheist, then an agnostic; lastly he surrendered to Jesus, as Lord and God.
He says, one paragraph written by C. S. Lewis, (a noted scholar and writer) was just (like it was written) for him. It cleared all his doubts and answered for his questions. The majesty and beauty of creation made him to surrender to Christ.
Lewis wrote:, "I am trying to prevent any one saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him;” I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God.” That is one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic… or else he would be the devil of hell. You must take a choice either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a mad man or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as demon; or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to."
At last he made a choice when he was hiking in the Cascade Mountains in Mississippi, the majesty and beauty of God’s creation overwhelmed his resistance. He saw a beautiful and unexpected frozen waterfall. There he knelt in the grass and surrendered to Jesus Christ.
Seekers, there are answers. There is joy and peace to be found in the harmony of God’s creation.
Jesus, the heavens proclaim your glory and skies display your craftsmanship. We surrender at your feet by seeing your wonderful creations, its designs, intricacy, orderliness, majesty and beauty and personally involved creator. You be revealed to the real seekers and to be answered their questions and solved their problems. All we ask in the name of Jesus.
