Proverbs 8:26-28 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
Have you ever stopped to wonder what might happen, if God tossed out the laws? What if God decided one day, “let’s toss out a law, and see what happens?”
Let’s start with the law of gravity. Now that sounds sort of like fun, to be floating around from place to place. We see the astronauts do it on TV, and that kind of looks like fun. However, we forget too soon, what Astronauts do is within a controlled area. What would happen if God did away with the law of gravity completely? One thing would be that the pull of the different amounts of gravitation from the other planets would vanish, and by the way, it would destroy our solar system
Floating around seems like fun until you remember, there would be nothing to stop you from floating right off into space. Who knows where you’d end up, or how fast would you go. Gravity helps control speed also. If there were no gravity… WHOOSH… Off you go at speeds your body could not handle.
Eliminating just one law changes everything. There are also laws of Physics, and laws of Molecular Structure. Without them, medicine would not be effective. There are also the laws of Nature that God put in place. What would it be like if you planted a tulip bulb, and when it blossomed, you had poison ivy? How about if your dog got pregnant, and delivering a litter of rattlesnakes in your home?
The Bible says, God set a compass upon the earth, established the clouds, and set all things in order. They are a controlling set of laws by which even those who hate God, and despise His name, still benefit from and are blessed by Him.
The next time you come to a stop sign, STOP, then take a moment to thank God for his wisdom, and His love, in providing all the laws He made to bless, and protect your life.
