(Almost) All Creation Obeys Its Creator

A sermon preached at Athens Victory Chapel, GA, April 28, 2024

When God spoke simple words of command in the beginning such as “Let there be light,” all creation obeyed. The incredible forces of nature still obey the command of God to this day.

All of creation obeys the commands of God… except mankind!

D.L. Moody wrote, “Did you ever notice how all but the heart of man obeys God. Look through history and you will find this true: God said, ‘let there be light’ and there was light,’ ‘Let the waters bring forth…’ and the water brought forth abundantly. Jesus spoke to the sea and the sea obeyed; He spoke to a fig tree and it withered and died. He spoke to devils and they fled. He spoke to the dead and they rose. But when He speaks to man, man will not obey. Man is out of harmony with God.”

Creation Speaks is my teaching ministry that glorifies our Creator and teaches the truth of creation. William Wise Nature Notes is my wildlife and birding photo blog documenting the beauty, design and wonder of God’s creation.
