Hidden Heroes (Part 5)

Romans 1:20
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

When many people think abut heroes that think about people that fly, run or do things with super human abilities. However, there are everyday people that perfect miraculous acts with a cape or cool uniform. They are hidden heroes.

An Invisible God 

For some people this may come as a surprise or come across as a bit cliche but God is the greatest hidden hero. He demonstrates His power in a way that all people see it and know it yet, no one has even seen His face. No mortal knows what He looks like nor do have any concept of His size. 

Why is God an invisible hero?

People often say that God is a big angry being in the sky that we call upon in times of stress, worry or immediate need to save them; but He is more than that. The bible says that God hung the planets on nothing! He allows the clouds to be broken up and drop down dew. Only he knows where the winds come from and where they go. God sustains the life of man. He has the power!

When was the last time that you saw a super-hero save someone from a disaster before they were ever in trouble? Never right? Why is that? Because the super heroes afford that person the opportunity to try to do what they can to escape first. If they aren’t able to free themselves from the issue, then they will wait for their cry for help. Sometimes we wait for God to come bail us out of bad situations but we never cry out for help. Obviously, He knows but just because God knows that we need help, it doesn’t necessarily mean that He will come to the rescue unless we call on Him. 

Our text states:

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

What does this mean? 

  1. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen – There are many invisible things that were once invisible but are now clearly seen. Things like micro-organisms, hidden forces that were once considered forces of God. God has given His creations knowledge to understand nature, science and mathematics so that we can now clearly see and understand. (How much more do you understand now that you are older than you did when you were 10, 20 or even 30 years younger?)
  2.  being understood by the things that are made –  As God deals with man, He imparts more knowledge to us and we understand things more and more. Even in the animal world. They even understand more and more. However, humans have seemed to gain much more knowledge and understand more about this world than we ever did in years past.
  3. even his eternal power and Godhead – People know more about God now, than they ever did in any other time in history. The only people that knew more about God were the ones that walked with Him. Adam & Eve, Moses, Elisha, The Disciples and of Course Jesus. God has power and this power lies in His godhead or trinity. Three in one! All co-equal and all powerful. I don’t understand this concept but I believe it by faith.
  4. so that they are without excuse – For people to say that God doesn’t exist, really makes me scratch my head in disbelief. There is compelling evidence both historically and biblically that validates that He does. When one indicates that there is no God and there is no evidence to prove that He is there I ask them to prove their claim. The only claim that they can articulate is that He isn’t tangible and they can’t see Him. My response to that is that their consciousness isn’t able to be seen but they are still alive. There is no excuse for ignorance. One can’t claim ignorance for the test when you didn’t take the time to assimilate the information. 

People often have negative feelings about God and the way things happen under his watch because they are under the assumption that God rewards good behavior with tangible things. They think that He awards bad behavior with bad situations and the loss of their possessions. This is not true! We have often seen people that have no right getting good things in this life get those things while those that seemingly deserve these good things go through distress. Why is that? Because God sees what we don’t! In our next devotional series we will talk about why God does what He does and how it effects us. Join us again as we address real life issues with biblical answers on Worship With Willie.
