[The Glory Unveiled]
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. ( Romans 1:20 )
Excuses have air lifted so many potentials and dreams from the theatre of preparation to the dump site of nonfulfillment. Many have lost the bearing and the compass that leads them to the true north of their purpose because of neglect born out of excuses. Excuses relieve us from taking responsibilities for ourselves and the things and people under our care. Excuses also create the false impression of comfort and peace so that we can lazy around. But the truth is that excuses are like narcotic drugs; they only make you high for a few minutes and then drop you from your glorified height just like how iniquity pulled Lucifer from the highest place to the lowest point. God’s invisible qualities [attributes] are not only enshrined in the Bible but openly exhibited in creation. The things God has made announce these qualities—the power and nature—of God. And the reason for which God permits His creation to display these attributes of God is for us to be without excuses. No man on the great day of reckoning can make any excuses that they didn’t get the opportunity to hear the word of God. Those excuses would have been nullified by the visible creations of God that explicitly display the nature and power of God. So people are without excuses because of God’s creation and actually, excuses only expose the irresponsibility of people.
Prayer_Bead: Invisible God, immortal King, Lord of lords, thank you for teaching me that I am without excuses in the areas of your purpose for my life and my stewardship to you.
