Proverbs 20 – The Lamp of the Lord

Creation07Some of the most obvious external evidences to “see” that God exists are the manifestations of the fact that God created man in His own image. The non-believer who truly believes that man is just chemicals and cells that have magically evolved over time into the intricate and intelligent human beings that we are will never be able to adequately explain these things. But we get the answers over and over again from the Bible; and verse 27 is another such example:

The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord,
searching all his innermost parts

The unbeliever cannot account for the concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, beauty, love, or even how we have a conscience. The knowledge of such things are because of the reflection of our Creator; and along with our eternal souls, they are His gifts to us.
