These articles are speaking about wonder and aren't speaking of learning, technology or knowledge. But, somewhere it is written that we should not lean on our own understanding, but on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. This isn't the basis of these articles, but it does state what I've wrote about in "The Wonder V".

We can see that God is at work when we see nature at work. Even in this day when there was a perfect storm off of the east coast of the US, We read that God uses the winds as his chariot and the winds are his messengers. My intent isn't to interpret current events or the Bible. I am not wanting to explain what God meant by what he said or if God meant something in the storms on the east coast. But, I do want to acknowledge that God uses the winds as his chariot and his messengers. The winds go everywhere, so he does too and listens to the reports from his messengers, the wind.

We read that God gives rain to the grass to provide food for the animals in the wild. If he doesn't supply the rain, they perish. They die of thirst and they die of hunger when God doesn't provide the rain and they thrive when he does. We not only think that the wind and rain are random, but we also think that we are the ones who are responsible for the weather and what it does. We would rather think it was our doing or the doing of luck than to think that it is God who is doing it.

These are just a couple of examples of things that we feel we must explain. Somehow, it is up to us to explain why God either does or doesn't save someone's life, does or doesn't bring a storm or send rain for the wheat or provide the sun for our pick nick.
