Pachaltide Reflections Week 5 Day 6


It appears to many modern people that natural processes alone can explain springs, and that this means that the Psalmist is wrong when he says that it is God that makes springs for animals to drink from. However, the existence of natural causes does not mean that God is not the primary cause. God is not an equal player in creation, taking away agency from natural causes. He is the very ground of existence itself. It would be like saying that because a carpenter used a hammer to build a table, it is really the hammer that built the table, not the carpenter. God created and guides all things.

Psalm 104:10-13

Thou makest springs gush forth in the valleys; they flow between the hills, they give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst. By them the birds of the air have their habitation; they sing among the branches. From thy lofty abode thou waterest the mountains; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy work


Christ is risen from the dead,
By death trampling down on death,
And to those in the tomb,
He has granted life!
