The Wonder of Creation

In a devotional. I was reminded of the astronauts circling the moon 10 times in 1968. As those memorable pictures of the earth came into view each time they came out from behind the moon. They knew what they would do. Each was prepared to read a portion of the Genesis account of creation.As the earth came into view, we heard “In the beginning God created heaven and earth. and
the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep”

As each one read more of the story , one could not deny the existence of God. They gave credit to God for His creation. There is clear evidence of God’s marvelous handiwork everywhere you look but the view of this earth from space was a special validation of the existence of the God who loves us and wants the best for us. Just the other evening , the moon and some bright stars caused me to just stand and look at the sky , thanking God for where I was and what I have.

Just think of the countless trillions of stars that were created on the fourth day. Myriad of different birds, fish and land animals created on the fifth and sixth days.Who but God could have done all this in one week! An unbeliever told a boy “I will give you a quarter if you can tell me where God is” the lad replied, “I will give you 50 cents if you can tell me where God is not”

God gave his perspective through Jeremiah, “Do I not fill heaven and earth? Says the Lord”
(Jeremiah 23:24) Revelation 4:11 sums up the matter with these words: “you are worthy Lord to receive glory, honor and power: for you have created all things ,and for your pleasure they are and were created.”

If you don’t already, may I suggest that every morning , thank God forgiving you rest, thank God for the day you had yesterday and ask God to be with you this day and guide you in all you do, especially
guide you to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and His creation. Every evening thank Him for guiding you this day and praise Him for all He does for each one of us. Amen
