Today is Earth Day…but in my mind it is something incredibly more magnificent.
I believe that the Earth was created by God. By His great power and love, He created all that we know and see. Such beauty and awesome wonder that should not be denied.
Genesis 1:1-5 “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.”
Genesis chapters 1 & 2 continue to tell us the truth of how God created this amazing world with perfect wisdom, care and meaning. God does things that are good. He does things that are very good.
When you see a beautiful sunset, a full moon, or sky full of sparkling stars…think of HIM. When you see the massive oceans, the mighty rivers, or the rain pouring down…think of HIM. When you see a tree towering hundreds of feet above you, flowers blooming in full color, or green hills rolling on for miles…think of HIM.
His creation doesn’t stop with the plants and animals. God made every human that walks this earth (Psalm 139:13). He made and formed YOU and He desires that you would worship Him for He is Worthy! Believe in Him and all of your sins are forgiven…that perfect peace is found only in HIM (Romans 8: 1-11).
How great Thou art, Lord! Our Creator is worthy of ALL honor and praise. Let us be stil and worship HIM.
