“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” -Genesis 1:1
“I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” -Psalms 139:14-16
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” -Psalms 19:1
These verses could never be re-written more perfectly. God’s glory is truly evident in His creation. No man who has ever lived on this earth, was more powerful than our God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. He created the entirety of the Earth. Everything you see, and even what you don’t see, God created. He created you!! Mankind (who are not, by the way, animals) is God’s most treasured creation. Even the skies show God’s handiwork. Every intricate detail, proves God’s holiness and perfection. Simply look around you. Forget about all the Bible critics out there and look at the creation for what it is. Do you really, logically, believe that it all came about by a Big Bang? Or can you seriously look at a human being and say they came from a blob in the ground? The sad part is, people all over the world believe this.
As you sit at your desk, on your couch, or in your car, and read this blog post, do this: look around you and observe everything. It could be a calculator, a TV, the steering wheel, your bag of chips, or even the computer you’re looking into. Now, listen up. Everything you’re seeing, everything you can touch, feel, taste, and hear has been created/made. Your computer is man-made, and so is your TV, steering wheel, and your potato chips. Don’t even try to be “scientific” and say that your chips simply appeared one day. No, those chips (or fill in the blank) were invented, created, put into factories, eventually sold in stores, and now is (if you put chips in your blank) entering your body. But the point is that those _______ had a creator. Everything that has been created, obviously has a creator. It’s common sense! So look around you, at the beautiful, flawless creation of the world. From tropical beaches, to snow-capped mountains, to wide open deserts; God created it ALL. He is the unseen Creator of the creation we see all around us. In fact, by seeing the creation, we are able to know God more. We can clearly see His character by observing His creation. His majesty, His love, His knowledge, His power, all of it. Four words – our God is awesome!!
Speaking of God’s marvelous creation…my family and I took a day trip to Monterey and Carmel a couple weekends ago. I created a gallery of pictures from the day. It was so beautiful! It just further proves the glory of God that we see in His creation!
