My take: This is WHAT seperates the God of the Bible from the gods and and everyone else. This WHY He (not…it) is deserving of worship, praise and glory. This passage tells us HOW; He simply spoke existence into being from nothing! If you want to call that the ‘big bang’, fine but it was no accident and didn’t take billions upon billions of randomness to happen. God said, ‘let it be’ and BOOM! Its amazing and thus He is even more so. Its incredible how gravity keep the planets in their places. How atoms don’t randomly split apart for God, the One who loves you and I, commanded it so and to this day, they all hold firm. Because of the gross sin, God was forced to wipe the 1st act of people away save Noah and 7. In the book of Revelation, we read He will need do it again with fire. Maybe atomic, maybe not. Regardless, I sure hope to be out of this place.
My prayer: Creator of all, You are amazing and You created it all, including me. Help me to rise and shine and give You the glory You so richly deserve.
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein,” Psalms 24:1b
My take: When you look out to nature, the sky, seas, rivers, creatures, stars, sun in its rise and set, rainbows, and the universe what do you see?
Accidental matter or a magnificent creation?
If you just see matter, there is some much you are missing. If you see creation, should we not be inspired to humility, worship, and awe of the being who made this something full out of ( ). Now that is POWER! Wondering working power!
My prayer: Lord, help me respect Your creation and see a glimpse of You in the fullness of Your creation this and every day.
Lets say you are walking along a beach and find a fine watch, full of handy apps, gps, bluetooth, gyro, sensors, etc and then your next words are, “wow, look what the sea washed ashore all on its own”…”wow, the salt water and sand are really incredible to have rolled around for billions of years to have made this fine watch. Lucky me”.
No sir, Apple made the watch with talent on loan from God, wether they realize it or not.
To have a creation, there must be an intelligent Creator. Human beings and the whole universe, last I checked where a tad bit more complex than my nifty watch.
Thank God He is so patient with us.
God is not just awe-some, He is awe-all. Get right with Him!
