GOD CREATED ALL TO BRING US JOY
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” — Psalm 19:1
Did you know that our miraculous God has made all of Creation for our delight? God is Creator of all. He spoke the world into existence by the power and authority of His word. His breath fills us with life. His created world perfectly sustains us. And He has blessed His world with beauty beyond imagining for us to enjoy. We are God’s joy and He seeks to bring joy to our lives through His Creation.
“Indeed, the world is established, firm and secure. Your throne was established long ago; You are from all eternity.” — Psalm 93:1-2
Our Almighty God is amazingly incomprehensible. He is infinite and eternal… without beginning and without end… free from the constraints of time and space. He rules over all and is ruled by nothing. All Creation answers to Him. His created universe is of such beauty, such intricacy, such majesty that we can only stand in reverential awe of its Creator.
“I cannot imagine how the clockwork of the universe can exist without a Clockmaker.” — Voltaire
God created us in His image and for His glory. We are the pride of His creation. He has entrusted all to our care. We know in the depths of our being that we are His. We owe Him everything, even our very life. We praise Him in the splendor of His holiness.
How glorious is His love for us. It is infinite, unfathomable, unchanging, neverending. His love permeates deep into our spirit. We can never be lost from His love. Our times rest in His hands. Each of our days, we live in His enveloping presence.
“God’s finger can touch nothing but to mold it into loveliness.” — George MacDonald
All Creation is a gift from God. All the works of His hands are for our enjoyment. He longs for us to take time to marvel at the incredible beauty of all that He has created. The universe revolves around Him. All nature yields to His authority. All life is dependent upon Him. We stand in amazement at the intricate beauty of His world… the wonders of His Creation.
“Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leaves you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing, and listen as Heaven whispers, ‘Do you like it? I did it just for you.’” — Max Lucado
All of God’s breathtaking works play out before us. They are a stirring display of His power and majesty. He has painted the infinite shades of color from His palette… the vivid turquoise of tropical waters, the deep azure blue of the ocean, the snowy whiteness of clouds against a radiant blue sky, the rich green fields abloom with vibrant wildflowers, the sunset skies awash with glorious hues, the golden glow of a rising full moon, the brilliance of silvery stars on a clear evening.
We praise Him for the awe-inspiring splendor of His Creation. We bow in humble adoration before Him. Amidst our day, we stop and offer Him thanks for all that He has done and will do. We praise Him for the magnificent works of His hands that surround us everywhere. We maintain an intimate awareness of His ever presence with us. We live our lives in reverence of our awesome God.
