Knowing God Post 2

      Genesis 1:31 God created and it was good.

 

For six days God unleashed the power of His creativity.  He set the earth and the heavens in place.  Look at the multitude of colors and shapes of his creation.  Systems were launched that have been running flawlessly ever since.  Look at the diversity of His creation.  Mountains, valleys and deserts were all made by the same awesome God.  When all was in place, at some point on day six after creating the last of the land animals, He unleashed His greatest masterpiece.

My friends, you are that masterpiece.  All of the rest of creation He simply spoke it into existence.  When He made man and woman He did so with His own hands.  He breathed the breath of life into them.  He made us in His own image and set us in the Garden of Eden where life was perfect.

On this side of the fall, it can be easy to dismiss the Garden.  There is so much in our world that seems far from perfection.  But that is not how it was supposed to be.  God created and it was good.  Your deepest inner being knows this but we have forgotten.  I encourage you to dig it up.  Take time to memorize the three verses below to force your heart and mind to meditate on the goodness of God’s creation.  Rediscover who He is.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”  Psalm 19:1

 

“Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” John 1:3

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
