God’s Creative Beauty

November 21, 2022

IMG_3892My wife and I are in the middle of a much needed and long overdue vacation. There are many amazing things to see in our own country and around the world. We chose, for many reasons, the northeastern portion of the United States. We’ve seen two of the great lakes, Ontario and Eerie. Their sizes can be overwhelming and yet they are the smaller of the five. Looking out and knowing there is a shore on the other side — somewhere — but beyond the human eye is amazing and a reminder of just how big this world is and still He holds it all, and us all, in His hands.

As immense as it is, and as small we are, He cares for even our small things. Many times I hear, “I didn’t want to trouble God with my small issues.” The truth is if God really is God (and He is) everything is a small thing to Him. That makes His love even more amazing.

Romans 8:38
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. (NLT)

The Lord spoke [imagine that — a spoken word creates!] all the world into creation in six days and one of His creations was mankind. And He loves us. He loves us to the point where we severed our relationship with Him through our sin and He made (He is creative) a way for us to be reconciled through Jesus.

Romans 5:8
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)

When mankind fell into sin, walked willfully into rebellion, God’s heart broke. He could not, would not let us remain separated from Him for all of eternity. Even in the garden there was already a plan for our redemption and it would come at a tremendous cost — His Son. But God loved you that much. He loved me that much. Check out these words from Genesis where God is speaking to the serpent, satan, speaking of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus:

Genesis 3:15
15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will crush your head, and you will strike His heel.” (NIV)

We look at all the amazing things God has created, but to Him you and I are those fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. We were created to bring Him praise and glory. He delights in us and loves us. For God so loved [insert your name here] that He gave His one and only Son for you. That is amazing and beautiful and worthy of all our praise forever, amen.
