Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
Your faithfulness to the clouds. Psalm 36:5
Thank You, Lord, for the beauty of Your creation that reminds us day by day, season by season that You are a God of order, beauty, and creativity.
You could have made every plant the same. Every tree the same size. Every flower the same color.
But You didn't.
Every sea creature could be a whale, every land creature a tortoise, every bird in the sky a parrot.
But they aren't.
Every human could be the same height, have green eyes, the same color of skin, speak one language, and view things from one perspective.
But they don't.
The reason our world is beautiful is because it is DIVERSE.
Each of us are created in the image of God. But after that? Individual design!
For You formed my inward parts;
You knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139
I love that we belong to a God who chose to make a variety of colors, scents, sounds, plant life, light, animals, insects, fruits, vegetables, clouds, weather, planets, stars - and people.
Every detail planned by Him, and every detail was declared, "It is GOOD!"
One of my FAVORITE things about creation is that it knows it's Creator!
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for He comes,
for He comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
and the peoples in His faithfulness.
And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea,
and all that is in them, saying,
“To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” Revelation 5
All the earth worships You and sings praises to You; they sing praises to Your name. Psalm 66:4
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. Psalm 19:1
What an amazing God we serve!
