Praise Yahweh, Our Marvelous God and Creator!
In order to ponder Yahweh beyond His written Word, I have found it vital to escape man-made walls. Stepping outside the confines of my house is a simple act, but it is necessary. The summer breeze created by His atmospheric systems and weather patterns gives me a sense of tranquility that man’s synthetic creations cannot match.
I have also discovered immense pleasure in tilling a small garden space to plant squash. I am amazed at how much one small seed yields. The design is simple, yet it is perfect. Our Creator’s personality and character are exhibited by the small things in nature. Even in this fallen world, there are remnants of Eden’s original wonders.
Spring and summer are my favorite times of year. Birds begin to chirp, and everything is new. I often think about the attributes of our feathered friends. Wings lift them, and vocal chords enable communication within their kinds while bringing music to the human ear. Who else could have imagined such a creature? Who else could have brought it to life? Who else can speak things into actuality? Man can modify and build, but existing material and substances are needed, articles generated by the Lord.
Yahweh, our God, is unsurpassed...I reflect on His greatness, He created all that I see from nothing. No one else can do this…no one else can take void space and create life.
While many try to explain creation with theories, their vain attempts have become humorous. Flawed thinking and twisted logic endeavor to minimize Yahweh; however, His glory cannot be denied. It will outlast everything.
The heavens and the earth were brought into being through our Savior, they testify of His omnipotence. And no wonder creation is beyond human imagination…it was produced with holiness and love. Through His long-suffering, Christ holds it all in His hands, harvesting the souls that will be His forever.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them"; and it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a third day.
Then God said, "Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens." God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth." There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind"; and it was so. God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth." Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food"; and it was so. God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you;
And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you.
Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you;
And let the fish of the sea declare to you.
"Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
In whose hand is the life of every living thing,
And the breath of all mankind?”
For the LORD is a great God
And a great King above all gods,
In whose hand are the depths of the earth,
The peaks of the mountains are His also.
The sea is His, for it was He who made it,
And His hands formed the dry land.
He a was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
