Reading from Genesis to our grandkids these last few nights has gotten me thinking again about God’s wonderful creation. Look in God's word, see the hand of Almighty God and praise Him for His powerful, creative work.
"In the beginning" Genesis 1:1 is not the only place in the Bible where we read about creation. The remarkable work of God's creation is not a one-passage phenomenon. Woven throughout Scripture are reminders that God fashioned our world–telling us again and again how vital it is to believe that the universe and everything in it came through the masterful work of His mighty hand.
Last night after putting the kids to bed Debbie and I were winding down by watching the Tony Awards, the annual ceremony in New York City’s Radio City Music Hall celebrating Broadway productions and performances.
This year’s winner of Best Leading Actress in a Musical: was Jessie Mueller for her recreation of the life and music of Carole King in “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.”
In Mueller’s acceptance speech she began by thanking God which was met by a deafening silence. I had the eerie feeling that she was speaking to 6000 people who were ignorant of the love of God and the wonder of His creation.
We continually need to be reminded of the reality of God and stand in the awe of His creation otherwise, we could easily be influenced by the teaching we hear continually from educators and media who hold to a view and a lifestyle that rules out God.
We acknowledge God's role in bringing everything into existence so that we will give Him and Him alone the praise He deserves.
