Topic: Wonder Of God’s Creation [Tuesday May 9, 2017]
Text: Psalm 104:24-35
Key Verse: “O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches” (Psalm 104:24).
One of the greatest prophets in the history of mankind found it difficult to control his utter amazement until he avowedly exclaimed: “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee”. This prophet tried to measure the enormity of God’s power by virtue of what He had done and concluded that there was no problem or challenge that God could not solve.
Obviously, God’s creations are the greatest inventions ever. They are so unique that they are far higher than the sharpest of imaginations. He strategically and methodically planned them and they form the basis of any human invention. They are awesome and in God’s own words, “very good”. The suspension of the heavens, the stars, the moon, the planets, the galaxies, the milky ways and colourful constellations on invisible columns of air calls for deep meditation.
The separation of the land from the sea, the innumerable creatures and beasts on land and in water, sustenance of lives and provision for all creatures are thought-provoking and cogitation-arousing. The creation of the mammalian heart that works like an electrically-powered pumping machine and yet whose batteries do not run down, condemns the folly of atheists. As powerful as God is in creation, so is He in consumption.
As wonderful as His creation is, He is also ready to consume the world of sinners by the word of His mouth. “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41). Why not take heed therefore and avoid God’s indignation?
Thought for the day: A mind made great through salvation submits reactly to the greatness of the Almighty.
