“For the Lord is the great God, and the great King above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” Psalms 95:3-6 NKJV
I love to walk in the woods around our house. I enjoy seeing all the little parts of creation that many people wouldn’t notice. Things like; moss that is as green as a pond frog even though it’s winter, brown dead oak leaves that cling to their branches even when the rest have fallen, a quartz rock that shimmers in the sun, and so many more.
These verses from Psalms say that the Lord is the great God and that all the places and things on earth are His, because He made them. Whenever I am outside, I feel like I can see the Lord God in all the marvelous things he created. From tiny plants on the forest floor to the giant oaks and curvy sourwoods that reach toward heaven.
He didn’t have to make beautiful flowers that also smell so wonderful, but He did, just for us to sniff and enjoy. He didn’t have to make the sky so blue and the clouds so white, but He did, just so that we can smile as the puffy shapes float above the earth. He didn’t have to make the water bubble out of the earth in mountain springs, but He did, just so we could drink the clear, cool water.
This week let’s look at the earth in a brand-new way. Let’s look at God’s beautiful and amazing created earth; He made it for us to enjoy. He made it to show His love for us. Let’s try to see God in all that He has made. Where do you see God? In a puppy’s wagging tail, in a bug exploring a log, in a tall mountain that’s fun to climb, in a creek with salamanders swimming?
Draw a picture of your part of God’s created earth and include 3 things where you see God’s handiwork. Share it with your parents and ask them where they see God in His world.
Blessings as we all praise the Lord God for letting us share His magnificent earth!
