God made heaven and earth and everything that ever was and will be in them. Everything we could ever need or desire. And it was very good. He is perfect, could he do any less. I am amazed at all the unique and intricate plants and animals. I believe God was excited to create them. The gorgeous environments and magnificent scenery.
“God blessed them and said to them, ‘be fruitful and increase in number’; Fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:28
He was so happy to have people to love and he wanted more. Everything was just for them. He thought of everything that we could enjoy. It was theirs to rule over and nurture. Nothing was too good for them.
“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning-the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31
It had to be perfect and everything we could ever desire was thought of. At times I just sit and ponder the things in my surroundings, which isn’t much, but each thing has so much pleasure and memories attached. Pictures of my family and special things from people I love. Simple things like my clock. How God created seasons and time to come and go.
“I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, that brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.” Exodus 6:7
If he could just have a special people all his own he would do everything for them and they would love him and obey him out of gratitude. But we are selfish and wicked. We don’t deserve anything but that doesn’t stop him. He still wants that special people to do everything for.
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14
“I will do it. I am willing to do the hard work for you. I just want your love, says the God.
“The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” Exodus 15:2
We really need to realize just what we have. He is everything and he does everything and he promises a future because he is our ultimate salvation through his son.
“Who is like you- majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?” Exodus 15:11
The more you get to know him the larger he becomes in your eyes. Just like a jumbo jet is tiny when you look up at it 30,000 miles away. But stand beside it, it is massive. Draw closer to God and see just how big he gets.
“The Lord reigns for ever and ever.” Exodus 15:18
This is the reason I am at peace. Bottom line is that God does have us all in the palm of his hand and he is always working. His will, will be done.
