Experiencing Creation

In Genesis the Lord created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. I stand in awe at His creation. My friend, Esther, wrote a Bible study lesson called “How Great is Our God.” After learning just a snippet of info, all I could do was just praise the Lord. The only words that would cross my lips were “Wow, Lord, You are so good. Thank You, Lord. You are awesome, Lord.”

He took care of every detail of creation, down to the itsy bitsy tiny little microorganisms which are unseen to our eyes. He has wisdom beyond our imagination. Wisdom was with Him from the beginning of creation according to Proverbs 8.

Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. (Proverbs 8:10-11 NIV)

Since wisdom is more precious than silver or gold, I desire to seek God’s wisdom. I think wisdom first of all is in His word. Reading and studying the Word of God is a must to obtain even a smidget of wisdom. And then walking in obedience to His Word. But I have had my breath taken away when I can literally experience just a part of His creation. Wisdom spoke these words:

I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth. (Proverbs 8:27-29 NIV)

I do not live where the sea meets it boundary, so I like to feel the sand in my toes and smell the salt air once in a while. This week, I’m experiencing a different part of creation in the Caribbean. To top that off, I get to watch my child play baseball on a Caribbean island. So I’m not at my computer (I set this on the timer) because I’m out watching my child, enjoying my husband, and having an adventure with God on an island. I’ll respond to your comments and emails when I return. May the Lord bless you this week!

I want to be there with you! My favorite observation of God's creation has always been sitting on the porch of a vacation condo and watching the power of the ocean as it rolls on and off the shore. Also the beauty of the sky meeting the water. We do serve and awesome and powerful God!
