As I look outside my window this morning, I see the wonders of God. Snow covered hills, trees, flowers, a river, mountains and clouds and a big blue sky. The river is teaming with life. We often see swans and geese and ducks, and the occasional otter. Quite often a bald eagle will swoop past us or perch in the trees. Deer frequent the paths in our yard. Squirrels play in the trees.
God created it all. In harmony. And then there are the heavenly bodies. A full moon on a clear night reflecting off the water of the river.
A rainbow after a rain. The sun and the stars. And then there is the fascinating and unusual phenomena that occurs. Eclipses, blood moons. Aurora. Thunder and Lightning. Sunrises and sunsets. And the still, soft wind. God is in it all. He created it . The universe and everything in it. He created you and me. And he loves His creation.

Why are we taught that we evolved from other forms of life? Does science disprove the existence of God? Does science contradict the creation? Some of these questions may never be answered. There are some good books and documentaries about this where the authors lay down the evidence. Check out The Case for a Creator and The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel or Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell for good discussions on these issues. So, what does God’s Word say about how the world began and how man came into being? Why should it matter? To me, knowing who God is gives me all the more reason to worship and praise Him and helps me realize how big a God He is. Continue reading “God Created”
