"We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these things to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them." (Acts 24:15b)
"Has not my hand made all these things?"
When you were a child did you ever wonder how
the ocean didn’t slide off the earth? How all the water didn’t spill out
and then eventually there would be no more water? Often I’m reminded
through nature how amazing is our God. Like how the ocean doesn’t...
majestically tells of God, the greatest inventor. Who but God could
design oceans teeming with unimaginable sea creatures from microscopic
algae to gigantic whales and countless colorful marine life? Plus
grasses and coral and sand and, well, the list is infinite.
The worship song by
Nicole C. Mullen (Redeemer) poses these questions: Who taught the sun
where to stand in the morning, Who told the ocean you an only come this
far? Who showed the moon where to hide 'til evening, Whose words alone
can catch a falling star? And the lyrics answer perfectly: Well I know
my Redeemer lives, I know my Redeemer lives; All of creation testify,
This life within me cries, I know my Redeemer lives.
Inventor and our Redeemer, one. One God. That is good news.

"Praise the Lord , O
my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with
splendor and majesty. He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he
stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper
chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on
the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his
servants. He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.
You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above
the mountains…….How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them
all; the earth is full of your creatures."
(Psalm 104:1-6, 24)
