“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
The view I’m fortunate to see from my window this morning appears to be a divine provision from the Lord of hosts awaiting the rendition of a skilled artist’s canvas. Just above the wooded hilltops, slow-moving and shape changing cloud formations reflect the suns early morning rays creating brilliant colors of blue, white, and gold. A white almost translucent mist hoovers just above the field of winter’s varying color shades of tan and brown, though pale greens are slowly emerging signaling the soon arrival of early spring. Cedar, Pine, Oak, and Hickory trees host a variety of birds this particular morning, and each song bird seems to be trying to out sing the other.
True, you do not have to be a believer in Christ to appreciate the beauty of nature, but only a believer in Christ can appreciate the beauty, depth and majesty of nature’s Creator. Without Him there would have been no beginning. Without Him light would have not pierced the darkness. Had He not spoken, “Let there be…” the word emptiness would suffice to describe the blackness, void, and absence of life. But you see, God did say, “Let there be…” and now words cannot adequately describe the life He has created.
Glory to God in the highest! You are God the Father, Jesus Christ the only Son, and the Holy Spirit. There is no other God like Yahweh! May all the heavens and earth declare Your glory! Amen.
