Kingdom Creation

(SOME OBSERVATIONS)

::

"In the beginning God created ..."

"... the heavens and the earth,

and all the host of them, were finished.

And on the seventh day God ended his work,"

Genesis 1'1;2'1-2.

::

Only human beings view nature with awe. We look up, we look around, we look down and we wonder.

The greatest wonder is the uniqueness and spectacular complexity of our own selves.

Believers know that all these things are the works of God. But the overarching phenomenon of them all must be our awareness of God.

Then there's procreation, particularly human procreation. For humans the production of a baby is their ultimate expression. Usually, parents are astounded by the miracle they have produced.

Believing parents know that it has more to do with God's work than their own.

David expressed it in his song to God:

"For you formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother’s womb.

I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well.

My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. and in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me," Psalm 139'13-16.

Just think, mentally and physically, humans are made up of multiple highly complex systems working together, to perform the tasks for which they were created.

Without doubt, all things declare the glory of God. Especially humans who are redeemed.
