Do You Marvel at God’s Creation?

“Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; he calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; not one is missing.”

Isaiah 40:26

Ponder This

It’s the Lord Jesus who fuels the sun with its power. It’s the Lord Jesus who veils the moon with its beauty. It’s the Lord Jesus who guides the planets. There’s no natural law. It’s the laws of God that nature obeys.

Joyce and I took a vacation some years ago down on a little island in the Bahamas and there was no television and no radio—just a little place there on the beach; we loved it. There was a dock out in front, and at nighttime Joyce and I would just go down and get flat on our backs on the dock and look up at the stars and just lie there and talk and marvel at the stars in the Universe.

You see, Jesus is the producer of creation. Jesus is the preserver of creation. By Him, all things exist. And Jesus is the purpose of creation. Colossians 1:16 says, “All things were created through Him and for Him.” The Universe came from Him, the Universe is sustained by Him, and everything comes back to Him. People ask, “What’s the world coming to?” It’s coming to Jesus, “For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things” (Romans 11:36).

  • When was a time you marveled at God’s work in creation? How did that impact you?
  • How does the truth that God is reconciling all things to Himself encourage you?

Practice This

Go outside or look out your window and spend time praising God for all He has done in creation and for how He is reconciling all things to Himself.


Real Truth Never Changes

Real truth never changes, and the truth about government is that it is God who ordains it, leaders who are responsible for it, and citizens who are accountable to it. The privilege of being called Americans comes with significant responsibilities—to God, to each other, and to the world.
