THE GIFT OF CREATION



God blessed Adam and Eve with all that was needed in order for them to prosper:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male

and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be

fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion

over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing

that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb

bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which

is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of

the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the

earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

(Genesis 1:27-30)


The story of Noah’s ark highlights the diversity of the Creator’s giving (Genesis 6-7). A

boat the size of a massive ocean liner was needed to preserve a sample of all the known

species. Whenever God gives and whatever He gives, there is endless variety. Why are

there so many species of birds and insects? Why is every snowflake and fingerprint

unique? Why are there so many differences in peoples' appearances? It is because God is

such an extravagant giver!


When people think about God as Creator, they often assume that His creative work ended

in Eden, but God’s extravagant giving through creation still continues. Right up to the

end of time as we know it, God will continue to create--including the great creative act

spoken of in Revelation 21:5 where He declares, "... Behold, I make all things new ..."

Meditate on Psalm 104 which details God's gifts in creation. It describes how God laid

the foundation of the earth, created light, and set the boundaries for the water. The

mountains and valleys of the earth and the fish, fowls, and animals are described in this

wonderful psalm.


Psalm104 alternates between what God did at creation and what He still does for

creation. Verses 27-29 reveal that the continuing existence of all creation depends on the

Creator’s extravagant, continuous giving. Verse 30 makes it clear that God’s creative

giving is ongoing: "Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created ..."


The psalmist concludes with the declaration, "O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In

wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches" (Psalm 104:24). Creation

is a tremendous example of our giving God who wants to supply all that you need to

accomplish your destiny.


PRAYER:


My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
