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.
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
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.
