The Bible describes God in two major areas which illustrate His amazing generosity. It
identifies Him as Creator and as Redeemer. God is the One Who gives both natural and
These titles reveal the essence of God, and throughout the Bible He is worshiped in both
of these roles. In Revelation 4:11, the elders sang, "Thou are worthy, O Lord, to receive
glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they
are and were created." In Revelation 5:9, they sang: ..."Thou are worthy to take the
book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by
thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nations..."
The Bible repeatedly celebrates God’s twin gifts of creation and redemption:
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the
inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of
darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we
have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image
of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things
created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether
they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were
created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things
consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the
firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it
pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace
through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself
by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. (Colossians 1:12-20)
Verse 16 praises God because "by him all things were created" and verse 20 for
" having made peace through the blood of his cross." These are His gifts of creation and
The biblical record starts with a description of God’s gift of creation and reveals that
God’s first recorded words to humanity were, "...Behold I have given you..." (Genesis
1:29). These words reveal God’s nature at the outset of His relationship with mankind.
He is a giver, and creation is one of His greatest gifts.
Take time to look around you today at the wonders of God's creation. His amazing,
abundant generosity as a Creator is revealed in the beauties that surround you. The one
who has provided all of these wondrous things will surely provide the resources
necessary for you to achieve your destiny.
