Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Genesis 2:7 “Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed of life, and the man became a living being.”
Isaiah 40:28 “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth, He will not grow weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.”
The Earth's incredible weight, estimated at sextillion tons, and its precise tilt of twenty-three degrees are marvels of design. Any slight deviation would disrupt the delicate balance of seasons. Our planet rotates at a staggering speed of 1,000 miles per hour or 9,000,000 miles per year, yet none of us have been hurled into the vastness of space. The God who commanded the stars and planets into existence, establishing their perfect order, initiated creation with a mere word. But when it came to humanity, God's love went even further. He didn't just speak us into existence; he personally shaped us, leaving his fingerprints on our very being. From the dust of the Earth, he crafted us with tender care. Such is the depth of his love for us!
Our Creator stooped down and intricately molded us, each with a unique purpose, to reflect his image. We are not random beings; we are the result of God's intentional craftsmanship. His hands, filled with love, formed us. We are cherished and deeply loved by the One who brought us into existence. We aren't the result of a cosmic splash; God desired a relationship with you and me. He is still reaching and touching us.
Thank him today for his care and love over your life. Give him your life and ask him to touch you today.
Thank you, Jesus, for your care in my life. Thank you for creating me in your image and for creating me to love you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
