Who is God?

The heavens were made by the word of the LORD,
and all the stars, by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the water of the sea into a heap;
he puts the depths into storehouses. Psalm 33:6-7

the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea and everything in them.
He remains faithful forever. Psalm 146:6

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

He is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn over all creation.
For everything was created by him,
in heaven and on earth,
the visible and the invisible,
whether thrones or dominions
or rulers or authorities —
all things have been created through him and for him.
He is before all things,
and by him all things hold together.
He is also the head of the body, the church;
he is the beginning,
the firstborn from the dead,
so that he might come to have
first place in everything.
For God was pleased to have
all his fullness dwell in him,
and through him to reconcile
everything to himself,
whether things on earth or things in heaven,
by making peace
through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:15-20

God is the loving Creator and sustainer of everything. He is eternal and unchanging in his goodness, wisdom, and power.

Have you ever stood in awe at the beauty of the world around you: the high, snow-capped mountains or the soothing streams; the shining sun; the bright moon; or the beauty of a butterfly?

Have you ever wondered how it all got here? Or, more importantly, why it’s all here?

The Bible says that God spoke and the heavens were created, and that he breathed the stars into existence. What a creative and powerful God! He created the heavens and the earth—all that you see, and all that you can’t. Did you know that he created it all to reflect his goodness and glory?

The Bible tells us in Psalm 19 and Psalm 146 that the beautiful, ordered creation around us says something about God. It tells us that God is powerful. It tells us that God is creative. It tells us that God is good. And it tells us that God is beautiful.

Psalm 19 says that the whole creation sings and shouts about how glorious God is! But, how often do you stop to enjoy it? Do you pause to appreciate its beauty and glory? Have you ever whispered a thank you to God for all that he created? 

The world is amazing, and it sings about God’s glory. Don’t miss it!

Today, make a list of things God has made that you love. Take some time just to thank him for what he has created. Thank him for caring for and sustaining you and the world around you.

Success! You're on the list.
