He Deserves It
Psalm 104:24 NLT
O Lord, what a variety of things you have made!
In wisdom you have made them all.
The earth is full of your creatures.
I love passages of scripture that reveal things about God’s character. He loves variety! There isn’t just one land animal, one sea creature and one bug. He not only made many different things, but each thing is extremely complex in design too. The same God who made plants, made zebras and humans. No other company can do that; they have to contract work out to other sources. Doctors have to specialize in one area, and professors have one thesis. Humans cannot produce variety like God at all.
So what does that mean? For me, this morning, God’s variety in Creation is reminding me of his superiority. I am not his peer. I should not treat God with casualness. He doesn’t need my advice or my permission. In wisdom he has made them all. All my knowledge, wisdom, common sense and education doesn’t even come close. I worship and praise him, serve, trust & believe him because he deserves it!
Romans 1:19-20 NIV
What may be known about God is plain to (me), because God has made it plain to (me). For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Psalm 145:3 NIV
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
I love to obey you and trust you because your wisdom is obvious, and I see it with my own eyes in Creation. Thank you for Creation that proves I’m not a sucker who believes in fairy tales. I believe in the One, True, Living God. Thank you for loving variety and complexity not only for my benefit but also for just pure enjoyment. Amen.
