Devotional – We Serve an Awesome God!

How God Created the World

Have you ever wondered about the way God created the world? I know I have. And I guess my question is why did God create us(Adam and Eve) last?

In Genesis (the beginning), chapter one tells us how the world was created:

God made light – there was only darkness before, not only was light created but He separated it from the darkness. That was our first day and night in history.
God made the heaven, the earth and the seas – He made all the dry land and all the waters collected into their specific places.

God made all the vegetation – all the plants, trees, grass, shrubs, fruit vines were created. Not only did the flora came into being but they were also created to bring forth seed after their own kind to continue to flourish over the earth.

God created the sun, moon and stars – the lights that tell us when it’s day and night. It signals seasons and times, reminding and calling forth times and seasons.

God created the creatures of the sea and the air– God filled the seas with all sorts of creative life, and the air with every type of bird.

God created all the earthly creatures – livestock, creeping and crawling creatures, every type of land creature.

The best for last

What God did was very logical and chronological. Without the previous, the other would not survive.

So then He created man. He didn’t just save the best for last, but He needed to provide for man prior to being created.  Man was the only one of God’s creation created in God’s image and likeness.

When God created everything that He looked upon was fitting, pleasant and He approved it (verses 4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25 and 31). God approved of the entire of creation completely. There was not one thing that was made that was not approved.

All in preparation for mankind

In the same way, God created everything in preparation for man, so that when man was created, he could operate and function in a full and complete way. So too the journey of our lives. Many times we wonder why we have to go through trials and tribulations.

It is simply for this purpose. It is to prepare us for the next step and the next and the next, until we reach to the place where God wants us to be. Along the way, we come to smaller places God wants us to reach before our ultimate place in this world.

When we reach those places and look back then we understand why God asked us to walk that way. If we didn’t go through the little stuff , we would not be prepared for the big stuff. Each little step causes our faith and our love for God to grow.

Little baby steps

God knows we are human and frail. He made us. There is nothing about us that He doesn’t know. So He gives us little steps to take. And suddenly, when you look back, you are such a long way from when you started. It is then we can appreciate all the little steps.

James 1: 2-4 says: Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfectly and fully developed, lacking in nothing.

So the next time you face a small step of faith and don’t seem to understand why, remember that God sees the big picture. And, He is kind enough to allow us to take baby steps to our destinations.

May God’s patient understanding flood your spirits as you open up your heart to His will and purpose, Amen.
