“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
We see day and night, the sun and moon, the seas and land, trees and animals, and never consider Who made them. We never consider our Creator who, with mere words, spoke the earth and everything in it into existence. God, our maker, formed us with His hands and breathed life into our nostrils. He placed everything on earth for our benefit: From trees that produce luscious fruits to the sun and moon that alert us to seasonal changes. God created us in His wonderful image and made us greater than the birds of the air and the fish in the sea. He wants us to be fruitful and multiply; He wants us to glorify His name. God knows our thoughts and our feelings and can count every hair on our head. When we ignore Him, when we deny His existence, when we spit in His face, He still loves us. God is our Father, and we are His children. The most powerful Being in the world cares about us; He cares about you, even when you desecrate His mighty name. The Creator of the heavens and the earth loves you—if only you would love Him too.
