I was reminded of creation today as I was packing and getting together last minute things. I was starting to do a mini countdown in my mind and including today, I have 6 days until I leave for departure. I realize the parallel is quite elusive, but it just felt significant for a moment. I never want to lose the fascination and complete awe and wonder of God creating man in His image. My friend the other day started talking about the awe and wonder of God and how truly marvelous and majestic our God is. It is this sort of truth and revelation that inspires me to go to the nations. That they may know and experience His wonder and awesomeness.
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
very good, very good….VERY GOOD.Advertisements
