Episode ThemeCreation Enjoying: Be still and know that I am God.
But we live by faith, not by what we see.
What’s your favorite place in nature? Perhaps you like sitting on the beach beside a Great Lake or an ocean. Maybe you like to walk along a forest path and look and listen for wildlife. Maybe a pond is your favorite spot to catch glimpse of frogs, fish, birds and turtles. Maybe you like the solitude of the desert and enjoy a good hike into the mountains. Some readers here like a snowy winter walk as huge flakes fall muffling the sounds of the evening.
All of these scenes are beautiful and show that God is the God of all things. He created the Great Lake, the forest path, the pond life, the desert, the mountain and huge snowy flakes. And he created you and me. And when you think of that snow flake, sand grain or water drop, think about how each one is a masterpiece. And of course, we can’t count all those things. Now think about all the living things that God has created. They are all amazing. Each one is special.
God reveals Himself to us in two ways. In the Bible, God tells the story of His rescue plan for His people. He shows the Old Promise to send a messiah. He shows the New Promise that Jesus will come again. As we read, we learn what God is like and find lots of words that describe God. Tell your family right now some words that describe God. God also reveals Himself in His creation. When we see those huge snowflakes, that wonderful butterfly or the majesty of the blue whale, we learn more and more about who God is and how God cares for our creation. So take a walk or go on a bike ride today, and find a place and be still. “Be still and know that I am God,” says the creator of all things.
