Celebrating God our Creator
Have you taken time to thank God for His awesome work of creating the universe? In His sovereignty, He created the Heavens and Earth when it was without form. The Bible records in Genesis 1:2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
God then gave man dominion over everything He had created. Genesis 1:26b, And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
We have a grand responsibility to take care of the earth we live in. We can do this by keeping the environment clean, avoid pollution, saving electricity and water, planting trees, recycling just to mention a few.
Above all let us celebrate God for creating us and the earth and be thankful for His marvelous work. Here are some verses that will help us ponder on God as the creator.
