The Detail of Creation

It certainly gave me a glimpse of how incredible our Creator is.

Psalm 8:1-9

Reference: “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,” Psalm‬ ‭8:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Explore: When our foster daughter was pregnant we found an app for our phones that gave us weekly updates of what was happening in her womb. I remember being amazed at the changes especially in the first trimester.

So much was happening and changing and doubling in size, and yet by week 10, the baby was still only the size of a grape. If I didn’t believe in God before then, it certainly gave me a glimpse of how incredible our Creator is.

Application: In Psalm 8 the writer also marvels at creation. And is then overwhelmed that God would even consider us humans when His majesty in all the rest of creation is so incredible.

This is the same God who cares for us today. He knows us and wants to connect with us in a deep and meaningful way.

As you continue to see the marvels of our world may it connect you into a deeper love and appreciation of our incredible Creator.

Prayer: Lord, the intricacy of creation shows Your attention to detail and precision in Your decisions. May we trust You also have our lives in Your hands. Amen.
