“Then God said, ‘Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.’ So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms I the water, and every sort of bird-each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that is was good.”
I recently took a vacation to Clearwater, Florida. My husband and I stayed at a condo right on the Gulf of Mexico, and the majority of our time was spent on the beach. I was blown away by the number of different kinds of birds that we saw while sitting on the beach. What fascinated me the most was how very different they were. Some had bright yellow feet and others had bright orange beaks. I was speechless as I sat there and watched the birds, the powerful ocean waves roll in, and the beautiful sunset God painted.
Our Heavenly Father created each individual bird. He gave them differently colored beaks and feet for a specific purpose. He is in control of the mighty and powerful ocean. He tells the sun when to set and when to rise. He also created each one of US, with a specific purpose and with as much attention to detail as he did for every species of bird and fish! That is a humbling and life changing truth. God, our Heavenly Father, Creator of the Universe, loves US and He saw that is was good! WOW!
Lord, I pray that today we remember who created us. I pray that we remember that You create beautiful, powerful, and amazing things! Thank you, Lord, for creating us with a unique vision and purpose. Thank you, for trusting us to be Your hands and feet on this Earth, and for equipping us with our strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for creating such amazing reminders of Your greatness for us to enjoy.
