Day 29 | In The World – Definition

Read Genesis 1

Imagine for a moment you are walking in the park, and you stop to look up. You see the bright blue sky and rays of light piercing through the branches of the trees above. Crouching down, you pick up a leaf and observe the ants passing you on the sidewalk. Do you realize how undoubtedly amazing this is? The sky, the ground, and the creatures that run along in it were all created by a word from our Heavenly Father. How inconceivable this truth is to our human minds! God created everything, every single thing. We have taken those things and created with them within His framework, but there is nothing we can create outside of what God has created. We see the beauty and intentionality of the world God created in Genesis 1.

This world was created to amaze us. Sometimes we forget just how awe-inspiring this life is because we simply live within our own idea of existence. Genesis 1:28–30 not only invites us to see the goodness of what God has given us but it also invites us to be part of creation! Just as Christ has called us to be part of the creation process, He calls us to share the gospel with all those we encounter.

Romans 1:20 says, “For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse.” God’s power and divine nature are truly on display if we stop and take a moment to acknowledge His goodness in creating the world, which He created for us to enjoy and live within. We serve a God who designed good things for us to enjoy and to point others to Him in the process.

Pray for eyes to see the goodness in creation and to understand God’s love for His creation shown through His Son, Christ Jesus.
