Images of Creation

To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:6-7)

  • When God revealed Himself to Job, He wisely used the images of creation. Job responded with repentance and an acknowledgement of the greatness and glory of God. Job repented for questioning God.

  • God's ways are always higher than our ways. And He always has a purpose for everything that is happening. Instead of questioning Him, let us accept His Sovereignty and the execution of His plan. Let us accept His will for us and believe He will keep His promises to us.

  • “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork” (Ps. 19:1). When we behold the wonders of creation, the flowers that bloom, the raindrops as they fall; the spacious sky and life's perpetuation, we cannot doubt that God controls it all. Let us praise God who made such beauty for us to enjoy! As we behold the radiant sun by day or the star-studded sky at night, let us be in awe and worship the Creator.

  • The beauty of creation always gives us reasons to sing God’s praise.
