God’s creation tells a story. It’s a story of majesty, splendor, beauty, and greatness. But the story creation tells isn’t about itself—it is about the Creator. As majestic and beautiful as creation is, God the Creator is even more so, always greater than His creation. This is the story creation whispers, and sometimes shouts, to us every day.
Think about what you believe to be the most beautiful or amazing part of creation, something that makes your jaw drop. What do you envision? Perhaps a towering mountain range or a white sandy beach. Maybe a field of flowers or a leopard in mid-stride. Whatever you picture, as beautiful and glorious as it is, it pales in comparison to God’s original creation before the fall. Even now, stained by the curse of sin, creation continues to declare the glory of God! That’s how glorious He is.
Creation was designed to point us to the greatness of God and to elicit worship toward Him in our hearts and lives. That is the story creation tells.
What are some parts of creation that make you marvel the most? What do they tell you about God?
