In The Beginning the Lord Created the Heavens and the Earth
I spent the greater part of last week on the coast of Texas. Our room was located at the corner of a peninsula and had an amazing view of the gulf. While down there I also visited Johnson Space Center for the first time in almost 30 years. Everything I saw was moving and beautiful.
I spent quite a bit of time staring out across the water and knowing I was only seeing the surface. I spent a great amount of time at the Space Center thinking the same thing. As humans, we have only explored up to our own moon, and even our the oceans here have creatures rarely seen and yet to be discovered.
It moved me to learn that the crew of Apollo 8, after orbiting the moon and seeing the Earth come into view began to quote Genesis 1:1-10.
The expanse of creation makes me feel both small and significant. God delights when we delight in His creation, and His hands are deep within every part. We will not reach the end of what is to be discovered; He has already created well beyond what we can see.
Spend time this week marveling at what He has created for His and our pleasure. Be awed by His presence in the things He created.
