A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, November 8

Genesis 1:1


In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.


This is unsurpassed creativity- if we ever need to wonder where our creativity comes from! The complexity of God's creation surpasses our understanding. And the beauty stops us in our tracks. Every year thousands of people come up to New England to look at the Fall foliage. Cruises run daily up the western Canadian border to view the icebergs and wildlife. And the complexity is mind-boggling. Gravity, photosynthesis, healing of a broken bone; all are mysterious, and come from the hand of God. Much of God's creation leaves the most brilliant minds scratching their heads. God made me, too. And he gave me the gift of a creative mind. I can only say thank you, and be careful not to waste or ignore this gift.


Holy Lord, your creativity is astounding! I am so thankful for the mind you have given me, and the abilities you give to all of your human creation. I pray that our creative minds can focus on good and positive solutions, comfort, healing and beauty. Amen

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.


And what a creation it is! And most important, he did not stop that day. Each day after the first he created even more wonders. The order of these creations were very important—for example, he did not create plants before there was the light they needed to grow. I am always amazed at that fact. As a lover of the natural world, I give thanks to my creator for the wonders he has done.


Prayer: Gracious God, Thank you for this glorious world we inhabit. Amen

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth

And now we begin. Why did God create this world. For his glory, not out of need. He was not lonely. God created the universe to glorify him so that his people might know him, and love him. He is glorious his power and might are beyond human understanding. We all know this - every time we see a beautiful sunset and feel a stirring within our hearts, it is because that glorious sunset reveals a glorious God .it’s not just the skies above that declare his glory, it’s all creation from the smallest insect to the largest of all animals.

Genesis 1:1 This is creativity that leaves one speechless. The awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world would seem to be enough to open the human mind to belief in a Creator, a prime mover of the universe. In that we in turn are created in the image of this Creator, some measure of this creativity has been bequeathed to us. We honor God when we discover and share our creative gifts with others. These gifts, as varied as are leaves, flowers and other miracles of God’s creation, have a purpose that it is our mission to find.


Prayer - Creator God, I give praise and thanks for the colors I see out my window this morning, the taste of butter on…
