vs. 1 still cont’d. We must consider what God has given us to declare Who He is and the great lengths He has gone to show us what He is like.
-Space demonstrates Who God is-
Vastly Bigger and more powerful and terrible than we can comprehend.
-The Firmament, that which lies beneath what we call “Space” demonstrates what God is like.
His handiwork-Selah-His lovely and perfect Creation made lovingly for us. God focused on us!
He is Wisdom perfectly executed
He is all senses graciously satisfied.
He is all encompassing- The Great I Am!
“and it was good”
The planet is demonstrating God’s foreknowledge in eath’s and earth’s creature’s ability and need to change and adapt. God never has to say, “Ut-Oh!”, and He knows exactly how to execute His plans and purposes.
Earth is more than matter. Plants live and change- a seedling becomes a tree. Insects and animals live in complex societies. Humans are driven by issues of moral and emotional tennents: there is also a spiritual relm in motion.
The “natural world” is beautiful and good. All creatures understand “nice” and “pleasant”, “comfort” and “peace”. The opposite of these things occurs when there is a rift in the “balace of nature”, which goes against God’s original plan for Creation.
This is brought about by sin.
