God’s Story: Creation
This video is so creative and easy to understand: The use of hand drawing quickly shows us God’s creation of the heavens and earth and all things. We can see the supreme authority of God’s word from the fact that He used words to create all things. God speaks, and it will be accomplished; He commands, and it will stand fast. Everything is accomplished because of His words. There are unknown mysteries hidden behind the sentence that is repeatedly emphasized: “and God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:21).
God’s word says, “‘God saw that it was good’? What does it symbolize? It means that God had the power and wisdom to accomplish that which He had planned and prescribed, to accomplish the goals that He had set out to accomplish. When God had completed each task, did He feel regret? The answer is still that ‘God saw that it was good.’ In other words, not only did He feel no regret, but was instead satisfied. What does it mean that He felt no regret? It means that God’s plan is perfect, that His power and wisdom are perfect, and that it is only by His authority that such perfection can be accomplished.” “When God saw that all that He had done and achieved was good, everything made by God was set by His words, which is to say that, when ‘God saw that it was good,’ all that He had made assumed a permanent form, was classed according to type, and was given a fixed position, purpose, and function, once and for all eternity. Moreover, their role among all things, and the journey that they must take during God’s management of all things, had already been ordained by God, and were immutable. This was the heavenly law given by the Creator to all things.”
After reading God’s word, I finally understood the real meaning of this sentence. Whatever God made is the most perfect. Therefore, I believe even more that the life trajectory God has prepared for everyone is the best and most suitable. Even though we may meet something unpleasant or difficult in our journey of life, we should believe that we can overcome all the hardships if we rely on God. Meanwhile, It reminds me of the’ prophecy: “I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come” (John 16:12-13). That is to say, when the Lord Jesus comes again, He still has things to say to us. These words must be very important. We are looking forward to welcoming the of the Lord soon, continuing to listen to the Lord’s word and follow the Lord’s footsteps.
