Dealing with universal creation
CAROLINE L. BELTRAN, Baguio City

In Genesis 1:1, we read: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth.” This is not the only place in the Bible where we read about creation. The remarkable work of God’s creation is not a one-passage phenomenon according to one writer.

A phenomenon is a directly observable fact or event. It is something visible such as appearance, action, change, or occurrence of any kind.

Psalm 19:1 says: “The heavens declare the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship.” “You placed the world on its foundations so it would never be moved” is also stated in Psalm 104:5.

In the Scripture are reminders that God molded our world. He reminds us how important it is to believe that the universe and everything in it came though the masterful work of His mighty hand.

We need those reminders. Otherwise, we could easily be influenced by the teachings heard continually from educators who hold to a view of origins that rule out God. However, that is not the primary reason to explore what God’s word says about creation. To explore is to search through and examine closely for purposes of discovery. The main reason we need to acknowledge God’s role in bringing everything into existence is so that we give Him praise. Praise is to glorify or say good things about our Creator.

Look around. Look in the Bible. Can you see the hand of Almighty God? Then praise Him for His powerful creative work.

This reminds me of a poem we recited in elementary: “All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small; all things wise and wonderful – the Lord God made them all.”

Indeed, the greatness of our God is seen in sky and sea, and forest green. All living creatures great and small reveal our God who made them all.

From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, the Lord’s name is to be praised for all the great things He has done.
