God's creation

On Wednesday night our Bible study was on Genesis 1, where we read about God creating the heavens and the earth. On the way home, the sky was exploding into such a brilliant riot of color, I could hardly take it in. I've carried on a million times before about the sunsets in this valley, but I really feel like this was the most breathtaking display I've ever seen. (I wish you could have seen it. Words and pictures can't possibly do justice to what was happening up there.)

Even more awe-inspiring is that 'through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God.' (Hebrews 11:3) He spoke all that we see around us into existence; His words are that powerful. I can't fully comprehend that kind of power; my feeble mind isn't able. But I'm so thankful to have witnessed such a beautiful, majestic example of God's creation right after reading about it all happening, and so thankful that what He has done is able to affect my (often hard, often stubborn) human heart.

Genesis 1:14-15 And God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
Genesis 1:17-18 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
