If you are in a place where it is not spring yet or is experiencing floods or other natural disasters, please know that prayers go with you. Here is a little something for you and for us who may be experiencing a God-given spring renewal. The earth proclaims His beauty, mastery, and creativity! Spring holds the mystery of His design and His perfection in all things.
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities‑his eternal power and divine nature‑have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
Psalm 104:24, 30 How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures…. When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth.
Genesis 1:11‑12 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed‑bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
Psalm 104:12 – The birds of the air nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.
“In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”(Job 12:10)
“You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it. You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops. You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.” (Psalm 65:9-11)
And in His timing, He will restore all things to the perfection He intended!
“The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.” (Romans 8:19-21)
If the world is this beautiful now, subjected to curse and decay, what will it be like on the Day when He makes all things new? He is glorious and so is His creation…Happy Spring!
