My Creator, Elohim

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1

"Men must worship something; if they do not worship an unseen Being who loves and cares for them, they will worship the works of their own hands; they will secretly bow down to the things that they see, and hear and taste and smell; these will be there Lords and masters."
~ Fredrick Denison Maurice

How often we limit the limitless God with our own perceived limitations. We project on Him our psychological dogma and our preoccupation with our own expectations. We imagine Him to be so small and we fail to admit it. I wonder how disappointed He is with the lack of faith in His name. Elohim - Mighty Creator. Maybe we should ask Him to help us to see Him as He truly is: He is the Creator of everything ! Today, and every day, I am thankful for My Creator God. The One who calls himself the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. His Word spoke the universe into existence and by His hand every single thing came into being. His breath brought life. His Spirit still moves. He knits each one together in the womb. In Him we live and move and have our being.
 I acknowledge Him as the Mighty Creator and praise Him who sits on the throne.

When I look at the natural creation all around me it causes me to stand in awe of Him who created everything. It causes me to praise and worship the One, True, Living God who is the Author of Salvation, Creation and Truth.
He is the Giver of Life and the One who takes Life.
He is the Final Judge.

I do not worship the created.
I worship the Creator.

Today I am thankful for the God who has revealed Himself clearly in scripture as the One who created all.

If I never speak or write another word
His name will still be praised
forever!
Jesus said that if His disciples kept quiet,
the stones would cry out!
Perhaps, this is why I love the stones so much on my beach walks,
they are reminders of Him...literally!
His very own Creation will praise Him if those who were created to
 praise Him shut their mouths to praising Him!

Well, I am not shutting my mouth.
Shocked, aren't you?

 How many are your works, O LORD!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
Psalm 104:24

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.
Genesis 1:31

For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;
all things were created by him and for him.
Colossians 1:16

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.
Romans 1:20

    Sometimes God slows us down so we can see His handiwork around us. Every day, Hubby and I take a drive through a certain section of town and notice the change of the color of the foilage on the trees.
