As I sit and marvel at the sound spilling out of the speaker in my room, and the wonderful smell of Frankincense and Jade Lemon emitting from my diffuser. And as remember the sweet words of conversations with my sweet Savior, which I have participated in myself and have listened to a beautiful book called “The Shack”, and how the rain sounds bouncing off my car as I pull into the driveway. I can only exclaim,
HOW MARVELOUSLY BEAUTI
FUL ARE YOUR WAYS MY GOD! HOW WONDERFUL YOU ARE!
And then I reflect on this verse from the very beginning of time as God is fully satisfied in Himself and in the masterpiece He has just completed. And I realize something:
CREATION WAS NOT COMPLETE, NOR WAS IT MORE THAN GOOD UNTIL HUMANS WERE CREATED!
God, who had just created unspeakably vast galaxies, incredibly beautiful mountains and valleys and trees and creatures, was NOT SATISFIED until you and I came on the scene.
AND THEN, IT WAS COMPLETE.
ONLY THEN, IT WAS VERY GOOD.
I am humbled. Because this God is the same God who still reigns today. He does not change. Not in His habits, and certainly not in His pleasures! He STILL takes pleasure in ME!
Amazing grace indeed.
