Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day.
–Genesis 1:31 NLT
God created the world in six days. At the end of each day, He said, “It is good,” but when He created humans, He said, “It is very good.” You are created in His own image. His plan was perfect. Nothing is done or created by chance. Everything you observe, experience, and appreciate should remind you of God’s love. As Psalm 148:5 (NIV) says, “Let them praise the name of the Lord, for at his command they were created.”
God delights in you. You are the apple of His eye. Don’t dwell on the wrong in the world, dwell in His presence—His glory. He sent His Son to redeem His children. So when you see the sun rise and set each day, praise Him for every moment you are blessed to enjoy. As Psalm 19:1 (NIV) says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” You have so much to be thankful for.
- Ask the Lord to open your eyes to the beauty of His creation. Don’t take the beauty surrounding you for granted.
- You are made in His image and He delights in you. Thank God for His awesome love each day.
