God Saw That It Was Good

As God created  all things  in creation,  at the end  of each day,

God saw  that it was good.     Genesis 1:10

Then,  at the end  of six days  of creating,  Genesis 1:31 records,

God saw all  that He had made,  and behold,  it was very good.

That’s something  to remember.     And then,  we recall  how Adam and Eve fell  into sin  ( Genesis 3 ).     But,  in God’s judgment  He also promised a Savior from sin.     That is love and mercy.     And that is something  to always remember.

For this reason  —  for God’s love  and mercy  that is often given  in so many ways  in our personal lives  —  King David sang  in Psalm 34:1,

I will bless  the LORD  at all times;
His praise  shall continually be  in my mouth.

God saved David  in many dire situations  —  and David praised Him  for that.     But,  first of all,  David was thankful  for God’s eternal salvation,  that would come  in our Savior,  Christ Jesus.     That is why he blessed  “the LORD  at all times”  —  just as we should.

God’s immediate plan  of salvation  for all mankind  in the Garden  of Eden  “was very good”  —  just as all  of creation  was “very good”.     His plan  of salvation  is perfect  in every way.     It couldn’t be better.     It’s complete  and free  to all  who trust  in the eternal word  of God.     Realizing  the goodness  and truth  of that,  we should all say  with David,  “I will bless  the LORD  at all times;  His praise  shall continually be  in my mouth.”

As we remember  the power  of God’s creative love  and mercy  in sending the Christ child  into our lives,  let us always  “bless the LORD  at all times”.

In the awesome wonder  of our Savior,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  thank You  for creating  in us clean hearts  and right spirits,  to serve You  with our whole lives.”

Love,
Margaret
