"You are worthy our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being." Revelation 4:11
The vastness of God's creation was emphasized the other night as my husband and I watched an Imax movie "The Deep" about the ocean and its' creatures. As we watched the film with seas of translucent jelly fish, brightly colored coral, many legged brightly colored sea stars, fantastic Hermissenda looking remarkably like an underwater slug but with beautifully colored soft spines on their backs, gigantic and gentle Blue whales which are the largest known mammal alive, it became overwhelmingly amazing to me to think that it was all created by one being. I was in awe!
How could anyone think of all these creatures? How could He breathe them into being? How could He have even thought of how all their bodies could function? It is truly unfathomable by my tiny brain, the detail that each organism required in being created. The imagination that was involved to bring so many creatures to life. It is truly amazing!
It also definitely brings to light the true meaning behind this verse today. He is WORTHY of our praise. He created "all things" and we, and everything around us, only exist because it is His will. We "have our being" because that is His will. In Revelation 4, everyone in heaven and on earth will praise and honor our heavenly Father, because he created everything. He is our God, our Father, the Alpha and Omega, the great I Am.
I reverently praise and worship Him.
In His Grace...
