Creator of the Universe

I think God is AWESOME in all of His ways!

As I was driving to work this morning I noticed the beauty of my surroundings.

There was a light fog that hovered just above the road. The wind was gently blowing the trees, and instead of large amounts of the beautiful red and orange leaves falling, just one or two would swirl down gracefully one by one. It looked like the fog would reach out and try to catch the leaves. Then by the artistic nature of God, a single ray of sunshine filtered through the trees and shone on a fallen leaf.

It reminded me of my favorite name or reference to God - Creator of the Universe.

He is the Great Creator - the only Creator!

I am not a super smart person by any means but I do know that to create the universe required intelligent design, not just a big bang or evolution.

I read in Isaiah today:
"He sits enthroned above the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in..... Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."
Yet that same powerful, creative God ends chapter 40 of Isaiah with,
"Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

Wow! Even though He is powerful enough to create the ENTIRE universe, He is a personal God.

He is personal in His relationship with YOU!
If you haven't talked to Him lately, He misses YOU!
If you haven't desired time with Him, He longs for YOU!
If you shun His Holiness and Majesty, He knows.
He is not sitting in heaven waiting to bop you on the head when you mess up.
He is the perfect Father. His love is amazing and just. His grace is undeserving.

But above all, He LOVES YOU the way you are enough to give His Son for you to have eternal life.

He is the Creator of the Universe who loves YOU!

May you experience HIM in a personal way today! Seek Him and you will find Him!
