|Today’s Scripture: And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness… Genesis 1:25-26a|
|In one of my recent series, Origins, we looked at day six of creation and were astounded as we considered everything the Lord has made. According to today’s research, there are over 7 million species of land animals and 2 million insect species alive at this moment in time. These numbers are astounding, but what is even more incredible is the amount of detail that our Creator put into each one. For example:
Why am I referencing all these creatures today? I want you to consider how the same God that made them, made you with even more detail, even more care, and far more purpose. The next time you are tempted to doubt His attention to detail in your life, consider everything He has made. He has not left you to fend for yourself. He has got your life completely under control. Every detail of how He made you serves a greater purpose than you can see. Every life situation you have gone through has been to mold you into what He needs you to be. Be confident today that you serve a God of details.
