Do You Know the God Who Laid, Set and Divided the Earth, Sky and Water?

“Wait, one more thing!” series Post 8

“My son…
By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.”

Proverbs 3:19, 20

My beloved child,

Do you know the God who laid, set and divided the earth, sky and water? If you do- if you really do- knowing Him will be the basis for your entire life. Stop and consider for a minute…

He laid the earth’s foundations. Out of nothing, He commanded into existence all that you set your feet upon. Do you know this with every fiber of your being?

He set the sky in place; He hung the stars. He placed the planets and pressed them into harmonious revolution. He layered the atmosphere, formulating it perfectly to sustain your life. Do you know this with every breath you breathe?

He divided the water and cycled it to benefit all of creation. Condensation, precipitation, evaporation – flawless balance in rotation. Beauty in constant motion, seen in all kinds of weather and landscape. Do you know this with every clouded sunset and waterfall that you enjoy?

Do you know the God who laid, set and divided the earth, sky and water? If you do- if you really do- you know that His wisdom, understanding and knowledge are infinite. There is nothing that confuses Him, nothing that can best Him. You can base your entire life on God because you know Him.

You are truly and deeply cared for.
