Bible Story:

Exodus 14

Everything that exists does so under God’s power and control. All of the plants, vegetation, wind, rain, and everything else are under God’s control. God is more powerful than anything and He rules over all things. Nature, the heavens, earth, and everything in them show us God’s greatness as the Creator and mighty God.



God created everything. Everything we see, hear, feel, taste, and that exists was created by Him. Not only did He create everything, but He created everything perfectly, including humanity. He created mankind in His very image and likeness to reflect His worth. All of creation was made just like He wanted and designed it to be. To His delight, God looked at everything He made and declared that it was good. All creation exists for God, is good, and was created to bring Him glory.
