Psalm 148:5-13; Job 12:7-10; Job 38; Isaiah 42:5; Acts 4:24
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
God’s creation of the world is an intricate, yet marvelous one. He created everything by speaking it into being, until He created mankind. Before He created man though, He spoke into being the sea creatures and the birds. All that lives in the sea and in the air was created on the fifth day by God’s Word. On the sixth day, He created mankind, forming him with His hands from the dust of the ground. He breathed life into the man and woman. God also created all of the animals that are on the earth. He is the Creator of all things.
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.
