GOD TAKES CARE OF HIS CREATION


Psalm 65:9-10 says, "You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The river of God has plenty of water; it provides a bountiful harvest of grain, for you have ordered it so. You drench the plowed ground with rain, melting the clods and leveling the ridges. You soften the earth with showers and bless its abundant crops." God is the creator and the keeper of his creation. Although we experience natural disasters today, such as flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, heavy snow, and brush fires, God is still the caretaker of His creation. All the natural disasters that we are experiencing are a result of sin. Since Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, this world that we are living in was not the same anymore. Romans 8:22 says, "We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time." But despite the suffering that sin brought to this earth, the creation waits in eager expectations for our Lord Jesus to return to restore everything (Romans 8:18-25). But while we wait for the return of our Lord Jesus, He promised that He will take care of us.

 

God's blessings extend beyond providing rain for farmers. He also extends His comfort and aid to those who have been devastated by natural disasters. His compassion and care are not limited to the good times but are especially present in times of hardship and loss. He waters the plants and trees for our benefit, but He also restores when disasters hit. Our eternal hope is that all of God's creation will be restored when our Lord Jesus returns and reigns on this earth. Eventually, this earth that we are living in right now will be replaced by a new heaven and a new earth. And when that happens, we will never suffer from natural disasters again. We will enjoy living in a perfect world. 

 

Let us be encouraged that no matter what we face on this earth, God has our lives on his hands and He will take care of us forever. Let us be comforted by His sovereign power over His creation.

 

Questions for application: (Think through these questions carefully, meditate on them while answering them, and let the Spirit of God speak to you.) Who takes care of this earth? What can I learn from this devotion? How do I apply what I learned?

 

Write down all the worries you face today and lift them up to God.

 

Prayer:

Dear Father in Heaven, You are the one who takes care of your creation. You send rain to bless me, and you comfort and help me when I face natural disasters. Thank you for taking care of me. I pray for those who lost their homes because of natural disasters. May You comfort and restore their lives, and in the process, I pray that they will come to the saving faith in the Lord Jesus if they are not saved yet. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
