God, Architect of an Excellent Universe

When we see the beauty of nature around us, we should feel an inner compulsion to praise God for His wonderful works. Not only has He created a magnificent universe, He has also created a universe that supplies us with our needs.

God provides for His creation with water.

God’s power is seen as He sends the streams and rivers to water this planet and to provide life for the plants, the animals, and for us humans.
Standing at the shore, the smooth but firm sand beneath my feet, the waves lapping around my toes softly, but breaking upon the rocks down the shore, the mighty ocean stretching into the horizon where the blue of its waters meets with the blue of the sky above – my God is the Maker of this mighty ocean with its white caps, unexplored depths, and many forms of life.
God’s gracious and powerful provision for us – and for the animal life around us – in the water that He sends should cause us to praise Him for the bounteous goodness He pours out on us.

God provides for His creation with vegetation.

As C. H. Spurgeon says, “Divine power is as truly and as worthily put forth in the feeding of beasts as in the nurturing of man; watch but a blade of grass to with a devout eye and you may see God at work within it.”
God has created the plants around us for our enjoyment and also for our nourishment. He has created the trees to be the habitats of the birds. How wonderful is His creation! How gorgeous the new-born world must have been with its vibrant colors – the living green of the grass and leaves, the bright colors of the flowers, the delicate white of the blossoms – and the songs of many birds rising in the morning air to sing their Maker’s praise.

God provides for His creation in the seasons.

The habits and life patterns of the animals is based upon the conditions that God places upon them.
God created day and night and the seasons thereof. He appointed the time to sleep and the time to wake and work. The things that are in our lives are appointed by God. They are the things that we need at the present moment.
