Let’s get your family together and continue our journey through the Westminster Confession (for this devotion, you will need your Bible):
Let’s take a look at a quick tour through Mom and Dad’s schedule so you kids can see all that we do to make sure you have everything you need. Let’s go to each location in the house where we make your lunches, pack your bags, pay the bills so you can have a warm and dry house, work in the yard so you can have a peaceful environment, and not to mention all the cleaning and laundry that we go through constantly just to make sure you guys have a great home base! How often do you think about all that Mom and Dad do for you? Did you know that God takes care of creation like your Mom and Dad take care of you?
Let’s read Psalm 104:14-30 together. God cares for everything that he has created. He is GOOD. The earth shows his wonderful provision for ALL His creatures. This is why we praise and thank the Lord before our meals – because He sustains every breath and bite of every last being from the deepest corner of the Marianas Trench to the lush gardens in Freeport, Bahamas God gives everything that creation needs to survive. In fact, we find out in Colossians 1:17 that Jesus holds together all of creation in on ongoing sense. This is wonderful to think about. This is one aspect of what is called God’s providence.
And in this, like in the way that Mom and Dad provides for you, we see how God loves us. Even while He was holding them together by His good will and pleasure, Jesus was crucified by sinful men. See how deep the Father’s love is for us! Do you think that God can forget you? Do you think that He won’t hear your prayers? No! God cares for ALL His creation. We can trust in His goodness even now.
Let’s praise God for His loving care over all of creation!
- Watch and learn to sing God of Wonders together!
- Pray together thanking God for the way He provides for every need of creation!
