God is Active in the Creation

In making the universe

Nehemiah 9:6

6You alone are the Lord;

You have made heaven,

The heaven of heavens, with all their host,

The earth and everything on it,

The seas and all that is in them,

And You preserve them all.

The host of heaven worships You.

 

Genesis 1:1, 31; 2:2; 5:1-2

1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

1:31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

2:2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.

5:1 This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.

 

Psalm 102:25

25Of old You laid the foundation of the earth,

And the heavens are the work of Your hands.

 

Amos 4:13

13For behold,

He who forms mountains,

And creates the wind,

Who declares to man what his thought is,

And makes the morning darkness,

Who treads the high places of the earth—

The Lord God of hosts is His name.

 

Acts 17:24

24 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.

 

Acts 4:11

11 You are worthy, O Lord,

To receive glory and honor and power;

For You created all things,

And by Your will they exist and were created.”

 

In sustaining the created order

Psalm 103:19

19 The Lord has established His throne in heaven,

And His kingdom rules over all.

 

Psalm 104:17:107:33-35

104:10He sends the springs into the valleys;

They flow among the hills.

11They give drink to every beast of the field;

The wild donkeys quench their thirst.

12By them the birds of the heavens have their home;

They sing among the branches.

13He waters the hills from His upper chambers;

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of Your works.

14He causes the grass to grow for the cattle,

And vegetation for the service of man,

That he may bring forth food from the earth,

15And wine that makes glad the heart of man,

Oil to make his face shine,

And bread which strengthens man’s heart.

16The trees of the Lord are full of sap,

The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,

17Where the birds make their nests;

The stork has her home in the fir trees.

 

107:33He turns rivers into a wilderness,

And the watersprings into dry ground;

34A fruitful land into barrenness,

For the wickedness of those who dwell in it.

35He turns a wilderness into pools of water,

And dry land into watersprings.

 

Matthew 6:28-30

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

 

Acts 14:17

17 Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.”

 

Ephesians 1:11-12

11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

 

Colossians 1:16-17

16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

 

In bringing about changes in the weather

Job 37:10; 38:22-30, 34:35

37:10By the breath of God ice is given,

And the broad waters are frozen.

 

38:34“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,

That an abundance of water may cover you?

35Can you send out lightnings, that they may go,

And say to you, ‘Here we are!’?

 

Psalm 107:25; 147:8

107:25For He commands and raises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up the waves of the sea.

 

147:8 Who covers the heavens with clouds,

Who prepares rain for the earth,

Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.

 

Matthew 5:45

45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

 

Acts 14:17

17 Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.”

 

In the stars and other heavenly bodies

Job 38:31-33

31“Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades,

Or loose the belt of Orion?

32Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season?

Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs?

33Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?

Can you set their dominion over the earth?

 

Psalm 104:19; 147:4

104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons;

The sun knows its going down.

 

147:4He counts the number of the stars;

He calls them all by name.

 

Isaiah 40:26

26Lift up your eyes on high,

And see who has created these things,

Who brings out their host by number;

He calls them all by name,

By the greatness of His might

And the strength of His power;

Not one is missing.

 

James 1:17

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

 

In the animal creation

Job 39:1-30; 40:15-24; 41:1-11

39:1 “Do you know the time when the wild mountain goats bear young?

Or can you mark when the deer gives birth?

2Can you number the months that they fulfill?

Or do you know the time when they bear young?

3They bow down,

They bring forth their young,

They deliver their offspring.

4Their young ones are healthy,

They grow strong with grain;

They depart and do not return to them.

5“Who set the wild donkey free?

Who loosed the bonds of the onager,

6Whose home I have made the wilderness,

And the barren land his dwelling?

7He scorns the tumult of the city;

He does not heed the shouts of the driver.

8The range of the mountains is his pasture,

And he searches after every green thing.

9“Will the wild ox be willing to serve you?

Will he bed by your manger?

10Can you bind the wild ox in the furrow with ropes?

Or will he plow the valleys behind you?

11Will you trust him because his strength is great?

Or will you leave your labor to him?

12Will you trust him to bring home your grain,

And gather it to your threshing floor?

13“The wings of the ostrich wave proudly,

But are her wings and pinions like the kindly stork’s?

14For she leaves her eggs on the ground,

And warms them in the dust;

15She forgets that a foot may crush them,

Or that a wild beast may break them.

16She treats her young harshly, as though they were not hers;

Her labor is in vain, without concern,

17Because God deprived her of wisdom,

And did not endow her with understanding.

18When she lifts herself on high,

She scorns the horse and its rider.

19“Have you given the horse strength?

Have you clothed his neck with thunder?

20Can you frighten him like a locust?

His majestic snorting strikes terror.

21He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength;

He gallops into the clash of arms.

22He mocks at fear, and is not frightened;

Nor does he turn back from the sword.

23The quiver rattles against him,

The glittering spear and javelin.

24He devours the distance with fierceness and rage;

Nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded.

25At the blast of the trumpet he says, ‘Aha!’

He smells the battle from afar,

The thunder of captains and shouting.

26“Does the hawk fly by your wisdom,

And spread its wings toward the south?

27Does the eagle mount up at your command,

And make its nest on high?

28On the rock it dwells and resides,

On the crag of the rock and the stronghold.

29From there it spies out the prey;

Its eyes observe from afar.

30Its young ones suck up blood;

And where the slain are, there it is.”

 

40:15“Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you;

He eats grass like an ox.

16See now, his strength is in his hips,

And his power is in his stomach muscles.

17He moves his tail like a cedar;

The sinews of his thighs are tightly knit.

18His bones are like beams of bronze,

His ribs like bars of iron.

19He is the first of the ways of God;

Only He who made him can bring near His sword.

20Surely the mountains yield food for him,

And all the beasts of the field play there.

21He lies under the lotus trees,

In a covert of reeds and marsh.

22The lotus trees cover him with their shade;

The willows by the brook surround him.

23Indeed the river may rage,

Yet he is not disturbed;

He is confident, though the Jordan gushes into his mouth,

24Though he takes it in his eyes,

Or one pierces his nose with a snare.

 

41:1 “Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook,

Or snare his tongue with a line which you lower?

2Can you put a reed through his nose,

Or pierce his jaw with a hook?

3Will he make many supplications to you?

Will he speak softly to you?

4Will he make a covenant with you?

Will you take him as a servant forever?

5Will you play with him as with a bird,

Or will you leash him for your maidens?

6Will your companions make a banquet of him?

Will they apportion him among the merchants?

7Can you fill his skin with harpoons,

Or his head with fishing spears?

8Lay your hand on him;

Remember the battle—

Never do it again!

9Indeed, any hope of overcoming him is false;

Shall one not be overwhelmed at the sight of him?

10No one is so fierce that he would dare stir him up.

Who then is able to stand against Me?

11Who has preceded Me, that I should pay him?

Everything under heaven is Mine.

 

Psalm 104:20-27; 147:9

104:20You make darkness, and it is night,

In which all the beasts of the forest creep about.

21The young lions roar after their prey,

And seek their food from God.

22When the sun rises, they gather together

And lie down in their dens.

23Man goes out to his work

And to his labor until the evening.

24O Lord, how manifold are Your works!

In wisdom You have made them all.

The earth is full of Your possessions—

25This great and wide sea,

In which are innumerable teeming things,

Living things both small and great.

26There the ships sail about;

There is that Leviathan

Which You have made to play there.

27These all wait for You,

That You may give them their food in due season.

 

147:9He gives to the beast its food,

And to the young ravens that cry.

 

Matthew 10:29

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.

 

Luke 12:6

“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God.

 

God is active in creation in the sense that He gave His instructions to Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Jesus with the help of the Holy Spirit created everything that was created and will be created and re-created. God because He is Holy cannot be around sin or sinners and therefore had to give instructions and oversee the things He required of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.

  

Prayer:  Father in heaven, hallowed is Thy Name.  I praise You for Your Son and the Holy Spirit. I praise You for Your caring, Your loving kindness, and Your generosity. Only Your graciousness and love could forgive the sins of mankind and still allow him to become a Son or daughter of Yours. Please bless those who have read this article for they too seek Your righteous truth, love, wisdom and understanding. I pray that they will come to realize that their existence is a treasure of grace and love which You have for them.

May God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights, our safety nets and our inspiration for loving happiness in all of Your kingdom. Father into your hands I commend my spirit. Not my will, but yours be done. Please come Lord Jesus.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit,

Amen.
