“God looked over everything He had made; it was good, so very good!”
Genesis 1:31, MSG
He Calls Us Good . . .
With a word, God made the world.
He simply uttered, “Let there be light.” And there was light.
Day and night.
Moon and stars.
Land and sky.
He spoke the universe into being. And it was good.
With each new word He breathed, the whole earth sprang to life. Creatures of every kind crawled and climbed. Wings took flight.
God’s very words — imbued with the power to create — showered the earth with new color. Yet, this was merely the overture of the symphony to come.
God spoke again and created man. Then He looked over everything He had made, His symphony of creation swelling with crescendo, and you know what He said? He said it is good, so very good.
That’s what He thinks of His creation. That’s what He thinks of you and me.
He calls us good, so very good.
Lord, help us to remember that we are Your workmanship.
Your love reaches beyond our imagination. Your sacrifice covers beyond our comprehension.
We are good because You called us so. We thank You for the light and life You bring.
For You are good. And You alone are worthy of our praise.
We celebrate God’s goodness even as we await the final encore of His symphony. For we know that one day Christ will return and restore — once and for all — all that is lost and broken. And until that day comes, He invites us to be with Him in sweet communion.
