Amazing Creation - Amazing God

“And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.” (Genesis 1:24)

Did you ever see a pelican dive bomb into the ocean face first and come up with a fish? What’s amazing is that no one had to teach them how to fish that way—they do it naturally because they’re pelicans. Now think about spiders. They don’t dive bomb to catch fish. Instead they do what spiders naturally do—they spin webs to catch flies and other insects. Dolphins, by contrast use sophisticated echo location—impressive, but just a natural part of being a dolphin.

We could site thousands of other examples of unique attributes among different species in the plant and animal kingdoms. Some would say these are merely the evolutionary result of natural selection. But the Bible says that God intentionally designed our world’s great diversity of species—both plants and animals—each according to their own kinds.

“Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so” (Genesis 1:11).

“And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” So, God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind” (Genesis 1:20-21).

“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (Genesis 1:26). And that’s the distinguishing characteristic of human beings—we alone are made in God’s image!

Question: Are you amazed at the awesome diversity of God’s creation?

Challenge: Read Genesis 1

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your awesome creation for making us in your image that we might know you.
