GOD THE CREATOR
God stretch’d out the north, o’er the empty place,
He hung the Earth on nothing, in space.
The glory of God, do the heavens declare,
The skies show His handiwork, with great flare.
Let us remember, His great works He has made,
From the highest mountain, to the marshy glade.
The sea is His work, and the dry land too,
He laid the Earth’s foundation, with wisdom true.
Springs run from the hills, to valleys below,
Giving drink to all the beasts, as fountains flow.
He waters the hills, from His chambers above,
The Earth is grateful, for His gracious love.
Our Creator God, ne’er grows weary,
Not like mere humans, like you and me.
His mighty hand, laid the foundation of Earth,
He lets us rule His Creation, of such great worth.
His many works, He made in wisdom and pow’r,
His enemies one day, shall shudder and cow’r.
He has made two places for souls to abide,
Heav’n or Hell; our choice, where we shall reside.

Where were we, when God created the world?
Where were we, when the Earth was unfurled?
Of its measurements, which of us know?
Or how deep is its foundation, below?
Where were we, when He made the stars above?
Where were we, when the angels sang out in love?
Where were we, when He shut the doors of the sea?
Where were we, when He made its boundaries?
Can we command, the morning to arrive?
Will our wisdom or power, help us survive?
Can we enter into, the ocean’s springs?
Or walk its depth, to know where it begins?
Have the gates of death, been open’d to you?
Does the shadow of death, give you a clue?
Can you perceive the Earth, O so v’ry wide?
Ev’n tho’ on its surface, you do reside.
Just where does the light dwell, or the darkness?
Where is the place, can you dare confess?
Have you enter’d into the snow’s treasure?
Or the hail, that He sends at His pleasure?
Just how does God part the dark and the light?
Why does He send the wind, in day or night?
How does He decide the route of thunder?
Is it His wisdom? or is it blunder?
Does rain have a father? who begets the dew?
What about the ice? and the hoary frost too?
Where were we, when the laws of heaven were set?
With God in charge of all, we need never fret.

God reserves storehouses of the snow and hail for times of trouble. God used hail to help Joshua and the Israelites win a battle (Joshua 10:11). Just as armies keep weapons in the armory, God has all the forces of nature in his control. Sometimes He uses them to confound those opposed to Him or His people. Job, nor we could even begin to know all of God’s resources.
God has all the forces of nature at His command and that He can unleash or restrain them at will. No one completely rain or snow, and no one can command them. Only God who created them has that power. God’s point is, that if Job or we can not explain such common events in nature, how could h/we possibly explain or question God? And since nature is beyond our comprehension, God’s moral purposes may not be what we imagine either.
The Lord questions Job and us, to convince him/us of his/our ignorance, and shame him for his folly in directing God. If we thus try ourselves, we shall soon be brought to own that what we know is nothing in comparison with what we know not. By the tender mercy of our God, the Day-spring from on high has visited us, to give light to those that sit in darkness, whose hearts are turned to it as clay to the seal, 2 Cor.4:6. God’s way in the government of the world is said to be in the sea; this means, that it is hid from us. Let us make sure that the gates of heaven shall be opened to us on the other side of death, and then we need not fear the opening of the gates of death. It is presumptuous for us, who perceive not the breadth of the earth, to dive into the depth of God’s counsels. We should neither in the brightest noon count upon perpetual day, nor in the darkest midnight despair of the return of the morning; and this applies to our inward as well as to our outward condition. What folly it is to strive against God! How much is it our interest to seek peace with him, and to keep in his love!
GOD’S WONDROUS CREATION
As the geese fly in their ‘V’ formation,
I think: “How wondrous is God’s Creation.”
God seems to give them a ‘built-in’ clock,
When the time is right; off flies the flock.
The bears seem to know when to hibernate,
They spend cold winters in a sleeping state.
God’s Creation truly is awesome indeed,
All His wild animals, to Him pay heed.
All vegetation knows when spring is nigh,
Trees bud; daffodils reach for the sky.
Tender green grass bursts from its dormant state,
Mankind these things, could never duplicate.
God grants us each day, the sun as a light,
And the moon, the lesser one, glows at night.
And a wonder too, this God of Creation,
Gave us a Way, for eternal salvation!

His Hands created, the whole wide world,
Then the sun, moon and stars were unfurled.
His Hands made the fishes, in the sea,
And all the animals, roaming free.
His Hands made birds, that fly in the sky,
And fowl for food, on which men rely.
His Hands made those "lights," moon, stars and sun,
His pow'r and wisdom, we must not shun.
When I consider, the work of His Hands,
What is man, in this glorious land?
The Earth's foundation, shall not be moved,
His hands brought the Flood, which this did prove.
His Hands sends springs, which run thru' the hills,
So beasts of the field, can have their fill.
His Hands made trees, for fowls of the air,
Ev'n the lowly sparrow, has no despair.
His Hands bring rain, a blessing indeed,
Bringing food from the Earth, which we need.
How diverse, is the work of His Hands,
Full of His riches, is this whole land.
In wisdom, all things His Hands did create,
An awesome God we have, and O' so great!
His glory shall forever, endure,
And His Hands keep, His children secure.
We must be strong in the Lord, and His pow'r,
When I'm weak, Christ comes thru', at any hour.
Praise the Lord, each and ev'ry day anew,
And His honor an glory, always pursue.

God as Creator: (Gen.1:1; Ex.20:11; Neh.9:6; Job 12:9; 26:7,13; Ps.24:2; 33:6; 95:5; 102:25; 104:5,30; 128:5-6; Isa.40:28:45:13; Acts 4:24; 7:50; 14:15; 17:24,28; Heb.11:3; Mat.10:29; Psalms 8 & 104). The Glory of God: (Jn.1:14; 2 Cor.4:6; Heb.1:3; Deut.28:58; Neh.9:5)
Wonders in God’s Creation
The way of an eagle in the air,
Is something that God, with us does share.
The way of a serpent on a rock,
Gives us warning, as where we should walk.
The way of a ship, in the midst of hew sea,
Sailing so smoothly and gracefully.
A man and a woman falling in love,
Could only come from our God above.
Ants are a people, they are not strong,
They prepare their food, all summer long.
Conies are feeble, make their homes in the rocks,
Where they take refuge, when predators stalk.
Locusts have no king, yet go forth by bands,
Creating havoc, throughout the lands.
Spiders grab with their hands, are in king’s palaces,
These creatures are something we all face.
The lion is strong, turns not away,
From any who confront him, any day.
A greyhound, a he-goat and a king,
There is no rising up against these things.
Our God created all things, ev’rywhere,
No one, anywhere, with Him can compare.
All creatures differ, He made them that way,
A great gath’ring, He puts on display.

YOUR WISHES AND YOUR WILL
If my life is not pleasing to Thee,
Lord, reveal all my errors to me.
Your wishes and Your will, Yours alone,
Lord, please make Your will to me, made known.
Your will be done, I want nothing more,
For it’s You, Lord, I worship and adore.
Serving You daily, is my pleasure,
Blessings from You, are a great treasure.
Difficult, are some lessons in life,
Your strength is needed, when I face strife.
No matter what, don’t let me back away,
Let me be faithful, day after day.
If it’s not Your will, let me pass by,
I know worldly things, I must deny.
Your wishes and Your will, this I desire,
Let me, with Your love, others inspire.
Your wishes and Your will, let me seek,
And gracious Lord, help me to be meek.
Give me patience, as I walk with You,
Guiding on the narrow road with the “few.”
I look forward to my home above,
Where I will continue, to serve in love.
I care not, what others think of me,
I look to the day, when I’ll live with Thee.
