Manna in the Morning, Redemption

Manna in the Morning

06-11-09

Psalms 8:3-4, “When I observe Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You set in place, what is man that You remember him, the son of man that You look after him?”

            I recently received a PowerPoint taken by the Hubble camera showing close-ups of the moon and some of the planets.  The beauty of space and the perfectly balanced orbits shows the design of the universe is so precise and balanced there is no doubt whatsoever that it is the work of our great God and Creator.  Then to see the systems that are consistent in all the living creatures with similarities and subtle differences depending upon the creature’s diet and habitat proves again that we are the creation of a loving God. 

            Lower in order than the immortal angels, yet higher than the animals and beasts of the field, mankind is the only one of God’s creations with a soul that will exist forever, either in the glories of Heaven or the torments of hell.  It is because our God desired our love and companionship that he created us with a soul that turns to Him.  The angels cannot know redemption; they don’t know the joy of salvation, only the comparatively frail creation known as mankind can be saved from eternal damnation by God’s grace.  Just as Adam and Eve walked with God in the garden before the fall, we can have that same privilege of close communion with our Heavenly Father.  No man or woman is complete without that time of communication with their Heavenly Father.  Let Him speak to you through His Word and your meditating upon the Scripture so your mind is centered on Him, than opening your heart to His listening ear in prayer.  Without this time daily, our souls grow dry and wither. 

            Heavenly Father, we thank you for Your great love and grace.  Keep us concentrating on your Word and precepts as we live this day for You.  We ask this in Jesus’ name.
