It Was Very Good

Genesis 1:31 And God looked upon all that he had made, and indeed, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!

I have never read in the scriptures that he ever returned to his work of creation saying: Oops, I made a mistake here—pointing at something he created. He probably looked at waters in the sea and oceans: He saw that also ‘it was very good.’ I am sure he thought that humans would say: It gets bumpy, and jumps out of its rightful place. Then he puts man to the test: Are they thanking me for my creation, that I think it was very good? Complaining about the loss, and all the money that went down the drain, along with the flood waters?

He created the ‘fires.’ Fire has kept his creation warm for as long people and animals have lived. He gave us the coal, the gas, the solar, the wood of all kinds, plus a coat of fur on most animals (for those who did not need fur, he made other ways to be warm). For example: I noticed yesterday, during the high winds, a few humans were gathered around together under a bridge that was dry of water (however, the water may be back next week—after a driving rain storm). However, during the wind and cold, he was keeping his creation warm, using the power he has—in a good way.

I have come to the decision: We are not to judge God’s works in any way—and that includes his children. You see, he created the ‘good and the evil’ (Proof: Isaiah 45:7 “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”)

From the age of one minute old, I was included in Biblical teaching. At an early age, I was drafted into the military. All the knowledge I had in my head had not yet made the long trip down into my heart. Viet Nam was not the best place to make that happen—once released after my duty was over (at the end of that war) I went home. After around two or three weeks later, a great depression (at 27) came over me. (I surrendered my life to Christ.) It was the best thing to ever happen to me. Close to around fifty-three years later, I am still growing and seeking direction from him who created us ALL in his image. (Am I all done growing? Heavens, no!) For you folks who encourage one NOT to believe all this: be careful what you say, as your time is coming also.
