Wonderful, Magnificent God

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Genesis 8:1-19

One of the things I love about reading the Bible is the way the various forms of text (poetry, narrative, laws, instruction, prophecy, history) show and reveal God and His character to us. And that's precisely what Genesis 8:1-19 did for me today. Almost from the beginning of the passage I found myself thinking about how wonderful and magnificent God is--His greatness and power, and the fact that He is sovereign over all, yet at the same time, gives attention to detail and provides extraordinary care for all of His creation (Noah and his family as well as every living creature). God's magnificence is so incredible that it's beyond my full comprehension. And when you think about it, isn't that a precisely how it should be when it comes to God?

What did you see or learn about God from Genesis 8:1-19? What are three character qualities of God that stood out to you from this passage? Tami

I recognized God's attention to detail, ever date is recorded. Additionally his infinite wisdom, Moses sent out the birds to advise him on the status.His perfect plan, he saves the Godly, Noah and his family.

I saw that God's work isn't done exactly when we would have it done, its all in his timing. God is so beyond our intelligence and comprehension. We can trust in God for everything his work is always carried out to completion.

God remembered His creation,verse 1 says. In fact, He never forgot it, and was always watching over it. This speaks to God's faithfulness, His love, and His sovereignty.
