This is the day that the Lord has made...

This is the day that the Lord has made...

Imagine what it was like just before the first day.  Nothing but stillness and darkness. The expansiveness of the nothingness and how it was all consuming.  Then there was light. A light to expose the emptiness of the darkness.  A light brought into the world to save the world from the darkness.   And it was good.  Then God worked for six days creating the heavens and the earth and when He was done, He said it was all very good. It wasn't okay.  It wasn't so-so.  It certainly wasn't average.  It was very good.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  John 1:3

If all things were made through him, and it is all very good, then I am very good.  I was created by God, for good.  The one who brought light into the world, created the Heavens and the earth, set apart the land from the sea, created me.  And since nothing was and is made without Him, I surely am very good.

It is hard to comprehend the power and glory of God in the minutia of our day to day life.  Nearly every moment of every day is filled  with "stuff" that can, and will, take our focus off of what is truly important, what is good.  Take a few quiet moments today to think about all the goodness God has made; how truly good you are because of Him; how good life is because He made it good. Then, remember that He is not done.
