Not Mother Earth, but Father God

Do you know that nature has great benefits for us mentally, physically, and spiritually? Do you know why? this 1-minute devotion explains.

My “workplace” for Bible Love Notes is a room in our house with windows overlooking our front lawn. Early this morning, as I sat writing, two rabbits hopped around on the lawn, and I thanked the Lord for the wonder of His creation. 

I often take these things for granted, but when I pause to think about the many species of animals, the variety of trees and flowers, the colors of sky and sea, I stand amazed. 

More and more secular studies are crediting “Mother Earth” with mental and physical benefits. Of course, we Christians know that it’s not Mother Earth who deserves the credit but Father God, our wonderful Creator (Genesis 1). 

God designed creation with purpose and meaning. That's why it brings us mental, physical, and spiritual benefits (Genesis 1:31; Jeremiah 51:15; Psalm 19:1; Psalm 104:24; Romans 1:20).

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.” Revelation 4:11

God could so easily have made a vanilla earth. But He chose to give us sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and textures that bring us pleasure and improve our well-being. I encourage you to take time today and every day to gratefully enjoy God’s creation.
