Celebrating Creativity

April 16 | Bible in a Year: 1 Samuel 30-31; Luke 13:23-35

Celebrating Creativity

God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures.”
Genesis 1:20
READ GENESIS 1:1–21

A rarely seen jellyfish waltzed with the currents, four thousand feet deep in the ocean near Baja, California. Its body shone with fluorescent shades of blue, purple, and pink, bright against the backdrop of black water. Elegant tentacles waved gracefully with each pulsing of its bell-shaped hood. As I watched the amazing footage of the Halitrephes maasi jellyfish on the National Geographic video, I reflected on how God chose the specific design of this beautiful, gelatinous creature. He also fashioned the other 2,000 types of jellyfish that scientists have identified as of October 2017.

Though we acknowledge God as Creator, do we slow down long enough to truly consider the profound truth revealed in the first chapter of the Bible? Our amazing God brought forth light and life into the creatively diverse world He crafted with the power of His word. He designed “the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems” (Genesis 1:21). Scientists have discovered only a fraction of the wondrous creatures the Lord created in the beginning.

God also intentionally sculpted each person in the world, giving purpose to every day of our lives before we drew our first breaths (Psalm 139:13-16). As we celebrate the Lord’s creativity, we can also rejoice over the many ways He helps us imagine and create with Him and for His glory.
By Xochitl Dixon

INSIGHT
The book of Genesis describes God’s creative work: first the heavens, the earth, and the seas; followed by all forms of life—birds, fish, animals, and humans (Genesis 1:1-27). Scientists estimate there may be two million to fifty million different kinds of animal species today, with less than two million having been named. These statistics are mind-boggling and evidence of our creative, powerful God. K. T. Sim
