When God had completed his wonderful creation he said it was very good. I can easily imagine him sitting back in his easy chair, feet up and with his hands clasped behind his head and a big smile on his face. Fanciful? Maybe. But that’s my sense of what his comment meant.

It says in Genesis:

“And it was very good.”  Genesis 1:31 NIV

Now, today, God still views his creation in the same way. No matter that we’ve made a mess of his gorgeous world. And, no matter that we’ve made a huge mess of our own lives.

Bear in mind, God knew the specific purpose you were born to fulfil, so He provided all the gifts you’d need, including the environment required to put it all together. Then He looked at you and said, “Very good.” Can you say that too?
