By, For, and Through Him

A lovely ride a couple of days ago entering the Serengeti. Amazing to think that Our God – The One that we worship and live our lives for –  created so many varieties of creatures!

Each one of them is majestic in their own right. Beautiful and breathtaking! They live in the beauty of nature and depend upon the natural tendencies given to them by The One who made them.

  • It’s hot! They don’t complain.
  • It’s cold! They don’t complain.
  • They are prey! They don’t complain.
  • It’s birthing time! They don’t complain.

They just live – knowing inside themselves that everything will work out as it should. A Beautiful picture of faith!!

And then I started to daydream about us – mankind; human beings. Each one of us is majestic in our own right. Beautiful and breathtaking! We live in the beauty of God’s world and depend upon the calls/passions He has placed within us to bring glory to The One who made us.

  • It’s hot! We don’t complain.
  • It’s cold! We don’t complain.
  • We are prey of our enemy, Satan! We don’t complain.
  • We have families to provide for! We don’t complain.

We just live – knowing inside our hearts, deep within ourselves that everything will work out just as it should. A beautiful picture of faith!! And then I pinch myselfit is just a dream, we humans are not quite like the animals in The Serengeti. We do complain and doubt – often!    

I’m praying – praying that we will all grow within ourselves a sure knowledge about why and for Whom we were created. Praying that our faith in Him for everything will be complete, allowing us to walk in His will at all times – especially when we don’t like what it brings.  Grateful for this time to see God’s creation up close and for the lessons, especially this one, He spoke to my heart.

“because all things in the heavens and on the earth were created by him … all things were created through him and for him,” Colossians 1:16

“for we live by faith, not by sight—” 2 Corinthians 5:7
