This small portion of the earth, Yosemite National Park, embodies much of the grandeur of God's creation, waterfalls, mountain peaks and ranges, sheer cliffs, and deep valleys. The God who created the buds on the flowers in the foreground also created the sheer cliff of Half Dome, Vernal and Nevada Falls, the mountains in the background, the deep valleys, and all of the earth. No detail was left to chance. He created it all. He foresaw it all before we were born, and He also foresaw you and me long before we were born. In Ephesians 1:4, the
word tells us, "For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight." (NIV) Within this magnificence of creation, "God knew me; He thought of me. We need to be sure that we think of Him and know Him. His creation i s a great place to start. I believe that God's creation calls us, beckons us to Him.
God Holds the Earth in His Hand
"In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him." (NIV)
