Words from the Heart for Wednesday August 12th, 2020
Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.”
Genesis 1:6 (NLT)
Approximately 30 per cent of Canada’s water drains to the Hudson Bay watershed. While they are ultimately considered to be part of the Arctic Ocean, Hudson Bay, James Bay, Ungava Bay and Foxe Basin are referred to as part of the Hudson Bay drainage area. The basin is fed by Manitoba’s Nelson and Churchill rivers, which flow eastward from the Continental Divide, as well as Quebec’s La Grand Rivière. The Hudson Bay drainage basin includes portions of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
There is nothing like watching a summer storm come rolling across the skies. You see the rain coming and you rush to bring anything that isn’t waterproof under cover. Even if you live beside a river, lake, or ocean, you appreciate the water that falls from the sky because it provides life for growing things. Genesis 1:6 speaks of this necessary water: “Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.” The Creator is the master scientist. He established the water cycle – the rains come, filling natural and artificial reservoirs. Water levels rise, providing all that is necessary for life. The cycle of precipitation and evaporation continues. That Moses understood this when he wrote the first book of the Bible is quite amazing. It makes sense that God would first create the two basic needs for life – light and water. The God who set in place the laws of nature, who inspires scientists to understand the principles He established, does all things well and in order. This is the case in the big picture and in your life and mine.
These have been words from the heart.
