Words from the Heart for Friday April 20th, 2018
Who created the ocean? Who caused it to be born? When I fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors; When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!’
Job 38:8,10-11 (NIRV & NKJV)
This Far You May Come
The vast oceans with their majestic waves cause us to be reminded of our God as Creator. There is order in the regular waves that come up to the shoreline. This makes it possible to live safely without fear. We are wise to respect the mighty oceans and this divinely-established order.
The Great Divide Trail follows the Great Divide through Alberta and BC’s Rocky Mountains. It runs for an amazing 1,200 km, and while most of it is best suited for experienced hikers, the stunning vistas and high-altitude serenity make the challenges worth the effort. There are more than 1,500 meters of elevation difference between the highest and lowest points on the trail. Much of the Great Divide Trail is rugged and unmarked other than by GPS coordinates.
Without the laws of science the world would spin out of control and life simply would not be able to exist. Our planet is just the right distance from the sun, tilted at just the right angle, just close enough to the moon for our natural satellite to have just enough influence on such things as the tides. It really is beyond belief that anyone thinks this all just happened by accident. The Creator God certainly didn’t think all of this happened by chance. In Job 38:8-11 the Lord speaks into Job’s life and says, “Who created the ocean? Who caused it to be born? When I fixed My limit for it, and set bars and doors; when I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!'” When God created the world, He did so with very clear laws and boundaries. Genesis said He divided the waters and formed the oceans. Before the Fall there were no floods and no natural disasters. When He forms the new heaven and the new earth there won’t be again. Thank the Lord for His care for the world He created.
These have been words from the heart.
