Words from the Heart for Thursday April 19th, 2018
What was it built on? Who laid its most important stone? When it happened, the morning stars sang together. All the angels shouted with joy.
Job 38:6-7 (NIRV)
Angels Shouted With Joy
Creation was a time of celebration among the angels with the God who was the Master Builder of the entire universe. Angels, too, are created by God. Here is a window into worship in that eternal realm. Today we can use our voices to worship our wonderful Creator God. He is mighty! He is worthy!
Four years after Canada finished fourth in three separate luge events at the Sochi Olympics – including Alex Gough — it looked like there would be more heartbreak in South Korea. And then less than two minutes later, utter joy. The Calgary native was sitting third heading into her fourth and final run before slipping back one spot with two German sliders to go. But Tatjana Huefner, who had been in second, made a mistake and suddenly Gough found herself with a bronze medal.
Don’t you wish you could have been present at creation? Imagine watching the great mountains rising from the oceans, valleys, rivers and lakes giving the continents their contour, animals being spoken into being and everything being perfect. The colours, scenery, scents and sounds must have been mesmerizing. Picture the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen, the most wonderful scent, the loveliest of sound, and they pale in comparison to what it must have been like as God was creating the perfect world. No wonder, in speaking of the world at creation, Job 38:6-7 says, “What was it built on? Who laid its most important stone? When it happened, the morning stars sang together. All the angels shouted with joy.” It’s no wonder that the angels shouted with joy. Human beings hadn’t been created yet, so the only ones that were present at creation were the angel armies, and they rejoiced at what they saw. Which demonstrates the glory of creation. These are the beings who dwell in the presence of the glory of God, and yet they were overwhelmed with the glory of God’s creation. So should we.
These have been words from the heart.
