Calming and beautiful
I don’t know about you, but I love water. It doesn’t matter if it’s the relaxing sounds of the ocean, a babbling brook hid deep in the forest or watching all the life in the oceans depths. There is something very calming about water. As we walked through the aquarium in Atlanta, it was awesome to look at the variety of life found in the depths of the waters.
This looks like you are on the ocean floor. In reality, you are safely behind a 2 foot thick piece of crystal clear plastic! While we were looking at this scene, we listened to the narrator explain that these all lived together because of the way they were designed. Designed by who or what?
I believe in one Intelligent Designer, Almighty God! I love the simplicity of how God narrates what He did and makes it seem so simple. Genesis 1:3 starts with the words, “And God said” and from there on it is a series of God’s commands and all that we know came into existence! To think that these were just a part of the thoughts of God is incredible. Look at this small snapshot of how varied the fish are in this image. There are hundreds, possibly even thousands more sea creatures that aren’t represented here and some that aren’t visible to our eye from this vantage point. Verse 20 talks about the life within the water. And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life. V21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind…and God saw that it was good.
