Wonderful, Magnificent God
Today's reading: Genesis 8:1-19
One of the things I love about reading the Bible is the way the various forms of text (poetry, narrative, laws, instruction, prophecy, history, etc.) show and reveal God and His character to us. And that's precisely what Genesis 8:1-19 did for me today. Almost from the beginning of the passage I found myself thinking about how wonderful and magnificent God is—His greatness and power along with the fact that He is sovereign over all yet at the same time gives attention to detail and provides extraordinary care for all of His creation (Noah and his family as well as every living creature).
"But God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the livestock that were with him in the ark." (Genesis 8:1)
God's magnificence is so incredible that it's beyond my full comprehension. And isn't that a precisely how it should be when it comes to such an incredible God?
What did you see or learn about God from Genesis 8:1-19? What are three character qualities of God that stood out to you from this passage? Tami
