The Creator

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)

Did you know that everything we see around us had a beginning? The world with all its rocks and trees, oceans and clouds, people and animals—even the sun, moon and stars—all came into being at a particular point in time. The Bible says that all these things were created ages ago by a unique and supernatural being—the LORD God. God made each of these things by speaking out a command that they should exist. And behold! Each one came into being just as God had commanded.

And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:31)

Then when God had finished creating all things, He stopped from His work to look over all that He had made. And He saw that everything He had made was good, indeed very good. All the lands, people, animals, the skies, even the stars above and the heavenly beings—everything—was perfect and wonderful. Man and woman, whom God had brought into being from the dust of the ground and whom He made to be like Himself, were lovingly placed by Him as rulers over the earth. They were to govern in fairness, honoring God in all that they did. And under their care, even the animals lived in peace, both amongst themselves and with mankind. All this gave God great delight. For there was no evil, no disease, and no hurt anywhere in His world, only goodness.

The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all; and His tender mercies are over all His works. (Psalms 145:8-9)

Now God Himself is very good, always doing what is right. When He makes a decision, it is always fair. And when He says something, it is completely true. He never tempts people to think or act wickedly, but instead He encourages them to do what is right.

God hears those who call out to Him for help. He gives hope to those who are sad or discouraged. And He protects those who depend on Him. In His kindness, He continually takes care of all the living things He has created, even though many of them are unthankful.
