Behind the Scenes #2

“The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations” (Psalm 33:11 KJV).

In the form of the Holy Bible, the Creator God has given us a “behind-the-scenes” look at creation! Will we humble ourselves to take a sneak-peak?

Have you ever wondered what is God doing? Some may say, “It seems like He has been out on vacation for quite a while!” Others may say, “I cannot believe that a loving God could exist because there is much suffering and injustice!” There is a creation, so there must be a Creator. (And, because He is the Creator, He is God, and being God, He has neither creator nor origin, or He would not be God!) But, where is He? Why does He not do something about all of the world’s problems?

Psalm 33 begins: “[1] Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. [2] Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. [3] Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. [4] For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. [5] He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.”

The God of the Bible, known as “JEHOVAH” to Israel and “the Lord Jesus Christ” to Christians, should be praised. It is proper for us to exalt Him, to sing songs to Him, to play musical instruments and communicate His doctrine to others. Why? His Word is “right,” and “all his works are done in truth.” How the God of the Bible loves “righteousness and judgment.” He is upright and fair: everything He does is honest. “The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.” How is that?

Verse 6 says: “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” Creation itself testifies to the goodness of the LORD, and in the Holy Bible, we learn why there is a creation in the first place….
