Genesis 1:31 All That God Does Is Good

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning–the sixth day. Genesis 1:31

Businesses and people are making things every day all around the world. New products of nearly everything imaginable are being created for people to use.

As these are being made, some come out very good and become popular. Other things are not so good to even horrible and fail at gaining the desire of the people. When things fail or are not so good, some will attempt to improve them, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing in the end.

Genesis begins with God creating everything that is. As He finishes creating everything on the sixth day, He sees that everything is not just good, but very good.

The world tends to think that God made some mistakes. It is common to hear people say that God made a mistake or was cruel when a baby is born with a deformity. Or that He made a mistake in allowing a person to get sick or die.

God makes everything in perfection, but many people forget that man messes things up. It is because of man’s sin that sickness, pain, and death occur on a regular basis.

All the sin of man does not negate the perfection of God’s work. Everything that God does is very good. It is done with a focus of giving life, the best life to each and every person.

Some will choose to believe God and follow His path to eternal and perfect life. They will see the goodness of God’s choices and path for their lives and walk in it.

Many will choose to reject God, believing that they know a better way to life and in the end will only bring death and destruction.

Despite all of the challenges in your life, God loves you and wants only the best for you. Just as much as God is out to build you up, the world is out to destroy you and tear you down.

Rather than blaming God for what the world is doing, trust God and follow Him. Know that He will never do anything that is not very good in light of eternity. Things may be painful in the moment, but it is only a very short momentary second in the face of eternal life with God someday.

Know that all that God does is very good.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will trust God’s work in your life; that you will see the goodness of all that God does; and that you will become more like Jesus every day.

Genesis 1:31 All Is Very Good

Earth from space

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning–the sixth day. Genesis 1:31

All over the world there are places of great beauty in nature. Great forests, trees, lakes, rivers, wild animals, mountains, valleys, and an endless list of other things of great beauty in nature. People will travel the entire world, just to see some of these locations of great beauty. It causes a person to stand in awe of how great an area is.

As many people view these places, they also believe that all of these great places happened only by chance and that there is no God behind it all. They believe in random chance in life.

When man enters the picture of this world, the things are not as great looking. Mankind has destroyed a lot of locations of natural beauty. They tear down and build houses and cities on it, they do not take care of it. In the end, man makes things second rate…at best.

God made everything that is and can be seen. In the beginning, when God made this great world, it was considered very good. God only makes the greatest and the best. This can be seen in locations around the world to this day.

Man was also created in perfection and was very good, until man sinned and fell away from God. However, God made a way for man to be restored, created new again. In the same way God created this great world, He also creates new men and women when they begin to follow Jesus.

As God is creating a person into a new person in Jesus, there will be tough times of molding and shaping. It is not always easy, yet it is what is required to be created new. Yet, through it all, God is doing something that is very good. He does not do anything bad.

During the times that are rough, you need to know that God is still at work at creating you into a new person. He will not do a bad job as He works on changing you.

If you are willing to follow Jesus and fully trust Him, in the end you will be very good. God will not mess up His creation. Only man destroys. God creates for life and beauty, not sin and destruction.

Trust God to do a very good job with your life.

I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will allow God to create a new person out of you; that you will know that God only does what is best; and that everything will be worth what God gives you in the end.
