Last night after exhausting Bear of (almost) all of his energy at Chad's parents house, we sat down to watch one of the many episodes of Planet Earth that we have recorded. I adore this show. I'm always in constant wonder of the animals and how they grow, eat, migrate, and know how to do everything. I don't know if the creators of Planet Earth knew that they were making such a remarkable show that honors God.
God does tell us:
For all the animals of the forest are mine, and I own the cattle on a thousand hills.
I know every bird on the mountains, and all the animals of the field are mine.
Ever since I was born, I was told that God created the heavens and the earth. I had Sunday School lessons about it and learned Bible passages that supported it. I have never really fully appreciated it, though. Whenever I watch just one episode, I always marvel at how wise God is that He created all the animals and how He thought about everything they need. If you ever have a chance to watch the show, I suggest you do. It always humbles me and reassures me of God's grace and unmatchable wisdom.
Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.
Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises. Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.
I have not mastered human wisdom, nor do I know the Holy One. Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down? Who holds the wind in his fists? Who wraps up the oceans in his cloak? Who has created the whole wide world?
