This is really a simple thought, but something that I have been thinking of today is this.
One thing that really points to the goodness of God towards us is how He has created this earth with everything that we need to survive and be provided for. I mean, I guess what kind of provoked this thought was a conversation with another co-worker yesterday about how different foods provide and help with different needs. I mean, it is so cool that God has made foods to have different types of natural characteristics such as watermelon being a natural diuretic, for example, or blueberries being filled with antioxidants. And how something so simple, like eating a variety of foods for nutrition, as God intended, gives our bodies what we need, so that they hopefully function better and in turn, we are able to serve the Lord, hopefully better, because things are working correctly.
But it all goes back to giving Glory to the One and Only Creator that has created all of these things that we need to begin with----BECAUSE HE IS WORTHY OF THAT!!!
And the various foods that God created for us is JUST ONE ASPECT included in the truth that God created this earth to contain what we need to live (from a physical standpoint.)
And aside from the physical aspect, there is also the Spiritual aspect, which is even greater, because God sent Jesus Christ to die in our place for our sins on the cross. Jesus had lived a perfect life without sin, and came to bridge the gap that you and I could never make right because of our sin against the One and Only Holy and perfect God. AND THIS IS OUR DEEPEST NEED!! To trust Jesus Christ's provision on the cross for us as the full-once and for all---all sufficient payment for our sin. Jesus Christ is God, and He rose from the grave proving that fact.
IT IS PRETTY AWESOME THAT WE HAVE SUCH A LOVING, YET RIGHTEOUS AND PERFECTLY HOLY GOD WHO HAS PROVIDED EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED!!!! What demonstrations of His great love!
