AND GOD SAID (THE CREATION IN POETRY)

In The Beginning God Created!
On His first day God said
Let the day now show forth the light
And the darkness now be called the night
On His second day God said
Let the waters all have expansion
That we may view Heavens mansion
On His third day God said
Let all the earth and sea now part
That food may grow and gardens start
On His fourth day God said
Let there be great lights for us above
The sun, moon and the stars to love
On His fifth day God said
Let the creatures be below and beyond
In life and death to their kind respond
On His sixth day God said
Let animals now fill the earth after a kind
And man in My likeness to rule as defined
On His seventh day God said
My work is now complete and I will rest
And bless this day to forever stand the test
"This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made earth and heaven" (Genesis 2:4)
Here in the very first chapter of God's word, we are introduced to the two main factions of life. Those being: God and man. Here, for the first time in history, we are introduced to God, the Almighty Creator of all things, revealing the ultimate object of his love—man
From this scripture account of the creation, we find that God was pleased with his work. Several times, during His creation, God stopped, observed his handiwork and saw that it was good (Genesis 1:4, 10, 12,18,21,25, ). And God was especially pleased with His creation of man, as He even regarded this work as "very good." (Genesis 1:31).
So, let us just stop here to remind ourselves that we are part of God's creation. Even when you don't feel worthy of his satisfaction, remember that God made you and is pleased with His handiwork (2 Thess 1:11-12). Are you pleased with Him (Colossians 1:10)? Have you given God a chance to show His "good pleasure" towards you (Philippians 2:13)?
Why not come to him and give Him a chance to take over your world (Psalm 32:8-10). You see, you can never be good enough on your own, pay or work your way, or even have a righteous friend or family member take your place. You must simply take Gods free grace, by your faith, and accept Him as your Lord and Savior (Ephesians 2:8-9).
