Friday Fire Starters are simple ways to kick-start your quiet time with God. Here’s today’s suggestion:
Focus on the truth that God is the Source of creation. Every created thing is from Him and of Him. We can create beautiful things–music, literature, art–but only out of the elements he gave us.
- But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. Jeremiah 10:12
- The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1
- The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters. Psalm 24:1-2
- It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts. Isaiah 45:12
Reflect on the scriptures above and praise God for the specifics of his creation and the things he chose to create that bless your soul.
