Testimonies of the Creator

Acts 14:15-17

"We also are men of like passions with you,
and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God,
which made heaven,
and earth,
and the sea,
and all things that are therein:
Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
Nevertheless he left not himself without witness,
in that he did good,
and gave us rain from heaven,
and fruitful seasons,
filling our hearts with food and gladness."

Psalm 65

Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion:
and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
O thou that hearest prayer,
unto thee shall all flesh come.
Iniquities prevail against me:
as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
Blessed is the man whom thou choosest,
and causest to approach unto thee,
that he may dwell in thy courts:
we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house,
even of thy holy temple.
By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us,
O God of our salvation;
who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth,
and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains;
being girded with power:
Which stilleth the noise of the seas,
the noise of their waves,
and the tumult of the people.
They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens:
thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it:
thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God,
which is full of water:
thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly:
thou settlest the furrows thereof:
thou makest it soft with showers:
thou blessest the springing thereof.
Thou crownest the year with thy goodness;
and thy paths drop fatness.
They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness:
and the little hills rejoice on every side.
The pastures are clothed with flocks;
the valleys also are covered over with corn;
they shout for joy, they also sing.

What lovely pictures--they remind me of the Creation Museum and the Aquarium! And the passages of Scripture are way more open and understandable after seeing all the stuff in those museums.

I hope you're having a nice time in Vernon! ;-)
