When God Made Goats
I have to tell you… I love God.
I cannot even begin to fathom His greatness. Every day something reminds me of His glory, of His power, and of His awe inspiring imagination.
Just reading Genesis 1 I literally stand amazed at His genius.
20 And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds[g] fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” 21 So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.
24 And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, “Let us make man[h] in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
He made this in all of it’s mighty glory:
He made him. Every cell, every muscle, every hair He formed. This mighty and majestic creature was formed by the Creator of the Universe. Wow.
This wily creature who can scale the flat side of our barn:
God made Him too. Every claw, tooth, tissue, and purr He knows.
But when God made goats…
I think he laughed.
And no, I don’t think he just let out a little chuckle. I think it was a big, all consuming, shoulder’s heaving, belly-aching laugh.
How can this crazy dance not make you want to get up and praise our Creator?
How can these sweet girls learning to walk not make you laugh until you cry?
And how can this video of a baby being born not just leave you in awe? (and laughing a little) (WARNING GRAPHIC)
When it shakes it’s tiny head … I just died. Y’all God is incredible.
I hope these videos helped you remember to praise our Savior today! I know I am.
