I love reading through Proverbs 8, as I get a first hand experience of the pre-incarnate Christ creating the World in perfect order.
Did you ever think that if the animals were created before the plants, they would have nothing to eat?
If the fish were created before the firmament was divided, they would have no home.
If the earth was one foot closer to the earth, it would be devoured by fire.
If the earth was one foot further away from the earth, it would be too cold to support life.
The Father and the Son created the world, and are holding everything together by the might of His power.
God is a God of order, everything was created perfectly so that each portion of creation was sustained before the next day of creation.
He is the author of Creation, and the author of salvation.
We love to marvel at His orderly purpose in Creation, but do we understand the order of events in our life is perfectly planned, too?
Have you ever had one mundane job that gave you the skills required to land a better job?
Have you ever had one small trial that gave you the wisdom and experience to survive a bigger trial?
Have you ever had a “chance” encounter with someone who had a message or an answer that you needed to hear from the Lord?
Have you ever missed tragedy by minutes or seconds?
Everything is caused or allowed by the Lord in our life – nothing occurs outside of His loving guidance.
After He created the world, He said, “It is good.”
He will admire His handiwork again, when He completes the work He began at our salvation.

Amen Sister! My family and I are staying home from SBL this summer as our 10 year old goes by herself… it's hard, but knowing the Lord planned it that way even though we might not understand..we trust in Him and His perfect plan for our lives!! Something that will always stick with my girls I think was the day we rolled over our SUV on the way to deliver boy #1 and the events that led to it. They learned through it, everything the Lord does, when we love Him and are walking with Him, is good and for our good!On other note, Stayed home with a couple sick kiddos this Lord's Day and Alyssa and I ended up in I Tim. 2 while answering some of her questions, it was very nice… but thinking of vs 13, God also created Adam before Eve, intending man to be our head! Can't deny it, it started at the beginning!
