As I gazed into the amazing night sky my thoughts were drawn to my Heavenly Father. I started contemplating how God through His Son spoke these heavenly bodies into existence. “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth” Psalms 33:6. Yes, just spoke the word! How awesome!! I cannot understand this but believe it. Why? Because the living Word of God says so.
Every day we are kept alive by that same life giving power. How sad it is to think that most of mankind do not give any thought as to who is keeping them alive.
The Sabbath was designed to bring our minds to dwell on our Creator, on the loveliness of His creations and the power that Christ used to bring everything into existence. Sabbath keeping is a sign between me and my Creator, that this same power that was used in creation, Christ will use to sanctify me. “Moreover also I gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.” Ezekiel 20:12. How could Sabbath ever be a burden if we know and believe this?
“Now the same One who, in creating, "spake, and it was", the same One who said, "Let there be light, and there was light," the same One who on earth spoke "the word only," and the sick were healed, the lepers were cleansed, and the dead lived--this same One speaks the righteousness of God unto and upon all that believe”. Lesson on Faith - A.T. Jones 1899
Our Creator who loves us with an everlasting love is longing to change each one of us into the divine image. If we will only believe!
