Four Small Wonders

2 Nov

God’s Word:  Proverbs 30:24-28

God’s Message to Me:

“There are four small creatures, wisest of the wise they are—”

1. Ants—frail as they are, get plenty of food in the winter; (I gave the ants the instinct to move deeper under ground in winter to survive the cold and store food to last.  They huddle together for warmth.)

2. Marmots—vulnerable as they are, manage to arrange for rock-solid homes;  (Because larger animals feed on marmots, the creatures make their homes in rock piles or layered rock hills. I gave them this way to protect themselves.)

3. Locusts—leaderless insects, yet the strip the field like an army regiment: (Locusts are grasshoppers that swarm—when the serotonin in their body changes and causes these normally “loner” insects to swarm and work together.)

 

4.  Lizards—easy enough to catch, but they sneak past vigilant palace guards.  (There is no such thing as a “lowly” creature.  They all have attributes that I have “gifted” them with for their survival.)

 

 

 

Lessons I would teach you from these four small wonders.

1. Like the ant—put something away for a future time of need.

2. Like the marmot—build your homes on a solid foundation.

3. Like the locusts—work together for the good of all.

4. Like the lizard—quietly go about your business.

God’s Question to Me:  Did you realize that humans are the only beings that can study other living creatures and use their discoveries to help themselves?  (Airplanes are a result of studying flying creatures, etc.)

God’s Promise to Me:   The many wonders of the world are my gifts to humanity—both to provide for your life and to give you beauty and sights to amaze you.

My Song to God:     by George Beverly Shea

There’s the wonder of sunset at evening,
The wonder as sunrise I see;
But the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul
Is the wonder that God loves me.

Refrain
O, the wonder of it all! The wonder of it all!
Just to think that God loves me.
O, the wonder of it all! The wonder of it all!
Just to think that God loves me.

There’s the wonder of springtime and harvest,
The sky, the stars, the sun;
But the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul
Is a wonder that’s only begun.

Refrain
O, the wonder of it all! The wonder of it all!
Just to think that God loves me.
O, the wonder of it all! The wonder of it all!
Just to think that God loves me.
