Day 4: THE GRAND FINALE OF CREATION
Three simple yet life-changing truths:
- You have been CREATED by God.
- You have been created in the IMAGE of God.
- You have been created for the GLORY of God.
We share these truths with children, filling them with wonder about the unseen God and how powerful He is, but as we age we’re tempted to lose the wonder. We’re tempted to forget God is there at all.
While these truths all reveal the majesty of God, there’s one more part of God’s creation story that ought not be forgotten. After every day in the Creation process (Genesis 1), God looks upon what He had created and said, “It is good.” God was glad with His creation. But something changed after God made humankind in His image on the sixth day. God looked upon all He had made and said, “It is very good!”
Nothing more was needed. God declared His creation complete. Just like the grand finale of a fireworks display, God declared that we are the Grand Finale of His creation. As you read today, consider this: How do you respond to reading that God looks upon you as the Grand Finale of His creation?
How do you respond to reading that God looks upon you as the Grand Finale of His creation?
What verse in Psalm 8 sticks out the most to you? Why do you think that is?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method
Heavenly Father, today I thank You for making me a part of the grand finale of Your creation! That in the same way that a fireworks display lights up the night sky, You have created me to reflect Your light, Your grace, and Your love to others. I ask today that You will continue to help me own the truths of who You say I am so that I may better help others know the truths of who You say they are. I pray these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
