Maker Of Heaven And Earth
by Norman P. Spotts, D.D.
“My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:2).
The psalmist rightly said, “Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves” (Psalm 100:3). In fact, He not only made us, but continues to sustain our moment-by-moment existence.
What can we expect from such a wondrous Creator? Personal help: Not only is this related in the above text, but in Psalm 124:8 as well. “Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” God’s power displayed in creation is the same power available to bring help and aid to those in tremendous need. Songs in the night: “But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night” (Job 35:10). Even in one’s darkest hour the Holy Spirit can bring comfort and joy, placing a song in the heart. Present blessing: “The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion” (Psalm 134:3). God pronounces blessing on those who are in the place of blessing. Future hope: “Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is” (Psalm 146:5,6). “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is” (I John 3:2).
It would be fitting to remember the powerful words of Jeremiah 10:10,11. “But the LORD is the true God, He is the living God, and an everlasting king: at His wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide His indignation. Thus shall ye say to them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.” NPS
