God's Fingerprint

Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Genesis 1:31 NKJV

A devotion for October 3rd through the 9th


Have you ever looked, really looked, and seen God’s fingerprint?  It’s all around us and this past weekend I got to see many things with God’s fingerprint all over them.  For He “made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them” Psalm 146:6 NKJV.  Since He made everything, His fingerprint should be everywhere you look.

Look at a Monarch Butterfly.  Its gentle wings outspread. The sun shines through the orange of the wings showing light and the shadow of flower petals behind.  The detail in the colors and pattern of the body and wing.  Everything very delicate and intricately made.  The butterfly starts as a caterpillar crawling along the plants and ground.  Then it finds a spot to spin a cocoon where it goes through a change.  It comes out the other side with all the color and delicacy the Master craftsman provided it.  Such beauty and so much meaning.  Every detail a mark of Him who created it.

Going out in nature there are things everywhere that have His mark, His fingerprint.  The trees, the birds, the flowers, everything!  Even on each one of us.  Each of us carefully crafted, created by Him for a purpose.  Our purpose is to share His word, His love with others.  To reach as many as we can to share His message of salvation and love.  Pay attention when you look at everything around you, even what you see in the mirror.  His prints are there.

Take time each day to look at all the detail He put into each and every creation.  See each gentle curve, color, and purpose.  Say thank you for the love He put into each creation, for the love He has for you!  Praise God for His loving kindness and care in all His creations!
