Nothing Compares ...

"How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures." -- Psalm 104:24
A few years ago, a good friend of mine made a summer trip to Europe. In his travels he had the opportunity visit the Louvre. He saw the wonderful artistic and creative works of men long gone. Such displays are exciting to view and marvel over, and the earth is full of such achievements. Yet, while we might compare them one to another, they can never be compared to works of the Lord.
As the Psalmist moves through the display of all creation, he speaks of that which can be seen by everyone in the world. There's no need to travel far to view God's wise and diverse works. While men's works may be beautiful, they are lifeless. When the Lord creates, he produces the miracle of life that looks to him for daily sustenance which he faithfully supplies. Nothing compares to our Creator and Sustainer.
You are a wonderful work of God my friend. As Paul spoke in Acts 17:28 "For in him we live and move and have our being". So, are you as wise as the Lions who "seek their food from God" (verse 21)? Jesus taught us in Matthew 6:11 to pray "Give us today our daily bread". May we daily rejoice and rest in our wonderful Creator and Sustainer, who is wise in all that he does?
