Genesis 1:9,10

Genesis 1:9,10: Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. And God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.

God looked at His handiwork and declared it good. This otherwise simple concept is laden with meaning and implication. To begin with, this is the Almighty God and Creator that is involved in the ‘doing’ or the ‘making’. Secondly, it is He that is doing the ‘looking’. He alone can judge one’s work, and only He can judge His own work. Thirdly, since this ‘handiwork’ is the creation of a perfect God, there is no option but for it to be perfect. No matter what God sets Himself to accomplish, tangible or intangible, it, by definition, will be perfect. Finally, God declares His work “good” or perfect. Whether it be His work at creation, throughout history, or today in your life and mine, God’s work is His own and it is perfect. We can rest assured in that. What remains is for us to recognize it as such just like He does.
