Verse Nehemiah 9.6 You Alone Are The

Jaelynn Bass opinion on Verse Nehemiah 9.6 You Alone Are The

We were all created by God for a purpose which was also our special mission here on earth. Each of us has a duty to fulfill these purposes because in the eyes of God we are all equal. From this, we learn that God gave us life and he is the sole creator and only His breath can give life, and only he should take it once our purpose is fulfilled on Earth. At the beginning of time, the earth was formless and desolate and only God was there with his spirit floating above the waters. He decided to create the earth and his own dwelling place but on the first day, he commanded the light to be formed. This commandment was of significance because God is light and light and from light plants can make food that provides energy for all biodiversity.

On the second day, the Lord created the sky which is also referred to as the heavens. Heaven is the dwelling place of God and from his seat of glory, he watches over us mankind. In Heaven, the Lord is surrounded by angels and other heavenly beings who sing praises to him endlessly with musical instruments that shake the foundations of Heaven. The scriptures say that Heaven is a city whose streets are covered by pure gold where hunger, hate, stress and sin is non-existent. This is why God says that the earth is our temporary home and we should all live righteous lives so that we enjoy in his glory in Heaven since Christians believe in the afterlife. The angels in Heaven all bow down to God who is the Creator and the most powerful.

During the third day, the Lord created the earth, sea and plants which form the human world. The earth is where we men live while the seas are occupied by sea creatures both great and small. Being the creator, the Lord is fully in control of all these things and the Bible tells us that even mountains tremble at His voice. Showing his power over sea creatures, the Lord commanded a whale to swallow up prophet Jonah as he tried to run away from God’s mission to his people in Nineveh. He is the sole provider and by creating plants and other smaller animal life, the Lord has sustained aquatic life by nourishing them fully. This is why all his creations recognize, fear, respect and worship Him. The scriptures say that if humans stop praising God for whatever reason, the stones on the ground will raise their voices in adoration to the King of Kings.

As the verse says, only God and God alone is the Lord of lords. Many people have worshiped idols or even heavenly bodies such as the moon and stars as their god and that is why some are strong believers in horoscopes. We should learn that these bodies have neither life nor power and our trust should only lie on the Lord God who made Heaven and earth. If we believe in Him and praise him, he will shower blessings on us and we would live blessed lives.
