“God's Amazing Fish!”
Job 12:8-9 states, “…And let the fish of the sea declare to you who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this.” In this passage it states that the fish of the sea declare to people who do not know the Lord, that the Lord made all things, and that the beauty and uniqueness of the fish declare that they are made by God. In reading these verses in Job and seeing the boundless schools of fish in an aquarium, river or sea, how could there be any other explanation?
People have come up with the ideas of evolution, Darwinism and other godless theories of how things just came to be, but how can they explain measureless types, sizes and the abilities of fish and other creatures in our world? I guess if I had a wild imagination I could give the evolutionist one fish that could evolve from slim if I believed there was no God. But how does one explain the countless of talented and different species of fish without there being a Creator? Only with a loving God could you see His finger prints in creating a fish who would keep her babies in a cleft of a rock, protecting them from predators so that they would have a chance to live. Only our Lord could make another fish who could use its fins to walk on dry land and give it the ability to breath in the air or water. Only the Creator could make a different fish who could spit water into the grass and knock bugs into the water so they could then eat them. Only the King of Kings would make another fish whose sex is determine from the temperature of the water. Only the Word that became Flesh could speak these creatures into existence on the fifth day of creation and have them to fill the waters of the sea and multiple after their own kind. I could list many of the other fish and creators of the sea that have a talent to do amazing things, who are shaped like rocks, who have more colors on their scales than the rainbow and who reach a wide range of sizes. Only the Creator, God could do this! No, wonder the Bible and God’s people sing His praises. Not only does God deserve such praise but when one realizes what He has done how could anyone do anything else but praise him?
, “O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your heart…”(Ps. 95:1-8 KJV)
If God can make a myriad of fish in different shapes, sizes, colors, and abilities, just image what he can do with people who were not spoken into existences, but formed by the His own hands (Gen. 2:7). Imagine what the Lord could do with the person who acknowledges Him and calls upon His Name. We will be able to do the impossible and live the unimaginable, just because we are His little children. After all it was the Son of God who said, “Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believe on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (Jn. 14:11-13 KJV).
May we listen to God’s creation and not harden our hearts, but allow it to open our eyes and our heart to the wonder of our God and Creator. So that we can be called His people and glorify the Father and the Son by whom all things were made.
