Watch the Bubbles

Share This Devotional

As my car crawled along the automated car wash track, my thoughts drifted to times past, when my husband and I would take our children through the car wash for the express purpose of playing “watch the bubbles.” 

“Daddy, my bubble is racing yours!” our son would say.

“Mine is turning swishy circles!” our daughter would say.

I stroked my silver-steaked hair and prayed, “God, why do I still want to watch bubbles? My children are driving their own cars now. This is silly.” Just then, a scripture came to mind,

“... for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." ( b KJV) 

For God’s pleasure, and for ours, He creates. God invents the science behind what makes car wash bubbles fascinating to watch, but He doesn’t stop there. He creates snails with stripes and bushes with glitter dots. He makes a dove’s feathers to sing as she takes flight. He fashions the honeybee’s wings to interlock like a zipper during flight. God, the masterful creator, wants us to enjoy His creation the way He does. But there’s more ... 

Father God loves His people so much He gives them the innate ability to create, for He made mankind in His image. Only after God created people did He see that,

“... it was very good ..." ( b KJV) 

Of the rest of His creation, He saw that 

“... it was good.” ( KJV)

Paul records the works that we are created to accomplish with the Lord’s empowerment,

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." ( KJV)

There is even more ...

The Heavenly Father treasures mankind so much that He comes into the midst and sings His children a love song. Scripture records His thoughts,

"The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty ... he will joy over thee with singing." ( KJV)

Even though this is a song a person can’t hear with the natural ear, rest assured that He sings. And sometimes, when a worshipper is in the midst of praising His Creator, the Lord allows this melody to bubble within the heart.

Friend, since you are loved so much by your Creator that He sings over you, then enjoy the world He has fashioned. Next, praise Him for the ability He places within you to accomplish the works He has ordained you to do. But most of all, Praise Him for being the magnificent Heavenly Daddy who has uniquely created you.

Father God, thank You that You created all things, including me, for your enjoyment.
