Genesis 1:28-31 NASB

"And God blessed them; and God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.'  Then God said, 'Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plan for food; and it was so.  And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good."

The marvel of creation reveals both the heart and hand of God.  He made not only a world to look at and enjoy, but also a world to interact with and care for.  And, O how He cares!   Always remember that God, no matter how marred His creation, has not abandoned it.  He loves to interact with it and has promised to always care for it because we are His creation.  He simply doesn't walk away from something that He saw as "very good", but,  with a mind to restore, He, in Christ, came right into the midst of His creation, to dwell among us, forever demonstrating and declaring His unfailing presence, provision and promises.  As the old hymn says, "God will take care of you, thro' every day, o're all the way..."  Yes He will!
