Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Revelation 4:11
Why does a painter create? He makes things because he wants them. There is a creation inside of him waiting to get out, maybe to show or share with others. He molds for his pleasure and that creation serve a purpose. The purpose could be for his eyes alone or for the piece to be useful to others also. The painter paints because he loves to. He wants to create something beautiful or meaningful. His viewpoint of something can be seen by someone else. A writer writes to bring forth a wonderful story to enjoy and share with others, maybe to inform the world of important matters. Maybe the writer only jots down his thoughts for his own use, but he writes because that is how he expresses and shows his feelings.
What about a football coach? He desires to form the best football team there ever was. The coach wants to be proud of his team, to show their efforts to others. An inventor invents because something is wanted or needed, maybe so life could be a little simpler. He is delighted to bring into existence something that never was before. God is our Creator; we are made for His pleasure because He wanted to make us. He desires us around Him. He wants to enjoy our company. We are an expression of His love. We are made in His image. We would not have been born if He did not love us. Our Father wants to share with us all that He has. We are created for His glory. We are created for His use and purpose.
…all things were created by Him, and for Him. Colossians 1:16
Because of God’s will, for His pleasure, He formed us. Without Him, without his love, we wouldn’t be.
