The Earth is Full of Your Creatures

"How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number—living things both large and small. " - Psalms 104:24
Even in the depths of the ocean, the beauty of God's creation shines through. The seas teem with countless amazing and wonderful creatures, from silvery schools of fish that dart through the waters, to mysterious jellyfish which float silently through the deep, to reefs of brightly colored coral that provide a home for many.
Our exploration of creation continues to reveal new wonders and surprises. In the video above, oceanographer David Gallo notes that in the deepest parts of the ocean, where we might expect to find no life at all, we have found more life and diversity than even the tropical rainforest. Gallo also presents footage of sea creatures which have evolved astounding adaptations to match their unique environments.
As we continue to explore the vast and varied world around us, the words of the Psalmist ring especially true:
“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” – Psalm 8:9
