00240 - The Oceans
Updated: Mar 9
The National Ocean Service of America defines our oceans as seven in total. Arctic, North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific, Indian and Southern Oceans; In history these were all called ‘The Seven Seas’.
Seventy one percent of our planet’s surface is water therefore 29 percent is land. As we live on land, we focus more on it than the water around us, the deepest is the Mariana Trench some 11,022 meters below sea level.
In the oceans there are thousands of peculiar species, some swim through volcanic vents and are fine, others live so deep, they are rarely seen. Part of Genesis 1:21 says, ‘So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind…’ (NKJV) There is a link below to see 50 of the most unusual sea creatures. Thanks be to God for His creativity.
There is more that we don’t know than do know about the depths of the oceans.
Your creativity is astonishing Lord, I am in awe of You. Amen.
