Psalm 104:30 (ESV)

30 When you send forth your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.

This verse clearly shows that with the Creator, there is eagerness to regulate life on earth.

If he breathes on the earth, life springs forth. Through his Spirit growth and flowering takes place everywhere. Young animals are born, wheat seeds germinate, new trees grow up, and babies lie in the cradle. Here the poet confesses this as a wonder from God’s Spirit. The Lord sends out his Spirit and therefore there are new generations of people and of animals…. Even spring is his wonder. Through his Spirit, God renews the face of the earth. When everything buds and a green haze spreads over the fields, that is the work of God’s Spirit.1

After all, this is how it started in the morning of creation, as the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters (Genesis 1:2), and this is how it will continue after the flood. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease (Genesis 8:22). This promise can be of encouragement to us, when we see that the fig tree does not blossom, and when there is no herd in the stalls anymore (Habakkuk 3:17). Soon God’s Spirit will be sent again, as is promised to us.
