Astrophysicists in our day unknowingly confirm the Genesis account of creation by suggesting that all of the “matter” in the universe today – including the matter in people, plants, animals, the earth, stars, and galaxies – was created at the very first moment of time.
Scientists will not admit to a Creative Designer who set this all in motion – giving credit to the Big Bang of gases; however, they cannot explain who created the gas. Many Biblical truths point to our Father God as Creator of heaven and earth.
The earth, the world and all who dwell in it belong to the Lord (Psalm 89:11). He founded the land upon the seas and forms the path that rivers take across this land (Psalm 24:1-2). By His Word, He established the heavens, and He gathered the water of the sea (Psalm 33:6-8).
The wonder of creation causes us to stand in awe of our Creator God. By His mighty Word, He commanded and it was accomplished, as well as it stands firm to this day – revolving on its axis at the exact tilt and rotation to sustain life (Psalm 33:9; Romans 1:20).
Even thrones, dominions, ruler and authorities are determined by the counsel of His will. The visible and invisible aspects of creation were created by Him (Colossians 1:16). He is worthy to receive glory, honor, and power.
It is by His power that all things were and are to this day created, and by His will that they all exist (Revelation 4:11). Ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and known of His glory (Psalm 19:1).
Through everything God made, we can clearly see His invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature. So no one has an excuse for not knowing God, and believing in the Gospel of His Son who paid our penalty for our sins (Romans 1:20).
Father God, Your Word describes You as our great Shepherd, who restores our soul (Psalm 23:3). Not only do You award us with complete healing as we enter through the door of death into Heaven, but You also heal us through every dark valley we ever experience during our lifetime on this troubled earth.
We stand in awe of You, and we sing Your praises now and throughout eternity. When difficulties overcome us, You deliver us. When we fail, You still love us; and that is all that really matters. When we see Your purposes in our circumstances, we can trust in Your heart, and know that You will always do what is best for us.
Thought for the Day:
A life of sinless perfection is achieved, one moment at a time, because our only true hope is totally in the Lord, and God takes pleasure in those who hope in His mercy and truth; He always hears us, and we sleep in peace, because He sustains us through debilitating circumstances in body, soul and spirit.
– Psalm 3:2-6, 147:11
