In Awe of the Creator


 
"By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible." - Hebrews 11:3

How many things have you made out of things that were not visible?  For me, that's a big zero!  But God didn't want to leave any room for speculation, so He created the UNIVERSE - all of it - out of nothing more than His Words.  Every theory of creation that man has ever dreamed started with something, some substance that he dreamt he could determine how it came into fullness.  But the fact is, there was no substance until God caused it to come into being.  Particles floating in space?  Electrical current in the atmosphere?  How did it happen that those particles and electrical current came into being? 

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and WITHOUT HIM NOTHING WAS MADE THAT WAS MADE." - John 1:1-3

The problem with folks that cannot believe in His divine creation is that they try to frame the ability of God into what they can understand.  LET GO OF TRYING TO UNDERSTAND!  We are not God, and we will never grasp His abilities.  Our minds were formed by Him, and not equal to Him.  The creator is always greater than the created. 

Once we determine to allow God to be beyond our understanding of abilities, then we can understand that only through His divine power could such a universe of planets, stars, moons, lightening, thunder, water, land, rain, snow, seasons of growth and death and resurrection, life of animals, and most importantly, the life of man be formed. When we look around at what He has created, we are left with nothing but amazement.  We are awestruck at His ability to create and His imagination. 

"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse" - Romans 1:20
