Scripture: Hebrews (NIV) 11:3 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.
Observation: People who do not want to accept that God created the world look at what can be seen and try to develop a scenario that would result in our present world. Since God cannot be seen, he is not a part of their thinking. Many of those studying the earth look at the present earth and work backwards. I believe we should start at the beginning with God and work forward. Since no one alive today was present when the earth was formed, each scenario takes faith.
Application: Faith that God created the earth bolsters my faith that God is still able to “create” what I need. Faith that God sent His Son, Jesus, to die for my sins bolsters my faith that God is willing to help me.
Prayer: Lord, you are both able and willing to help me. I know I can count on you! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
