Gen. 1:1 says, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." The wonders of creation are a message from God for everyone to read. Gen. 1 recounts the seven days of creation. Not only do we see the things God created, but every element of chemistry, biology and physics were set in motion. The laws of nature were put into place so that the earth would be a beautiful place for people to inhabit. On the fourth day God created the sun, the moon, and the stars. I recently did a google search to find out how many stars are in the universe. After another look, astronomers say that the number of known stars has tripled, due to more sophisticated tools. In every direction of the sky, the stars reach to an infinite distance! Why would God make such an extravagant creation? Everyday, every person on the planet has an opportunity to experience creation, and ask the question, "How did this happen?" Everyday we have an opportunity to worship God because of what we see and experience. "For since the beginning 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," Rom. 1:20. The creation speaks of the invisible attributes of God: His power, His wisdom, His care, His love, His beauty, His order, His omniscience, His infinite greatness. An infinite creation speaks of an infinite God. I also did a google research of DNA. Science tells us that the DNA stretched out from a single person would reach to the sun and back about 610 times! DNA is a very complex ladder like structure and is different in each person making every person unique. Whether we look outward to the heavens,, or inward with the microscope, we are struck with wonder at the creation of God. No wonder God is called the Lord of heaven and earth, Matt. 11:25. Looking at creation gives us all the more reason to trust God with our lives. He who created the heavens and the earth can be trusted to rule in our lives. Let us take Him at His Word, and follow Him in this walk of faith.
Today I will let the awesomeness of God touch my heart!
