“He Made And Holds The Universe”

Key Verse

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).

TEXT — Genesis 1:1-19


Songwriter, Bill Staines, struck the right chord when he wrote, “All things bright and beautiful; all creatures great and small; all things wise and wonderful; the Lord God made them all”! Whichever way man turns, he will always be confronted with the evidence of God as the origin of his environment, outer space and beyond. He will be dwarfed by the overwhelming aura of God’s greatness. He spoke all things into existence as the Bible declares and He ordains their movements. No one is able to displace what God put in place since creation.

An irrefutable account of the origin of the world and the beginning of all things showcases in today’s Bible passage. God is here seen as the Source of all creations who spoke everything into existence. The creation story follows a sequential order that ends with a conclusive affirmation that all God created was beautiful without a single mistake and no creature is useless.

Coming to terms with the reality of the Bible’s version of creation would save humanity unnecessary labour. For instance, the ancient Greek philosophers and scientists were confused about the shape of the earth. At a point, some said it was flat. Those who disagreed could not provide an acceptable answer. Yet, the Lord, thousands of years before them, had revealed the planet’s shape through Prophet Isaiah. He said He “sitteth upon the circle of the earth” (Isaiah 40:22).

Believing the biblical account of the creation story strengthens our faith in such a mighty God who made the awesome world. As we look at the beauty of creation, we are compelled to conclude that they are the handiwork of a very skillful Designer who can surely beautify and sustain us, the crown of His creation!

Thought for the day

We may not see all of God but all we see of Him persuades us about His grandeur.
