A few years ago, Time magazine reported that ‘Most cosmologists (scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation, in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth.’ And Jim Holt, science writer for The Wall Street Journal wrote: ‘The universe suddenly exploded into being…The big bang bears an uncanny resemblance to the Genesis command.’ Science defines the universe as being made up of five components: time, space, matter, power, and motion. Now keep those things in mind, and read Genesis 1:1-3: ‘In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter]. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be…and there was’ (KJV). The first thing God tells us in the Bible is that He created all things and that He controls all things. And this same God, with His infinite, unfathomable power, created each one of us, loves us, has a plan for us, and wants a relationship with us. We're so important to God that all His creative energy and power is focused on us. With His infinite power, He could have created anything, but He chose to create us, along with an entire world just for us. That's how much we mean to God. So we can be sure that whenever we cry out to Him, He'll be there for us, ready to meet our needs and offer His help.
Take a few moments today to thank God for His power, and for loving us so much that we can call on Him whenever we need Him.
