It was interesting to read of all the evidence for the expansion of our universe. The “big bang” theory says that roughly thirteen billion years ago our universe began as a concentrated single point which then expanded quickly through an explosion to what it is today. This theory begins with a certain “something” as does the theory of macro-evolution. With this theory everything evolves over billions of years from a single celled organism. Both theories have difficulty in explaining how that first “building block” could ever come into existence.
Today’s verse has no such difficulty. As an all-mighty all-powerful Creator God, He can create something from nothing. He calls into being something visible just by His word. He had no need to start with something that had previously existed. Everything that has been created, visible and invisible, in heaven or on earth, has been created through Him, in Him and for Him (Col. 1:16).
No one was there at the beginning except God Himself (Gen. 1:1). None our scientists or philosophers or poets were there to explain how our world came into being. To believe any of the theories taught today takes faith. And believers understand the earth’s beginnings by faith as well.
It all boils down to where I place my faith. By science I can understand so many wonderful things. But it is by faith that I understand that God created our world. His creativity and attention to detail continually amazes me and prompts me to worship. And if I can believe He created my world, than I can believe that He created me and loves me!
Thank you Lord, for being my Creator.
