How Do We Understand Creation?

March 5, 2022 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”

(Hebrews 11:3)

PONDER THIS:

Every three or four months there is some new article in the newspaper about the origin of the Universe. Every now and then a scientist will say some good words about God. That doesn’t give me any more faith in God. A little more faith in the scientist, maybe, but not in God. What is science? Science is the study of phenomena now existing. God asked Job this question in Job 38:4, “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?” How do we understand everything we see in creation? By faith.

You may say, “Well, that takes a lot of belief.” Well, it takes more to believe nothing times nobody equals everything. That’s what many believe. No wonder the Bible says, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’” (Psalm 14:1). God is the supreme fact and the man who denies it is the supreme fool. Faith is not contrary to reason, it’s simply beyond reason. To go in the laboratory to try to prove God would be like tearing a piano apart trying to find a tune.

  • What are some ways people seek to prove (or disprove) God today?
  • What are some ways you’ve sought proof of God outside of the faith described in the Bible?

PRACTICE THIS:

Take time today in prayer to ask God to give you faith in Him and His Word beyond what you can see or prove.
