In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth
Have you ever read this chapter? Or maybe I should ask; how many times have you read this chapter? Some passages in the Bible I think often become so familiar that we skim over them while we read and we don’t really soak it in and after a while we treat certain portions as though they are “filler” for the rest of God’s Word.
Let these words sink in for a moment, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Our beginning, because quite obviously He was already there! He created everything we know, everything we see, feel, smell, things we know and understand and things we have no idea that exist and we have no comprehension. Scientists are blown away by things as they discover the depths of things they have never understood and they still are a far cry from comprehending all that God has done in creation! He created time for us; we can all argue all we want about how long it took Him to create the earth, but He makes it rather clear when He says “and there was evening and there was morning, the second day, or third etc.
You all know all of this so I am sure you are wondering why we are going over such a simple, elementary kind of lesson. Well, you know all of this and yet you are wondering, even as you read this today if God can handle your situation!
He created everything we know! He created you! All He had to do was speak and it was done! Why are you still questioning whether or not He can take care of you and all you are facing? Is anything too difficult for God? Of course not, so why are you doubting? “Does He care anymore about you,” you ask; Matthew 6:25-26, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap or gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” If He cares about the birds He certainly cares about you!
Take the time today when fear and doubts enter your mind to remind yourself of The God you serve! Fill your heart and mind with who He is and all He has done! He loves you and cares about every single detail you are facing! He cares about your wounded heart and He will use it to glorify Him as He carries you through and comforts you! God is a god of details, just take a look around you at all He created ~ He cares about the details of your every day life as well! Don’t allow Satan to fill your head with lies, hold on to the truth of Who God is and His character and love for you! The best is yet to come!
“When you can’t see God’s hand, trust His heart!”
