In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth
was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
Genesis 1:1, 2
Read Genesis 1:1-8
According to modern day research, the world’s population is approximately
seven billion people. Many claim to be atheists; they believe that evolution is
true rather than believe that God is the Creator who made everything. And
there are many Christians who call themselves creationists. This is not wrong
in itself, as facts gained from archaeology, as well as other sciences, prove that
faith in a supreme Creator is rational, not foolish.
When we turn to God’s Word, it begins by telling us of God and His creation.
It does not seek to prove anything; rather, it simply proclaims the
truth. This is different from acquiescing to the facts and evidences given
by creation itself.
Proclaiming the great deeds of God our Creator has one purpose, namely,
that you and I submit to Him, not only with our mind, but also with our
whole heart. This takes place in the same way that we are to accept the
method by which heaven and earth were created. We know that in the beginning
the earth was void and without form or order, a lifeless entity. Perhaps
you sometimes feel like this, empty and lifeless. But then we read that
the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. This is very encouraging
news! When God’s Spirit works, things happen: that which doesn’t have
life is given life!
Has the Holy Spirit also taught you to bow before your Creator?
An encouragement: Read Article 5 of the Belgic Confession, where the
Holy Spirit teaches us to submit to God’s Word
Psalter 37:1 (based on Psalm 19)
The spacious heavens declare, The glory of our God,
The firmament displays His handiwork abroad;
Day unto day proclaims His might, And night His wisdom tells to night.
