God's Awesome Power!

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." ~Genesis 1.1

We often do not realize what that sentence means. We just say, "'God created.' Yep!" But God made our world incredibly complex. Of course this was a simple thing for Him, but to us it shows great and unsurpassed power. Think of a piece of metal. You are trying to figure out what to do with it. Will you make it into a toy truck? Think of all the work you would need to put into it to transform the metal into a truck, and, especially if it was your first time building one, think of all the flaws it would have. Yet our Creator created a flawless masterpiece out of absolutely nothing. How great is the Potter! Something else I have struggled to comprehend is that God is eternal. I have no trouble processing the fact that He will be forevermore. But it is very hard to understand how He has been forever. Our minds cannot imagine something that does not have a starting point. The concept is completely impossible and unbelievable. How awesome is His knowledge and majesty, and how awesome are His plans! All is done to His glory. So let us be aweful before our Lord! (Note that aweful in this case doesn't mean "bad" or "disgusting". It simply means "full of awe") God Bless!

Your Brother in Christ,
