THE COMPLETENESS OF GOD'S CREATION

For thousands of years, man has sought to come up with a theory that explains the creation of the world. Many men have tried to do this with God out of the equation. This simply cannot be done, because it did not happen that way. This is why every theory that excludes God simply doesn’t work. Our best thoughts of a God-less creation fall woefully short.Here is the testimony of God to us:

 

Genesis 1:1: In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth.


Genesis 2:1: Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts.

 

God did this, and God did it perfectly and completely. In the middle of this day-by-day description of God’s creative burst there are little statements like this ...


Genesis 1:16: He made the stars also.

 

Scientists cannot come up with any viable explanation of the star’s creation and the complexity of this one little sentence. They have no good estimate of how many billions of stars there are (perhaps innumerable trillions) because of the limitations of our abilities to measure. Do a little search on this through the scientist’s writings and you will find a massive disparity, because they simply cannot know.


You can try to wish away God if you want, to your detriment. Or, you can let the beauty, perfection, and overwhelming complexity of God’s creation awe you into greater love and faith in Him. Instead of trying to exalt yourself and your knowledge, you can admit God’s existence and power and that He is greater than man and is, indeed, the One who even created us.


Such a God should be surrendered to and worshiped. It’s your choice. But I gladly, and gratefully, choose the latter.

Jealousy is always viewed in humans as a horribly destructive trait. Daniel Webster described it in his original 1828 dictionary as “the apprehension of superiority.” For instance, a person is jealous when they fear that someone has taken something that they want or may think they deserve for themselves; a position, an affection, an opportunity.

But is jealousy always wrong? Is it possible to be jealous for the right things? Is there a holy jealousy?

We are created in God’s image, and the fact that we have patterns is a residual effect of how we were created. Sin has damaged this, of course, but just as we have our ways, so does God. Knowing God’s ways is highly important in understanding and following Him.

Who has God placed in your life to intercede for them? Are their names on your heart? No one else may take up that responsibility. Are you entering the throne room on their behalf? And will you do it until you die, or they come to Christ?
