By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. – Hebrews 11:3
Dear Heavenly Father, this verse has become my dearest friend whenever I hear the debate about how the world and the universe began. In all of our scientific strivings, we formulate theory on top of theory of how it was formed all by itself out of matter that has already existed. With all timetables aside, we forget the one fundamental reality that you so clearly put forth here in your word; everything we see was supernaturally made by your command out of nothing. I will never understand how you did it, but one glance at your beautiful creation makes it easy to see that you did it. Only an all wise, infinitely powerful God could create such a magnificent universe with an incredible earth that sustains so much diverse life and then graciously give me the opportunity to live here for a short time. If this is what you do for our temporary earth, I can’t wait to see our eternal home in heaven.

God wants us to enjoy the beautiful world he created for us and he wants us to worship him for making it for us.
