By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.Hebrews 11:3
A Work of Art
The first thing in this chapter that the author wants us to understand is that God is the author of all life. He spoke and the universe was formed. At His command birds inhabited the sky and beasts the sea. He gave every animal, including humans, life. God, who is unseen, created everything we see. Look up at the sky each morning and night and see evidence of His artistry. Hold a newborn baby and see the evidence of His crafting. In order to have faith, you must believe in the Author of life. It is impossible to have faith without believing this foundational truth.
Take some time to pray and thank God for all of the evidence of life. Thank Him for the work of His hands. He is truly the Creator God.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for the sunrise and the sunset. Thank you for painting a different picture every day. You truly are the Author of life. Amen.
