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
The Beginning of Faith Devotional
Which is harder to believe? Someone crafted and created every single thing on the earth as well as the earth itself? Or that the entire universe came to be from a single explosion? To some, they both seem impossible, and others favor one over the other. However, in a world where we praise inventors and creators, does it seem so impossible that someone would have crafted the universe we live and breathe in? Every living thing, every cell in our body was created by someone who put great thought and cares into each detail. Doesn’t that make more sense than everything being random and explicit details forming out of nothing? Why wouldn’t we believe that we were created by the Lord Almighty? Isn’t it possible that if He crafted the entire Universe, then He also made man think and have a desire to create just like Him? Both beliefs require faith, but the difference is that one faith is a faith that ends with how the world came to be and the other faith is a faith that continues on and grows as the created walks with its Creator.
Which do you choose to believe? Do you want a faith that goes beyond believing that the world came to be out of a giant boom? Do you want a faith that starts by believing there was a Creator who created someone He could love and care for? That faith you will find in Christianity. God, our Creator, designed everything around us, gave us a beautiful world to live in, and longs to walk with us daily. All you need is faith in Him.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me to have faith in you every day when the world around me pulls me and tries to distract me from the truth. You are my Creator and I am your created. I worship you alone. Amen
