Scripture:   Hebrews (NIV) 11:3   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. 

Observation:   People who do not want to accept that God created the world look at what can be seen and try to develop a scenario that would result in our present world.  Since God cannot be seen, he is not a part of their thinking.  Many of those studying the earth look at the present earth and work backwards.  I believe we should start at the beginning with God and work forward.  Since no one alive today was present when the earth was formed, each scenario takes faith. 

Application:  Faith that God created the earth bolsters my faith that God is still able to “create” what I need.  Faith that God sent His Son, Jesus, to die for my sins bolsters my faith that God is willing to help me. 

Prayer:   Lord, you are both able and willing to help me. I know I can count on you!    Amen
