Contemplating God’s Power to Create

[Originally published as Order Not Chaos]

In the first few seconds of time, the Lord began establishing space and matter. As that matter came into existence, it was incomplete and formless. Yet the Lord had a plan of perfection and order in all things.

His plan was never chaos, as some suggest the first moments of creation might have been. Neither was there ruin as the Lord was preparing the good creation. In an instant, matter went from formless to order at every atomic level, known and unknown to us today, during the Spirit’s moving with the addition of light.

We see the Lord’s power and glory manifested in creation from the time He said, “Let there be light.” The power for holding all matter together is found nowhere else. As a matter of fact, the strong force that holds the nucleus of the atom together is still a scientific mystery to a degree. It is more than feasible for a believer to understand it as the Lord’s powerful hand. He is sustaining life and has been from the very beginning, just as the apostle Paul wrote in Colossians 1:17.

When life feels out of control, we have the Lord’s testimony of His creation.

Those who support a Big Bang model or old earth history undermine the origin of the Lord’s purpose for life. They place order much later in time and only allow for natural processes to bring that order. Such a worldview allows doubt as to when the Lord is active and in control of all things, or even worse, implies that the Lord uses chaos within His perfect creation of everything. This is simply oxymoronic. The first day of creation shows the Lord’s purpose and assures us of His control.

The Lord has a plan or will for your life that began at creation. That will is a perfect one that ends with eternal life with Him, a relationship planned for in the first moments of creation as the Spirit began moving over the matter. All of creation was SHAKEN with purpose for you, His image-bearer’s existence. Our security and comfort in times of chaos is the Lord Jesus Christ, who has shown us His plan from the first moments of creation and continues into eternity. Blessings.
