My take: This is WHAT seperates the God of the Bible from the gods and and everyone else. This WHY He (not…it) is deserving of worship, praise and glory. This passage tells us HOW; He simply spoke existence into being from nothing! If you want to call that the ‘big bang’, fine but it was no accident and didn’t take billions upon billions of randomness to happen. God said, ‘let it be’ and BOOM! Its amazing and thus He is even more so. Its incredible how gravity keep the planets in their places. How atoms don’t randomly split apart for God, the One who loves you and I, commanded it so and to this day, they all hold firm. Because of the gross sin, God was forced to wipe the 1st act of people away save Noah and 7. In the book of Revelation, we read He will need do it again with fire. Maybe atomic, maybe not. Regardless, I sure hope to be out of this place.
My prayer: Creator of all, You are amazing and You created it all, including me. Help me to rise and shine and give You the glory You so richly deserve.
