“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).
It is stated in a profoundly simple way, and yet the message is simply profound. Dr. Henry Morris says, “This opening verse of the Bible is unique, the foundation of foundations.” What profound truth. The Bible doesn’t seek to prove the existence of our awesome God. It simply proclaims that He is. What security. What majesty. What stability in my life. If my great God could bring the vast galaxies into existence by simply speaking, I know that He can take care of those that I love as well as myself. God is in control of space (the heaven), time (the beginning), and matter (the earth). You can never think too highly of Him. Never!
For today: I am glad to have such a foundation as “In the beginning God…” How about you?
