“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

Some scholars believe God created the world out of nothing. Even if God built the earth from a mass He still was the One that created the mass. Passages such as Colossians 1:16 and Hebrews 11:3 seem to support this argument. One author wrote, “How astonishing is the power that could produce such a world out of nothing! What an object for adoration and praise; and what a foundation for confidence and hope have we in this wonderful Being.”

Even though I do not consider myself an artistic person, a deep appreciation for artistic and creative ability has developed within me. I am amazed at what some people can do with a pile of wood or what others can do with a lump of clay. Some people can take a blank canvas, a brush, and a can of paint and create a piece that engages my emotions in surprising ways. These examples are more evidence of people being made in God’s likeness. Both love to create. 

However, our best creative acts pales in comparison to what we read in Genesis. Artists and craftsmen start with tools and some learned procedures. God started with no tools and no rules. His voice became His tool (Romans 4:17) and His will became the source of His rules. Honestly, I can’t wrap my mind around how He truly made something out of nothing. The only appropriate response to God as Creator is adoration and worship.

Question: When was the last time you took the time to allow the contemplation of creation to lead you into authentic worship?

Challenge: Take time to reflect on God’s creative nature. Let those observations lead into an intentional worship experiences.

Prayer: Lord, Your ability to create is awe inspiring. I do not want to miss any of Your creative acts. Open my eyes to see all your creative works around me. Amen.
