Daily Devotion: Creation

Bible Reading:  Genesis 1 

Key Verse: Verse 1 - In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Key Words: God created the heaven and the      earth

Many today are prone to believe in evolution rather than creation.  For me, that would take more faith than believing in God.  My heart goes out to those who are blinded by ignorance and cannot see the truth that “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Many years ago, Isaac Newton had an exact replica of our solar system made in miniature.  At its center was a large golden ball representing the sun, and revolving around it were smaller spheres attached at the ends of rods of varying lengths.  They represented Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and the other planets.  These were all geared together by cogs and belts to make them move around the “sun” in perfect harmony.

One day as Newton was studying the model, a friend who did not believe in the Biblical account of creation stopped by for a visit.  Marveling at the device and watching as the scientist made the heavenly bodies move in their orbits, the man exclaimed, “Why, Newton, what an exquisite thing!  Who made it for you?”

Without looking up, Sir Isaac said, “Nobody.”


“That’s right,” replied Newton.  “I said nobody.  All of these balls and cogs and belts and gears just happened to come together, and wonder of wonders, by chance they began revolving in their set orbits and with perfect timing!”

I think you get the point.

What to do:
✞ Thank God daily for His marvelous creation – and the creation of being born again and becoming a new creation in Christ.
