Something From Nothing

Nobody else could have made something so awesome from absolutely nothing.

Genesis 1:31 Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!

I can be pretty creative and do some handy- man type of work to make something but I cannot begin to make something the way God did.

Every "scientific" explanation for creation is dependent on there being something around that was reshaped into something else but the Bible is very clear that everything was created from nothing, what a concept to try to understand the idea that nothing existed except for what God told to exist.

He didn't have a storeroom of parts that he rummaged through, he didn't have a box full of pieces that came with instructions on how to make a universe, he just spoke it and boom, there it was.

Jeremiah 10:16  But the God of Israel is no idol! He is the Creator of everything that exists,

Acts 17:24  He is the God who made the world and everything in it.

It is difficult to think that God has any needs, but perhaps he does have a need, something that he couldn't get before he created us, it is very likely that the main thing that God was creating when he made us was the ability to have a relationship.

Matthew 11:28  "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

I must remember that the Bible is God's love story, from Genesis to Revelations, you have written the greatest love story ever told. He is great at creating something from nothing, he did it with creation and he did it by loving us even when there was nothing coming back to him.

You are an awesome God that spoke everything into existence, thank you for the beauty that you have made, thank you for desiring a relationship with me.
