“Through faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God; everything we now see was fashioned from that which is invisible.” Hebrews 11:3
Creation is the most obvious and universal gauge of our faith. Everything we see had to be created by something – either by chance or by a creator. To be honest, I think it takes a lot more faith to believe in the big bang theory than to believe in an intelligent creator. It seems far fetched to hint that every human with one of the most complex anatomies was created by two atoms randomly colliding together. The human brain alone with all it’s emotion and memory and the human body’s ability to heal itself seem to lend themselves to a Creator. Then you have to ask, “What created those two atoms?”
However it still takes faith to believe God created the world. By thinkng of creation we begin to find things we can’t reason out. We can make a good educated guess by all the things around us that there is an intelligent creator, but we still have to put our faith in an unseen reality. We do this everyday on a non spiritual level: When we jump we have faith in gravity that it will bring us back down. To sail a sailboat or fly a kite you have to trust in the wind. These unseen realities have become second nature to u,s because we have a lifetime of experience trusting in them. Having faith in the Lord works the same way. The more you actually trust in Him, the more obvious it is that He exists, that we can count on Him for everything, and that He is who He says He is. Fortunately, we have more than creation to inform us of His ways and who He is. Maybe we should spend more than two minutes reading it.
