Reason To Believe-Heavens And Earth

April 6th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s reason to believe is the existence of the heavens and the earth.

Jeremiah 32:17 records this prayer from the prophet: “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”

The evidence of nature and the universe says something to us about the nature of a universal God. His great power brought the things we see around us into existence.

The book of Hebrews describes the universe being formed at God’s command. By faith, we understand that this is how the heavens and the earth were created. And as we examine the prayer of Jeremiah, we see that if God is able to make this world in alignment to the sun in such a way that human life is sustainable, nothing is too hard for Him.

And if He is able to create more than 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone, the Milky Way, then nothing is too hard for Him.

And if He is able to create human beings to reflect His glory, then nothing is too hard for Him. He can move us to stand in awe of the might and majesty of His outstretched arm to create what He has commanded.

The existence of the heavens and the earth are reasons to believe in God’s good news.
