Today's Verse: Hebrews 11:3

Wednesday, November 3, 2004

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
— Hebrews 11:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Where did it all come from? Where did matter, energy, and time come from? How did our universe come to possess order and structure, when all we know about our existence moves to decay, disorder, and death? By faith, we know it came from the articulated design of our Heavenly Father!

My Prayer...

Thank you, dear God, for the wonderful world that you made. Thank you for the principles of order that govern our world and help us understand it. My heart soars at the variety and majesty of your creation. In Jesus' name. Amen.
