“And God said, Let there be…” and it was so (Genesis 1:3,6,9,11,14,20,24, 26). With such words, our world was created. With such words, matter came into existence. God simply spoke things into being out of nothing–ex nihilo. Hebrews 11:3 states, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the WORD OF GOD, so that the things which are seen were NOT made of things which do appear” (emphasis, mine).
What awesome power —- to speak matter, billions of tons of matter, into existence. Does this not tell us something about the power of God’s Word–in the Scriptures? The Scriptures are the Word of God (1 Pet. 1:25). Thus, the same Word that spoke the universe into existence, is the same Word that speaks in the Scriptures. Thus, the same power that was displayed in creation, is also contained in the Scriptures. Romans 1:16 states, “the gospel of Christ…is the POWER OF God unto salvation” (emp. mine).
Isaiah 55:11 assures us that God’s Word SHALL accomplish that which it is designed to do. Yes, God’s Word–whether at creation, or in Matthew through Revelation–is powerful.
May we be strengthened and take courage in this truth, as we have the obligation, and privilege, to seek and save the lost.
