Introduction:

The creation of the world is a testament of God’s love, creativity, presence, intelligence and provision. The world around us points to the glory of God and ultimately the love He has for each of us. Through the creation account mankind is given a window to better understand and enjoy the Creator. The opening chapters of the greatest book ever written, the Bible, are not simply a prelude to the writings of wise men, prophets, kings and mighty warriors of God; these chapters give us a glimpse of what was and what is to come. It shows us how to navigate the world we find ourselves in today. This account reveals the singular greatest intention God had for us at the point of creation, that we would have an eternal, blessed and perfected relationship with Him.

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. God has made a home in the heavens for the sun………The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat. Psalm 19:1-4,6

Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:28-31
