Josh 2:00-7:00pm

God's greatness 1

'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.' Genesis 1:1 NKJV

There are thousands of questions about the world around us that our scientific knowledge isn't close to answering. Scientists try and understand what keeps the world working, but God, as the Creator, actually knows all the answers.

Job 26:7 (NCV) says, 'God stretches the northern sky out over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing'. The book of Job was written around one thousand years before Christ was born; long before science had proved that the earth is suspended in space, held by the gravitational pull of the sun. Many people at the time thought that the earth rested on the back of a giant elephant or turtle; how could it just float there? That's one of the amazing things about God - he does things that go far beyond our understanding. Jeremiah 32:17 (NIV) says, 'You have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.' Things can seem impossible to us, but not for God.

This means that when we're facing a tough situation and can't see a way out, we can confidently ask God to help us, knowing he knows the answer and has the best way to help us. Nothing is too difficult for him. We may not understand how he's working, but when we look back we can see the incredible ways he works things out according to his plan, and ultimately for our good.

So what now? Give thanks for the way in which God has worked in amazing ways in your life and circumstances.
