Proverbs 8:23-25 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
How hard would it be, if you could be God, to make a world? We already know He spoke all things into existence. So just how hard could it possibly be?
Let’s see, where should we begin? Ok, I’ll just say the word, “Earth.” Poof, there’s a swirling, out of control, round piece of dirt, with no boundaries. We have a planet, bouncing around everywhere because there’s nothing holding it in place. In fact there is no outer space for it to be in. It’s just out there. Therefore, I’ll say space. Now we have a multibillion-mile atmosphere for this hunk of round dirt to float around in. How can we keep it in one place all the time? Oh yes, I’ll say, “Gravity.” CRASH! There goes my hunk of dirt. It caved in on itself. All the gravity sucked it in on top of itself because there was nothing else to pull on it from the other direction to keep an implosion from happening. Centrifugal force, I’ll start this hunk of dirt spinning so that gravity can’t pull it in on itself. Whoosh there it goes, spinning and rolling all the way across the universe. OK, so I need to create a system so this does not happen. I’ll call it a solar system, and place other swirling hunks of dirt around it. I’ll also put a gas ball right in the middle to give it light, and heat. The “Earth Ball” should be the most important so I’ll put it closest to the gas ball. FLASH! Opps, that’s a bit too hot. The Earth ball burnt up. Maybe I need to move it out a little. Three, or four dirt balls from the gas ball. And the process goes on and on… Not a simple as we thought.
OK, we know God didn’t create the earth this way. He had a plan from the beginning, and knew how it should be put together before He spoke the first word. What God has created from the beginning, has worked perfectly for centuries.
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
Godly wisdom originally created, and keeps the earth from self-destruction. Why, God had a plan for it from the beginning. Godly wisdom also created, and keeps you. He has always had a plan for you too. Shouldn’t we find, and follow that plan? We can you know. It’s writing in His Word.
