Creation from Nothing

This post was inspired by Karen’s post here. She posted a beautiful song, “Bless Your Name Forevermore”. The first lines in the song are:

From the darkness came the light,
Out of nothingness You made life;

This got me to thinking… When we create we can only make things from other things. A building is made from bricks and mortar. Bread is made from wheat, which is grown from a seed. A light is made from a match, a spark, a switch.

When God created the world He made it from nothing. To create, He doesn’t need to plant, to gather, to process, to invent. His Word is so powerful that creation is shaped by it.

How Great is our Lord?
How Glorious is His Name?

Very interesting thought, Lynda. I love the way the picture matches so well, too.

I want to let you know that my Blest Atheist blog went down, and I replaced it with 100th Lamb (www.emahlou.blogspot.com). I explain why there.

Have a good night!
