When God created the universe, what did He use as material? Before the beginning, there was only God’s Spirit. There was no thing, nothing. There was only God. What did He use to create everything that presently is? We know or believe from a study of physics that energy and matter can be interchanged, but they can’t be destroyed. So if at one moment there was no thing, and at the next moment there was something where did that thing come from? What created the substance? We can infer that it was energy, and that energy was God.
You have been created in Him, through Him and for Him. And all things are held together by Him. The same energy that brought forth matter at the beginning, is the energy that continues to give life and to give substance to everything around you, including yourself. You are His workmanship created in Christ for good works that He created for you to walk in.
When the stars and the galaxies and the planets were brought forth, you were there also as a God thought. He has created you out of Himself to do things in Him that tell the story of His greatness. You’re not an afterthought. You’re not an orphan. You’re not a misplaced person. And you’re certainly not a mistake. You have a meaning and a purpose, and that the purpose is in the ongoing unfolding of God’s goodness. You’re designed to know God, to experience His love and to share it with others as He has shared Himself with you.
So when you look at the marvelous creation, know that it’s God who created it to give you life and purpose and pleasure in knowing Him. He is not only Spirit. He is not only energy. He is Love. My desire for you is what Paul expressed in Colossians: “My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, that they may have the full riches of complete understanding in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ.” So I pray this over you, that you may know Him in a deeper measure, in Jesus’ Name.
