DECEMBER 3, Genesis 1:31
Here’s another great truth – this world was created in six days! Modern geologists who study the rock layers of the earth to determine their age tell us that this is not possible; but we know that “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible” (Mark 10:27).
Geologists work on the wrong thinking that the many layers of the earth were formed through regular and steady build-up through millions of years. They do not take into account that there was a period when the global flood in the days of Noah caused great movements on the earth’s layers. Thousands of animals died and were carried and buried in mountains and valleys by the floodwaters. So, many layers of rock formation contain the remains and bones of animals. If geologists do not believe in the flood, they will continue to have the wrong understanding of rock formations.
Is it possible that God created the entire universe in six days? Of course! How do we know? The Bible tells us so! Dear child, it is so important for us to have simple faith and trust.
Do you have faith and trust in the Lord? May the words of this hymn, “Trust and Obey”, encourage you:
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Thought: We have a young earth.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, teach me to put the authority of the Bible above that which is taught in many schools today – that the earth and universe are millions of years old. Grant me the faith to trust, and to obey. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
