Was just thinking…God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. But not just light. The root word in Hebrew means something more like “luminous, glorious, set on fire, shine.” When we say light, we also have to consider the absorption of light, which is what produces the vast array of colors we can see with our eyes. And we tend to think in terms of visible light, but if you stop to consider that there is a whole spectrum of light, including ultraviolet and infrared radiation…. Wait a minute…now we’re talking about energy. Hmmmmm…………..
God also said, “Let there be grass, herbs, and fruit trees,” and it was so. But not just alfalfa and thyme and apple trees. For instance, there are about 10,000 grass species in the world. 100,000 species of trees have been identified. And when He was creating the other living creatures, like insects, he didn’t stop with grasshoppers. There are over a million known species of insects.
God doesn’t do anything in half measures. When He speaks something into existence, when He breathes life, it expands into something multidimensional. No flat pages in a dusty book. More like an elaborate, full technicolor, fully animated, breathing pop-up book with surround-sound! That’s the kind of life God brings. Beyond our wildest imagination or expectation.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” – Ephesians 3:20-21.
