Let’s just imagine for a moment that you were tasked with the creation of a new creature. The creature had to be new and although it may have some resemblance to one or more creatures that already exist, it has to be unique. Now let’s suppose that this new creature that you were tasked with making had to be made of nothing! No cloning, no DNA, no blood from another animal, nothing to start with and nowhere to start from. That’s what God did in the book of Genesis. As we read, God didn’t even have names for His creation but allowed Adam to name them.
“Then God said ‘Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to it’s own kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to it’s own kind’, and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to it’s kind, cattle according to it’s kind, and everything that creeps upon the earth according to it’s kind. And God saw that it was good."
Take for example a duck billed Platypus that you have never seen before. Imagine just trying to describe it much less create it from nothing. What about a three toed Sloth, imagine just trying to describe it to someone who has never seen, heard of nor was even aware that there was such an animal. It would be nearly impossible to describe much less create from nothing.
Yet we read in Genesis that not only did God create the myriad of animals from nothing but He created animals that we as humans aren’t even aware of! “Science” is still finding creatures that it hadn’t yet classified nor was even aware of. The creativity, imagination and skill that God has shown in His creation is unsurpassed, unmatched and completely above anything that man can nor will ever do.
The creativity and skill of God is unbelievable! I am convinced that if people could comprehend how intelligent, skilled and creative God is that it would transform their life. Certainly when we look at the creation story and compare that to what Jesus did for us on the cross, our lives take on new meaning and our physical death takes on less meaning. Trusting God suddenly doesn't seem so difficult anymore. Trusting God doesn't seem so far fetched anymore. Trusting God even though this world is chaotic, doesn't seem so unabtainable. We find ourselves trusting things like elevators, bridges and people who have studied medicine why not trust the one who created it all?
