The Spoken Word of God

January 1, 2021 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. —Genesis 1:3

There are many natural wonders on our planet. And man has designed and pro- duced many scientific and technological marvels. But none comes close to equaling the wonder of those three words found in Genesis 1: “And God said . . .”

The eternal God and Creator of the universe, the One who holds all the bodies of water on the earth in the palm of His hand, the One who uses the continents as His footstool, the One who measures the span of the universe with the width of His hand—that God has spoken to us.

In the spiritual realm, God has given us many marvelous gifts—divine wonders that make us stand in awe of His greatness, His power, and His love. The creation of the world, the incarnation of the Lord Jesus, the miracle of the new birth—each of these marvels is inextricably linked to the Word of God.

When God said, “Let there be light,” there was light. The “mere” spoken Word of God brought into being our entire universe.
