By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
As believers we know ad have acknowledged as a fact that God simply spoke this universe into existence. Believing this is much more ‘reasonable’ than to believe that things just fell together in place over the passage of time, as proponents of the ‘Big-Bang’ and other theories claim.
We understand that “the worlds were framed by the Word of God”. This universe was formed, constructed, shaped fashioned by the words that God spoke.
“Things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” – that is, the visible was made of things are invisible. The natural came out of the spiritual. This is a powerful truth which we need to grasp.
The Word of God was the invisible, spiritual material that brought into existence the visible natural world. Not only were all things created by the spoken Word of God, but according to Hebrews 1:3 all things are upheld by the Word. The entire universe is sustained, regulated and kept in order by the Word of God.
We are able to understand this when we recognize that the Word of God is full of the power of God. In physics, one of the theories of the nature of light, considers light to consist of ‘photons’.
Photons are energy packets. When these photons impinge on suitable targets they are able to release their energy.
In a similar way, we often like to picture in our mind, the Words of God as energy packets, carrying in them the omnipotent power of almighty God. These words of God are able to release this ‘divine energy’ and cause the creative works of God.
Just consider these….
If God was able to bring into existence this entire universe by the power of His Word, then will He not able to bring into existence in our lives things that do not exist at present? Where there is sickness, God can bring healing and health into existence by the power of His Word. Where there is poverty, by the power of His Word God can bring material well-being into existence.
The creative power of God resides in His Word. Therefore the Word of God can create (bring into existence) the things that God has promised, even though they may not exist in our lives at present.
God used His Word to form, construct, and shape this universe. Can not God by His Word form, construct and shape our present our future? There is power in the Word of God to change the present and to shape the future.
This entire universe is sustained, upheld and regulated by the Word of God. Can not the Word of God also sustain, uphold and regulate our little lives? God’s Word carries enough and more power to sustain, regulate and keep in order the things concerning our life here on earth.
