Genesis 1 and the Encouragement of Our Hearts

22 07 2008

“It is a mighty support of faith that God creates.  He that made all things with a word, what cannot he do?  He can create strength in weakness; he can create a supply of our wants.  What a foolish question was that, ‘Can he prepare a table in the wilderness?’ (Psalm 78:19).  Cannot he that made the world do much more? ‘Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.’ (Psalm 124:8).  Rest on this God for help, who made heaven and earth.  As the work of creation is a monument of God’s power, so it is a stay of faith.  Is thy heart hard? He can with a word create softness.  Is it unclean?  He can create purity.  ‘Create in me a clean heart, O God’ (Psalm 51:10).  Is the church of God low?  He can create Jerusalem a praise (Isaiah 65:18).  There is no such golden pillar for faith to stay upon as a creating power.”  – Thomas Watson
