Seven Days

Today I challenge you to reflect on what God was able to accomplish in just seven short days. I’m referring to the creation of everything we know, see and understand. Our world, our universe and everything we know about anything in this existence was created in seven days – six if you don’t count the day he rested. Every law of physics and nature, every creature big and small, time and space as we know it, everything. I’m in the process of working my way through the bible again and as I reflect on Genesis 2 verse 2 and 3, I just wanted to pause for a moment. It says:

"By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done."

If God can make the entire universe and everything we know about anything in seven days, just think what heaven will be like. God created finite rules that govern nature, physics and time itself. He did such an amazing job that it is difficult to imagine anything beyond what we experience. But God is God. Just in the span of your lifetime, think about how many new and unique worlds God could’ve created. But it took him only seven days to make this one and when he did, he looked upon it and said it was good.


If you’ve ever had an ant farm or a fish aquarium, you’ll get an idea of what it is like to see a handful of animals living in a finite reality. Well, that is what God did for us. This earth, this universe, is our playground for the time being. But there will come a day when those who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior will be in heaven where we will have a new existence with a new set of rules that govern it. I hope to see you there.
