In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1 ESV

Let there be… At His word of creation, not a single being was present except God Himself. The God who cannot lie gave an account of creation to Moses who recorded it for God’s people. It is the story God gave us to explain and reveal the order of the world in a way we can understand. By His Word we know for certain who He is and who we are, from the beginning. (See Genesis 1-2.)

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
Hebrews 11:3 ESV

Consider the order of creation in the beginning. What does it reveal about God? What does it reveal about you?
