In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.Genesis 1:1
Battle Drill Daily Devotional
This week, we consider how everything God created – including you and me – is designed to connect with each other. You can catch up on yesterday’s sermon, Designed to Connect, which kicked off our new four-week series called, Connected, here.
Read Genesis 1:1-2:3.
Have you ever stopped to think how incredible it is that everything in our universe fits and works together?
The very beginning of the Bible starts with the very simple yet profound statement that God created the heavens and the earth. Our faith is tested by only the fourth word into the Scriptures!
The galaxy we live in is vast! It is spinning at a speed of about 490,000 miles an hour, but it still takes it over 200 million years just to make one rotation. And there are at least another one trillion galaxies similar to ours in the universe.
The number of stars in the universe is more than all the grains of sand on the beaches of the world. But this complex sea of spinning stars functions with remarkable order and efficiency. There would be disastrous consequences if just one of the features of the universe were to get seriously out of kilter.
If all that is true, then it seems to me that it takes more faith to believe that anything other than God is behind it all. God really did create this universe and he is worthy of our worship and praise.
The connectedness of the universe reveals something of this God. He is relational. He wants to connect with his creation. God did not need to create the universe, he choose to do so. God’s creation of the universe, this earth and its people – you and me – is an expression of his love. As you move through creation today, marvel once again that God created it all because he loves you!

- Where is your favourite place to “get away from it all” and connect with your Creator?
