A very simple lesson at the beginning of 2011 can be taken from the the beginning of the Bible. God is at the beginning of it all. He is at the beginning of this new year, too. And He speaks! He is a God who spoke this very world into existence. Indeed, Hebrews 1 says, “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.”
Wow! God speaks and His Word is power! He created the universe with a word and he upholds it by the word of his power. What a privilege to read this Word and to see God revealed to us through Jesus! May we all come to know Him more deeply this year.
