By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. Hebrews 11:3
We've all heard the story: God created the world out of nothing. At His command. Nothing to something. First there was God. Then he reached into the void to create something out of nothing. Essentially, it's the creation story. Intelligent design is the fancier, more modern phrase for it.
Even as an unbeliever when I was growing up, I had a sense that there was a God in heaven who could pretty much do as He pleased. To an Almighty God, nothing would have been too difficult for Him. Nothing.
I still believe that. There is an element of faith in believing that He created something out of nothing. It's not a large leap of faith for me, but I know others struggle with it.
Be encouraged today that an All Powerful God created this world. At times it's chaotic and confusing and downright hostile to people of faith, but there is order when you examine it. If we can wrap our minds around the events of the creation story (from a formless void to a populated earth), then a lot of other “faith” issues may fall into place.
